When Do Students Apply for Jobs?

Over at FirstMark, we’re running an internship program called FirstMark Elite¬†that connects the best undergraduate and graduate computer science students with summer internships at some of the most exciting startups in the world.

We have received an incredible response from colleges all over the country. I know because I receive an email each and every time a student applies for the program. Over the past few months, I have noticed a distinct pattern in the days and time that we receive applications. So, as part of the “data exhaust” of running FirstMark Elite, here is an overview of “when students apply for jobs”. Presumably, these are also graphs of “when students aren’t eating or having fun.”
