Gain work experience
All Riipen projects are designed to help students develop their skills. In-class projects replace traditional course work, allowing students to complete their school work for companies and build practical skills.
Students are able to complete more intensive projects with the company's supervision to earn money and (in some cases) meet program requirements.
Ratings and reviews
Every project completed on Riipen comes with company validated ratings and reviews. These ratings and reviews go in a student's virtual portfolio, allowing students to show off the work they have completed. Students can leave their Riipen profile public or set their profile to private through their account settings.
Students can start building their networks before they graduate. They can be added to a company's talent pool if they perform well and be first in line for future opportunities.
Students can easily communicate with industry partners by using the Riipen messages function. The whole team can participate in the conversation and the instructor can facilitate this to guarantee transparency and professionalism.
