What is Student Mingle and why was it launched?
Student Mingle is a new platform created to connect students interested in the fashion and beauty industries to professionals. This platform was launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic causing jobs and internships to become remote. Student Mingle was created by students, for students.
The platform is powered by Fashion Mingle, a global network of industry professionals in 200 cities and with over 120 fashion occupations, looking to mentor, connect with or hire students who have a profile on Student Mingle.
