Career services and campus recruitment platform that aids schools in finding career paths for their students and alumni, GradLeaders, has recently started up a new key partnership with career services marketing platform uConnect. Through its marketing platform, uConnect offers new avenues to aid education facilities in managing and creating career solutions and resources, foster data for enrollment needs, and give students more tools to succeed in the workforce.
GradLeaders is the result of a merger between two student recruitment and career services technology providers, MBA Focus and CSO Research. Combined over the last 30 years, the company has helped connect over 26,500,000 students from more than 1,000 career centers to their dream jobs at more than 100,000 companies around the world. Combined with uConnect’s higher education marketing platform that helps schools leverage the career resources, data and information they have on campus to differentiate their programs and help students make more informed, and career-driven, decisions from enrollment through completion.
“At GradLeaders, we’re more than just a career services management software provider,” said Ryan Pratt, Vice President of Marketing and Research at GradLeaders. “We’re also an extension of their office. We truly are partners with the career center, an addition to their employer relations team, helping them to prove the value of the education their institution provides. That’s why we’re so excited about this new partnership with uConnect as it offers schools a way to effortlessly showcase the work of career services and highlight their first-destination and employment outcomes data, gathered through our technology, to prospective students, parents, media, and the general public.”
Through GradLeaders APIs and uConnect’s platform, career and admissions offices in schools will be able to utilize data in real time to aid students and prospective students in better decision-making in their careers, and the staff that aid them will have better access to these resources as well to help them in turn.
“The content, data and information that lives in GradLeaders can have a massive impact on career readiness and student outcomes, but it can play as big a role in admissions and enrollment process,” said David Kozhuk, Founder of uConnect. “In the largest study of enrolled students, 86% of recently enrolled students said that 'career advancement' was the critical factor in their decision to enroll."
Many institutions have already invested in GradLeaders Career Center solution, alongside uConnect, and are able to use this technology at their leisure.
"We’re excited to help schools leverage their career data and highlight potential career pathways for students to help differentiate their programs while helping students make more informed decisions," said Kozhuk.
