JobDash Launches New Platform to Help Colleges and Grads Reach Employment Goals

Advanced Technology and Real-Time Analytics Allows Career Services Professionals to Meet Accreditation Requirements and Help Graduates Get Hired Faster

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 --


  • Dashboard tracks, reports and predicts employment outcomes
  • Actionable data that shapes job seeker, program and campus behavior
  • Accurate, real-time analytics designed for accreditation reporting
  • Developed in partnership with schools and career services professionals

Just as college graduation season begins, JobDash has announced the launch of its business intelligence solution designed to help colleges improve student employment outcomes. JobDash combines advanced dashboard technology, analytics and strategic job search methodology to help job seekers reach their goals.

With the Class of 2014 entering the workforce, employers are expected to hire 8.6 percent more college graduates than in 2013, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

JobDash takes a strategic and comprehensive approach to improving job seeker productivity by guiding individuals step-by-step through the job search process. The platform's predictive analytics and reporting capabilities give colleges valuable insight into job seeker behavior so they can keep students on-track to get hired. Once a student earns a job, JobDash can easily and cost effectively help career services professionals verify employment.

"JobDash supports the work of a university career services department by giving them real-time data and insight into the job search habits of their students," said Dan Caffee, CEO of JobDash. "It goes on to serve students as an invaluable resource that empowers them to take charge of their job search and reduce the amount of time they spend looking for a job after graduation."

Managing student and graduate job search activity from the macro to the programmatic to the individual levels can be challenging and overwhelming for all types of colleges -- from large research universities to online programs to community and career colleges. JobDash was built in collaboration with career services professionals to ensure the solution is easy to use and provides the data and insights they need for strategic, process-driven conversations with job seekers and accrediting bodies.

JobDash currently offers full job search management functionality in a secure cloud based platform. JobDash plans to release native iOS and Android mobile applications to job seekers by the end of 2014. Future features development also includes resume customization, video interview practice and social sharing functions.

JobDash is available for university career services departments on a subscription basis. A free version of the platform is also available for students and other job seekers at https://jobdash.com.
