AfterCollege Employer Posting Service Grows to 3,650 Academic Departments and Student Groups

Expanded Reach Allows Employers to Self-Post Their Jobs, Internships and Events to Niche Groups on College Campuses at Any Time During the Year

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - AfterCollege, Inc., the largest career network for college students and alumni, has expanded its posting service to encompass 3,650 academic departments and student groups at over 1,000 U.S. colleges and universities. Employers logging on to AfterCollege can now choose from a comprehensive network and selectively target jobs, internships, part-time jobs and events to their target college audiences. The announcement comes just over a year after the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office awarded AfterCollege a patent for its unique approach to matching affinity-based groups with relevant opportunities.

AfterCollege's posting service allows employers to post opportunities and to announce specific events such as open houses and on-campus recruiting visits. Employers can elect to buy credits for occasional postings or they may purchase annual packages that provide unlimited posting privileges during the year. These service enhancements come as more employers reallocate their recruitment advertising budgets from large broad-based job boards to more targeted niche sites.

"AfterCollege's goal is to provide a one-stop shop for employers wishing to reach their target college audiences. We've more than doubled our posting network's reach, giving employers substantial value and time savings through a single easy-to-use posting interface," said Roberto Angulo, CEO of AfterCollege. "We've also empowered employers to post their own events at specific departments and student groups to promote on-campus visits."

Employers ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small local employers use AfterCollege to more effectively recruit college students. "AfterCollege provides invaluable tools that complement our college recruiting efforts," said Judy Kneisley, Director of Internal Staffing and Resource Planning at Parsons Corporation. "The ease of use of their services, as well as their unique way of targeting passive job seekers at departments and student groups translate into a higher return on investment for our talent acquisition efforts."
