Finding a job just got easier for college students and grads. CareerBuilder.com, the nation's largest job site with over 1 million jobs, launched a new job site tailor-made for college students and alumni. Equipped with special search capabilities, CBcampus.com provides instant access to jobs matching the student's major, experience level, skills and interests. The site also provides information on local career fairs and campus events, news on leading companies and industries, and advice for everything from building compelling resumes to moving ahead in the real world.
CBcampus.com enables college students and alumni to search for full-time and part-time jobs and internships by skill sets, job titles, job categories and locations within miles from school or home. They can also post up to five different versions of their resume to increase their visibility to potential employers in a variety of areas.
Using a comprehensive set of metrics, the site weighs job search behavior and resume information to continuously recommend positions that are best aligned with career goals -- making the job search process simpler and faster. Users can even sign up for convenient Job Alerts, which provide automatic email updates on recommended jobs on designated days.
"The job outlook for the graduating class of 2006 is positive with one- third of hiring managers reporting that recent college graduates will make up one-fourth or more of their new hires," said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder.com. "One of the main challenges graduates face in the job hunt is knowing where to begin. CBcampus.com is a one-stop resource designed specifically for students and alumni to get the tools and information they need to transition their education into viable careers. It is also quickly becoming a popular tool among campus career centers."
In the 411 section of CBcampus.com, visitors can take quizzes to assess career choices, gauge the effectiveness of their resumes, test their interview IQ and more. The site's collegiate-focused job blog, "Speak Up, Speak Out," provides interactive career information. There is also a library of helpful articles on the college job market, DOs and DON'Ts of job hunting and must knows for when you're hired.
More and more campus career centers are coming to rely on CBCampus.com as a critical resource for job hunting tools and support.
