SAN FRANCISCO, July 8, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Working together with South Central Coast Regional Consortium (SCCRC), Jobspeaker Inc. is launching an employer portal to consistently, efficiently build and maintain relationships between employers in the region. The Portal will also strengthen engagement between employers and the Colleges in the Consortium. Particularly now, in the COVID-19 online environment, the need to engage students, faculty, and staff is critical for the SCCRC region.
The SCCRC Employer Portal is an easy and intuitive way for students to interact with employers. The Portal also enables colleges to oversee and report on student activity and ensure they’re on the right path to a job or career.
According to Paula Hodge, SCCRC Regional Consortium Project Lead and Regional Director, the Portal is a powerful addition to the Jobspeaker platform. “The new Portal will significantly increase our ability to build and expand our employer relationships while we provide opportunities for our career-ready regional students,” said Hodge.
Jarlath O’Carroll, CEO of Jobspeaker, finds the new co-designed Portal equally exciting and foresees a positive impact for all parties. “Employers tell us that they want to hire students but want to do so efficiently across these geographically spread colleges. We make the process of employers advertising these opportunities much more efficient for everyone involved. As a result, we expect these employers will hire more students and engage with the colleges about more ways to work together.”
