Career Services

Setting up an online career center enables schools to extend career services to students and alumni anytime, anyplace, on any device. This can include career planning, networking and interviewing strategies, job search, resume development, webinars, news and related services that are enormously popular with alumni. 

Tight employment markets make this the most valuable service any college or university can offer in the months and years ahead.  Turnkey annual plans that cost less than a modestly attended alumni event exist. This investment in your alumni will repay itself many times over in alumni gifts and better organization evaluations in response to national surveys.
