'WayUp' is an online platform that helps college students find part-time job opportunities. For many students, part-time employment is necessary to fund their education. This helpful online tool helps these students connect with local companies who are looking for temporary employees.

WayUp provides an online platform for students to find part-time job opportunities outside of campus. The service is free for students and allows them to create a personal profile with their grades, hobbies and prior work experience. In turn, companies can create job postings across multiple campuses to find students who are looking for part-time employment. According to founder Liz Wessel, a third of the students who apply for jobs through WayUp receive at least one offer.

The new platform ultimately makes it easier for students to connect with potential employers.
