Out of the United Kingdom comes a new career path (of sorts) for the world's future entrepreneurs. Rajeeb Dey, Oxford grad and president of Oxford Entrepreneurs, has constructed Enternships.com, a web site with the mission of matching industrialists-in-training with small entrepreneurial businesses. The companies that announce positions can do everything -- including interviewing and choosing the right applicant -- through the site. (It's in its beta phase, but has already hosted 160 "enternship" postings.)
Dey thinks that candidates will benefit tremendously, gaining the skills required for launching a successful business by participating directly in a new enterprise fresh out of school. Who can argue with the idea that it helps to have start-up experience to launch a start-up? And anyway, larger, name-brand firms in a variety of industries aren't yet filling the thousands of jobs that were shed in the past six months. The downside is that, so far, the program's only for U.K. residents.
