Brings in $11 Million a Year

April 26, 2008 at 9:47 pm 2 comments

A lawyer-turned-entrepreneur was the recipient of the title National Small Business of the Year at the U.S. Small Business Administration’s National Small Business Week 2008. Shawn Boyer, the award recipient, started in 2000 after a friend asked for help finding a summer internship online. When Boyer noticed the absence of websites geared toward internships or hourly jobs, he researched the business, left his job as a lawyer, found venture capital and started the company.

Eight years later, Boyer’s business has grown from just two employees to 110 full-time employees.  The company grossed sales of $11 million in 2007.
