Many students today are migrating to third-party job boards in search of better design, content and user experience. uConnect turns static career center websites into a vibrant campus recruiting platform designed to serve their students’ career development and job search needs right on the .edu.
Weekly email newsletters and opportunistic social media posts are not enough to successfully keep today’s students engaged. uConnect’s marketing and communication tools empower career center staff members to effectively reach their students when, where and how they want to be reached – via email, social media and mobile.
The career center staff can’t do it all. uConnect’s positions a school’s website as a place for faculty, alumni, recruiters and even fellow students to share career advice, promote events and highlight job opportunities in one central location.

The recent rise in the cost of education has been prominent, yet student outcomes continue to suffer. A recent study conducted by the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University found that over 50% of bachelor degree holders under the age of 25 are either unemployed or working in a job that doesn’t require a bachelor’s degree. College and university career centers stand the best chance to solve this problem however many are under resourced and struggle to impact student success in a scalable way. uConnect has set out to make sure students can rely on their own school’s career center to help them transition into rewarding careers.
