College student Daniel Wein used Airtime to land an internship at LookThink.

 

When Daniel Wein told his mother the story of how he had just landed an internship using a social video chat service, her only response was “You got an internship where?”He quickly told his mother that this was not ChatRoulette. Wein was using Airtime.

A political science student at George Washington University in Washington D.C., Wein hadn’t been able to find an internship for the summer. Potential employers were interested, but when they found out Wein was leaving to study abroad in Australia in 6 short weeks, they were suddenly “going in a different direction,” he says.

On the day Airtime came out, he decided to jump on and give it a try. Before long, Wein told Mashable, he was meeting interesting people who he had a lot in common with.

One of those people was Lee Finkel, a Managing Partner at LookThink, a user experience firm based in Washington DC. They had friends in common, and interests. They chatted.

About ten minutes into the conversation, they realized they could help each other out.
