Stutern, Nigeria’s internship marketplace has entered into a strategic partnership with Jobberman to tackle the menace of unemployment in the country through internship placement. Through this partnership, Stutern has become the exclusive partner of Jobberman for internship placements in the country.
The partnership will see Jobberman granting Stutern access to its more than 45,000 employer relationships. Jobberman will also put its marketing power behind Stutern as it intensifies the provision of internship opportunities to undergraduates, NYSC members and fresh graduates in Nigeria. As a result of the partnership, Stutern will also henceforth be known as Stutern by Jobberman.
Speaking on the deal, Co-founder, Stutern.com, Taiwo Ayanleye said: “We have one focus. It is internships. Get experiences, get skills, get paid. An interesting thing about our vision at Stutern is that our solution for Nigeria will be expanding to other emerging economies and that’s why we are excited about a partnership with Jobberman. And that is where we are headed.”

We have two packages for them, one is free while the other is paid and it guarantees 100% placement within 4 to 6 weeks. And for any employer looking forward to hiring interns, he should also sign-up and make a request by either posting a position or hosting curated competitions on our platform for the specific internship position they are hiring for.”
Also speaking on the partnership and the need for internship culture in Nigeria, Stutern’s Co-Founder, Kehinde Ayanleye, said: “With the increase of unemployable graduates that are churned out yearly, encouraging an internship culture is the only solution that the employers can truly and fully nurture for developing employable talents for themselves and peace for the nation. We believe that internship is the key solution to solving youth unemployment in a nation like Nigeria.
Its importance will now start to gain unavoidable vibrancy in our society and Stutern will be the leading platform that will make this happen for Nigeria and other emerging economies.
