Working as a brand ambassador for Hummingbiird was a great experience. There are not many opportunities available for college students to work for a start-up tech company & I think that’s one of the most unique aspects of this program. One of my most memorable experiences was being able to test the app & see how it works from the inside out. I’m an industrial engineering major & now I’m able to put start-up business experience on my resumé.
Hummingbiird offers great resume experience to all their ambassadors and on top of that ambassadors can receive internship credit!
