Gradspring Posts More Than 10,000 Jobs for Recent College Graduates
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 15, 2012
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov.15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --In a few short months,
Gradspring, an online job board, has provided recent college graduates who
have less than two years of work experience, access to more than 10,000
professional, entry-level positions with top companies all over the country.
"More than 53% of current college graduates are either unemployed or
underemployed so the misconception is that there are no jobs," said Sean Clem,
president of Gradspring. "The truth is companies actually have positions to
offer but the two audiences haven't had a good matchmaking resource.
Gradspring bridges the gap between HR professionals/recruiters and the
students seeking qualified career opportunities. Gradspring provides graduates
with a way to search for quality positions, while providing employers with a
job site to quickly find candidates who are not overqualified in experience or
underqualified in education."
Since the site launched in May, more than 3,000 job-seeking users have signed
up, and Gradspring is currently adding 300-500 new job postings every day from
top companies like CoreLogic, Lockheed Martin and Alliance Bernstein.
"Using Gradspring as part of our recruitment strategy provides us with an
opportunity to expand our outreach for entry-level positions," said Sarice
Plate, Human Resources Group Director for Cadence® Design System, Inc., a
leading global electronic design innovator. "Gradspring's unique search
capabilities will help us to effectively identify qualified candidates to join
the Cadence team."
After several months of gathering information from recruiters and job seekers
on what would enrich the Gradspring experience, Gradspring has just launched a
new site featuring a more user-friendly design and improved functionality.
The new site includes significant improvements and new features, such as:
oEnhanced search capabilities
oVideo resume hosting
oRobust personal profile builder
oComplimentary resume critique
oIntuitive job recommendations according to the job seeker's preferences
oWebinars and tutorials with professionally created content/curriculum.
"The job search is a daunting and massively time-consuming endeavor,
especially for students like me already pursuing an engineering degree with
little time to spare, said Christopher Harrison Butsch, a senior at Vanderbilt
University. "Gradspring cuts out 95 percent of the noise and allows me to
easily explore and apply to top-quality positions without losing focus on my
education. Gradspring is the solution to my generation's job search woes."
Unlike other job boards, Gradspring has created a stringent screening process
for candidates and companies. Graduates will not find work from home or
similar job scam postings and companies will not waste time wading through
unsuitable applicants. Gradspring also provides recent graduates career
advice, blogs, webinars and tutorials for job seekers.
"Gradspring works because it is different," said Clem. "The difference is like
shopping at a superstore versus a boutique. We offer the boutique experience
for determined students who are serious about their career."
Gradspring is a free service to the Human Resources community that enables
recruiters to post jobs, search resumes and participate in a community of
active and motivated entry-level job seekers. Gradspring enhances career
opportunities by providing convenient, organized and affordable access to a
job board rich with diverse and legitimate entry-level job openings.
Gradspring is designed to match recent college graduates with professional
entry-level jobs and simplify the job seeking process.
