Why use Ribit?
Ribit is an online service that aims to match businesses looking for a certain skill set and students seeking jobs.
Ribit runs pitching and speed-dating sessions where students can meet with a number of businesses and companies so they can speak with a large pool of potential employers.
These sessions have generated a number of successful work placements. To be kept in the loop about upcoming networking events you can create an employer profile.
