Golden Key Partners with Collegefeed to Help its Two Million Honor Society Members Start their Careers
|By Business Wire
|May 1, 2014 12:22 PM EDT
today announced a partnership with Golden Key, an international honor
society of undergraduate and graduate student members recognized for
their collegiate achievements. Effective immediately, Golden Key’s two
million active members will get exclusive access to a wide range of
Collegefeed services, including rich,
data driven profiles, proactive
connections to 500+ hiring companies, special private
networking events with industry leaders, help with interview
preparation and more. Sign up is free for all Golden Key members.
With recognized members from over 400 schools globally, including
honoraries like Desmond Tutu, Elie Wiesel and Bill Clinton, Golden Key
carries an esteemed legacy of achievement. Starting today, hiring
managers and employers will be able to quickly recognize those Golden
Key members by special “Golden Key” badges, enabling job-seekers to
stand out and highlight their success.
“One of the reasons we started Collegefeed is that motivated students
should not have to struggle to find a good job after graduating,” said
Sanjeev Agrawal, co-founder and CEO of Collegefeed. “While the job
market is slowly improving, unemployment rates for new grads are still
double the national average for some degrees – and roughly 40 percent
are working jobs that don’t even require a degree. Through this
partnership with Golden Key, one of the oldest and most respected honor
societies in the world, we are thrilled to help every Golden Key member
find their dream job quickly.”
“I wish Collegefeed existed when I graduated – there is no other service
that makes the job search as seamless,” said Brad Rainey, executive
director at Golden Key International Honor Society. “Golden Key members
represent some of the most accomplished and inspired young graduates.
They represent the top 10-15 percent of their schools, bringing both
potential and excellence into the workforce. As the Class of 2014 looks
toward their future, we are very excited to be able to bring
Collegefeed’s strong employer network to our valued members.”
How It Works: Golden Key and Collegefeed
The brainchild of Google’s first marketing chief, Sanjeev Agrawal,
Collegefeed uses the latest technologies to completely modernize the
job-search and recruiting process for new grads. Since launching last
year, Collegefeed has already grown to tens of thousands of job-hunting
grads, 500+ hiring employers and universities from Stanford to Carnegie
Mellon have rolled out the platform campus-wide.
Through the partnership, Collegefeed will extend its proactive
connections platform of hundreds of employers to all Golden Key members.
Once they create a profile, Golden Key members will be curated and
included in feeds to hiring managers, recruiters and founders within
Collegefeed’s network. Hiring managers interested in recruiting Golden
Key members will contact the members directly. Members also get access
to useful content like interview notes, crowdsourced from thousands of
users, to help them prepare. The service is completely free for Golden
Collegefeed and Golden Key will also bring exclusive events specifically
to Golden Key members, plus access to Collegefeed’s popular private
networking events with industry leaders that are focused on early
career guidance, advice and connections. Past guests included tech
celebrities such as Rajen Sheth, known as “Father of Google Apps,”
Prashanth Fuloria, chief product officer at Flurry, Maz Jobrani, TED
speaker and comedian.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
