Collegefeed Partners with DirectEmployers to Help its 700+ Members Recruit College Talent

Collegefeed today announced a partnership with DirectEmployers Association, an employer-driven association of talent acquisition and OFCCP compliance professionals, to help its 700+ Fortune 1500 companies recruit the most in-demand new grads and build an ongoing pipeline of college talent. Collegefeed’s matching engine makes it simple for companies to quickly find relevant candidates across diverse backgrounds, whether they’re first-time job seekers, new grads with disabilities or veterans re-entering the workforce. DirectEmployers member companies will also get exclusive access to a wide range of Collegefeed services, including Digital Career Fairs that bring the power of on-campus recruiting to the desktop and branding services designed to grow awareness with millennial job seekers.

DirectEmployers Association helps the world’s largest companies better utilize technology and best practices in talent acquisition to reach the most diverse pool of quality jobseekers. Hundreds of industry leaders from IBM to General Motors are active members, with 10 to 15 new companies joining every month. In addition to its focus in veteran, disability and diversity job distribution, DirectEmployers helps its members amplify their employment brand and job visibility through the proprietary .JOBS top-level domain – the first-ever interlinked and coordinated use of a top-level domain specifically built for job seekers and human resources practitioners.

“DirectEmployers helps to guide companies in the most cutting-edge and cost-efficient ways to recruit and hire the right candidates,” Sanjeev Agrawal, CEO and co-founder of Collegefeed. “For many of those companies, the ability to build brand recognition and attract millennial jobseekers is a huge challenge. We know that most new grads can only name a handful of brands as they start their careers. Our goal is to level the playing field and get as many grads and young alums connected to great companies. Through this partnership, DirectEmployers members will be able to identify, attract and recruit the talent they need to grow their business, and use the time and resources they spend on college recruiting strategically.”

“If you don’t know which companies are out there waiting for you, how can a young job seeker make an informed decision about where to start their career?” said Bill Warren, executive director of DirectEmployers Association. “Collegefeed functions as an equalizer in college recruiting. It provides the tools needed to help companies create mindshare with top students, plus the ability to hire them quickly. With the Class of 2014 beginning their job search, we’re thrilled to offer our members special access to the Collegefeed platform.”

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, 1000 hiring employers and universities from Stanford to Carnegie Mellon have rolled out the platform campus-wide.

How It Works: DirectEmployers and Collegefeed

DirectEmployers members can start hiring new grads immediately, by taking advantage of a variety of Collegefeed tools, including:

Connections Engine

Collegefeed’s Connections Engine enables students and employers to get connected faster than ever before. The Collegefeed Connections Engine ensures highly relevant matches and achieves a 40 percent hit rate with employers – compared to only three percent hit rate with traditional job postings. Students simply upload their resumes. Collegefeed analyzes their background and interests and starts presenting them to relevant hiring managers in talent feeds.

Talent Feeds

Talent feeds are highly personalized, pre-vetted lists of quality candidates created to fit a position you want to fill. Just specify your domain preferences, such as Software Engineering or Quality Assurance, in a given location. Collegefeed identifies high-quality candidates matching your needs and sends their profiles to you via email.

Searchable Resume Books

The Resume Book is a private, searchable, online database of student profiles that only employers on the Collegefeed network can access. Resumes are automatically converted into rich profiles and tagged with appropriate job functions such as Sales or Marketing. Employers can easily log in, browse profiles by job function and search by major, graduation date, keywords and dozens of other filters.

Digital Career Fairs

Digital Career Fairs bring the power of traditional university career fairs to the web – transforming the campus recruiting process into a year-round event. Students simply opt in and their profiles are automatically made available to participating employers. Collegefeed technology then analyzes the profiles, automatically places them into job categories, matches them with relevant companies and sends them to hiring managers. Hiring managers can review profiles at leisure and connect with interesting students with the click of a button.

Direct Employer members will receive exclusive access to the June 16-20, 2014 Golden Key Digital Career Fair, featuring honor society students and new grads that represent the top 15 percent of their class.

Branding

Collegefeed helps employers identify and implement best practices for growing your company’s brand awareness with new grads. Using your specific goals and assets, Collegefeed will create a custom, mobile-friendly brand page to attract and engage the brightest students from 400+ colleges. From there you can run contests, challenges and even host virtual networking sessions to interact with students.
