You can not follow up with the employers directly.
However, you can email or WhatsApp us after the deadline for the internship you applied for, and we will be happy to give you any updates.
Why is my profile public?
Only your basic information is public, for visibility purposes. We keep your contact information confidential.
It is also optional for you to indicate your current or previous salary in the work experience section.
It is competitive out there, so you would rather focus on creating a complete and awesome profile that will win you an interview invite, than worrying about who sees it.
Employers are the ones who view and pay attention to your profile. However, we will soon put it out of public view.
