Prior to the pandemic, Tribbi's co-founders had recently completed their education at New York University, and were beginning to transition into the corporate world. At the beginning of 2020, once the economy began to collapse, and financial burdens rapidly increased, the partners began to search for part-time work themselves throughout the government mandated shut in.
As the restrictions imposed on businesses began to lift, the partners of Tribbi noticed that many students and businesses were looking for each other simultaneously and suddenly without a specific outlet. Indeed and Monster dominated the job market and lumped all jobs together, without a way to properly filter through, slowing down the process. The team of Tribbi worked part-time jobs throughout their college education, and understood how crucial these jobs are for the student survival. Part time entry level is a reality that allows over 90% of students to survive, especially during the weakest economy that much of our generation has seen, yet there was no platform that was specific to these sectors. This is when Tribbi was formed and taken to college campuses in New York City in an effort to increase work qualifications and decrease financial anxieties. Tribbi prides themselves with having company values designed by students, for students, with students.
