When Rainmakers Candidates successfully complete their internships, they receive letters of recommendation from their business Host and officially become Rainmakers. At that time, they will be eligible for a FREE lifetime membership in The Rainmakers Club, an online community through which they can build their professional networks, share information about career opportunities, and give back to the community of Rainmakers Candidates in the pipeline.
In a world where online job exchanges post as many as 450,000 résumés a week, personal connections have become even more critical. In fact, research indicates that as many as 85% of jobs are secured through professional networking and business contacts. That’s reason enough for students to start early to build a professional network. However, because our Rainmakers are so young, they will not appear to be competition for more experienced business folks and will be able to build a large network while they are just getting started.
All Rainmakers Candidates must be over 18 years of age to contact an employer, serve a Rainmakers internship, and join The Rainmakers Club.
Candidates who successfully complete the Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program are eligible to apply for paid contract short-term employment with the Internship Depot or its industry partners. Successful completion of the internship will be defined by the employer who agreed to be the internship Host. These limited opportunities will be awarded to Rainmakers based on their skill sets — each open position requires specific job skills, such as strong written English skills, website design/programming, outstanding verbal communications, or expertise in social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).
With almost half-a-million jobs being posted to online job sites every week, any relationship or document that can confirm a job applicant’s character and experience can be gold.
Coming from a high-ranking corporate manager or from the leadership in a credible organization, a letter of recommendation will impress colleges and employers alike.
Rainmakers candidates who successfully complete the Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program receive two letters of recommendation: one signed by their internship business host and another signed by The Internship Depot leadership and (optionally) school administrators.
Our Rainmakers also get an online certificate with a unique identification number they can use to impress college admissions officials and potential employers alike.

Candidates who successfully complete the Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program can purchase our Rainmakers ‘Creating Sparks’ lapel pin for a small fee ($20.00) that they can wear with pride and that identifies them as a Rainmaker and a Member of The Rainmakers Club.
Make your success public. Wear the lapel pin to college or job interviews and point it out to the person who is interviewing you … and tell him or her how hard you worked in middle and high school to change your behaviors, improve your performance, and secure an internship.
