Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) December 13, 2013
Startup company WeScore is shattering the traditional internship compensation model through a six week social media internship by offering an unprecedented opportunity: student loan debt payoff to the highest performers, along with a weekly stipend.
Many millennials are unaware that their generation faces more student loan debt than any generation before them. With the national student loan debt reaching the $1 trillion milestone this year, the average borrower will graduate with $35,200 in debt (CNNMoney).
In the midst of worsening student loan debt and lower median incomes (Middle Class Security Project), the millennial generation is the first in American history expected to experience lower living standards than their ancestors. “It’s time to bring this to the attention of all millennials so that we can start taking the actions now that will change our futures,” states intern Brandon Banning.
WeScore exists to make a significant financial difference for the middle class. In this case, WeScore is targeting those with student loan debt through a competitive virtual internship. The interns will be broken into eight teams, led by current employees who have worked with the company since early 2013.
Each member of the top performing team will receive student loan debt payoff of up to $35,000. However, this internship is not limited to students with loan debt. If a winning team member does not have student loan debt, he or she may pay it forward by allocating the winnings to a student loan debt holder of his or her choice.
Jacqueline Stanfill, CEO of WeScore, comments on this significant financial opportunity for the middle class: “We are not here to talk about what we do. We are ready to lead by example and practice what we preach. We exist to change lives, and we are starting with those that have acquired student debt.”
