Self Skills Assessment

Be honest. Don't worry about scoring yourself high, we're just using this to learn more about your specific skill set so we can match you to the right job. An internship or new grad job is supposed to be a learning experience.

Applying for an internship through First Round Capital unexpectedly landed me a dream internship at a cutting- edge stealth startup of 12 employees - ToyTalk, Inc. It was honestly the best work experience I've had to date and I worked with a truly amazing and fun-loving team. I got to walk into work every day and talk with the CEO and CTO - I really felt like part of the team. But I never would have heard about ToyTalk unless I applied through First Round Capital.

I was fortunate enough to be matched with a company that appealed to my interests, and that was also able to teach me a lot in terms of both skills and general work experience during my internship. It was an added bonus as well that I was able to complete the process from my dorm room as school work accumulated.
