Emory, alongside leading provider of HR tech and data services, CareerBuilder, have recently partnered to offer better career choices and success for the university’s liberal arts-focused quantitative sciences program.
The partnership includes capstone project work with Emory College of Arts and Sciences and scholarship support for eligible quantitative sciences (QSS) students.
The inaugural capstone project pairs nine talented undergraduates in Emory College’s Institute for Quantitative Theory and Methods, also known as QTM, with CareerBuilder’s proprietary data.
QTM students are analyzing CareerBuilder’s deep, 24-year-old datasets, including aggregate information about job skills, resumes, geographic hiring patterns and other factors. Their goal is to help real-world job seekers in two ways: identify how to improve skills and career progression, and find the best location for new job opportunities. Capstone students are required to commit to the year-long project, which for many spans the entirety of their senior year.
In addition to the capstone project work, CareerBuilder is making a $250,000 donation to Emory College’s Scholarship Endowment Initiative. Along with an additional $500,000 match from an anonymous donor, CareerBuilder’s donation is creating a new $750,000 need-based endowed scholarship fund that will support eligible quantitative sciences students.
