New, vetted tool offers colleges an instant tech makeover


Collegefeed for Career Center features

Features specifically support career centers of all sizes and focus, including:

Connections Engine
With the Connections Engine, students upload their resumes and Collegefeed analyzes their background and interests and starts presenting them to relevant hiring managers in their network. If any are interested, they contact the student directly. The Collegefeed Connections Engine ensures highly relevant matches and achieves a 30 percent hit rate with employers—compared to only three percent hit rate with traditional job postings.

Searchable Resume Books

The Resume Book is a private, searchable, online database of student profiles that only employers on the Collegefeed network can access. Resumes are automatically converted into “beautiful profiles and tagged with appropriate job functions such as ‘Software Engineering,’ ‘Sales,’ ‘Marketing, etc,” said the company. Employers can log in, browse profiles by job function and search by major, graduation date, keywords and dozens of other filters. Career centers have full control over who can access their Resume Books and how they are presented.

Digital Career Fairs

Digital Career Fairs bring the power of traditional university career fairs to the web—transforming the campus recruiting process into a year-round event. Students opt in and their profiles are automatically made available to participating employers. Collegefeed technology then analyzes the profiles, automatically places them into job categories, matches them with relevant companies and sends them to hiring managers. Hiring managers can review profiles at leisure and connect with interesting students with the click of a button. Carnegie Mellon will host the first Collegefeed Digital Career Fair beginning April 21st and Stanford will follow beginning May 5th.

Virtual Networking Events

This feature enables universities to host live sessions to engage with students at any time during the school year. The events are located on Google Hangouts, where students can participate as it happens or watch after the event. The platform makes it seamless for companies to offer students tech talks, interactive Q&A sessions and more.

Analytics Dashboard

With Analytics Dashboard, career centers can see comprehensive analytics on how participating students connected with companies, including profile views and connection requests. For many career centers, it’s nearly impossible to accurately track and report on the success and placement rate of their young jobseekers. Yet universities are increasingly under pressure to show ROI for their students’ college education. The Analytics Dashboard makes it easy to track success rates, as well as enables career centers to measure results of Digital Career Fairs; they can see who participated on both the student and employer sides and how many connections took place.
