Intern Testimonials (click a name to read about their experience)

Also known as The Marketing Ninja. Her talents include taking selfies while riding a bicycle, texting.

A StudySoup legend who was released from the heavens to bring grace and education to students across the land.
Don’t be mistaken by the name.  Mr. Pollock is not a Pollock - it’s a common misconception, so if you say you were fooled, we won’t be mad.
Fun fact: Joe once ate 19 pounds of Cheezits to win a bet. Needless to say, he won and Cheezits shared their secret recipe with him which he soon forgot. The recipe is now lost forever.

We receive a LOT of applications. If you want your application to be reviewed first you can recruit 20 Elite Notetakers on your campus. Be sure to use your referral link so we can track it and get notified once you succeed.

You’ll also be able to track your progress in your “dashboard”.
Elite Notetaker description
Elite Notetakers are top students who get paid $300-500 per course to post their notes to StudySoup. It’s a very easy position for people who are already taking notes in class, but we are quite selective around who we choose.
Interested students can use your link to apply for the position. It’s a great resume builder, and an easy way to make money for students.
