Happy Users

"We like getting our tech challenges in front of lots of people so using the Riipen platform was a great way to filter through the most stellar individuals. Their tool definitely helped prime our pipeline to get more of the right candidates through the doors."

Craig Cook

Director of Software Engineering – Microsoft

"My experience with Riipen has been extremely pleasant. They found great industry partners for my students and they were very responsive every step of the way. As an instructor, I feel reassured that my class will be enhanced by these real-world experiences."

Sophie Winters

Agribusiness Instructor – State University of New York at Cobleskill

"As a student, there is nothing more frustrating than sending off hundreds of generic resumes that don't show off what you can really do. Riipen lets students walk the walk and really show companies just how valuable they are."

Dustin Tysick

Graduate – University of British Columbia: Sauder School of Business

"Riipen projects are a great way for students to showcase their abilities, skills and creative ideas through innovative projects hosted by the employer. This is definitely the way of the future!"

Amy Hamdorff

Senior Recruitment Manager – JOEY Restaurant Group

“Working with Dana and the team at Riipen has been a great opportunity to bring experiential learning experiences into the classroom. By connecting students with companies, it has enhanced the Brand Audit Group Project in the marketing course that I teach to 3rd and 4th-year undergraduate students. The students now have direct access to a company contact, they have the opportunity to interact with industry experts and they gain valuable feedback on their work from the employer."

Janice Rudkowski

Retail Management Instructor – Ryerson University

"So I had a conference call with the team over at MyPackage this morning... They are taking me on board to do social media work! Couldn't be more stoked to have the opportunity to be working with such a cool brand. I love Riipen."

Kieran Rheaume

Graduate – University of Victoria: Gustavson School of Business

"Riipen is a win-win proposition for both stakeholders. The students received top-tier mentoring, and we acquired competent, talented, and hungry students with fresh insights that could help grow our business."

Max Cunningham

Partner – Studio Records

"Critical to the mission of our business department is using experiential learning to prepare our graduates for the challenges of the careers of the day as well as those of the future. Thanks to Riipen, my students are now engaged in a live, data-driven problem-solving project with a local manufacturer that leads their current industry."

Lisa Walters

Operations Management Instructor – State University of New York at Fredonia

"I believe Riipen has begun to revolutionize how higher education can be enhanced through industry involvement. Thank you so much for your dedication and giving students the opportunity to improve their educational experience."

Chris Ku

"I wanted to let you know that GradusOne got back to me for an interview! I'm on my way to a second round of interviews with the HR manager next week! This is all thanks to Riipen and their awesome team! Thanks for providing students like me with these kinds of opportunities to grow professionally."
