AfterCollege Launches First-of-Its-Kind Service to Improve Attendance at Employers' On-Campus Recruiting Events

AfterCollege's On-Campus Outreach Service Provides Event Promotion and Student Registration Tracking for Employers Who Want to Attract the Most Desirable Students to Their College Recruiting Events

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 22, 2005 -- AfterCollege, Inc., the nation's largest career network specializing in recruitment at the college level, is pleased to launch a comprehensive service that will significantly improve employers' ability to generate quality audiences for their on-campus events. The new service was successfully deployed on a limited scale during the fall and spring college recruiting seasons last year, and will officially launch just in time for the upcoming academic year. AfterCollege's On-Campus Outreach service relies on the company's extensive university network to promote employer visits to almost any college or university in the country. At the same time, the service incorporates event registration and attendance-tracking technology developed by AfterCollege to provide employers with an accurate measure of expected event participation.

Employers who have already taken advantage of this service include Xerox Corporation, McKesson Corporation, Sun Microsystems and Informatica Corporation.

"AfterCollege understands the importance of maximizing employers' face time with their target audiences," said Roberto Angulo, CEO of AfterCollege. "Our On-Campus Outreach service allows recruiters to do just that. We are pleased with the results that our early-adopter clients have achieved and we are prepared to deliver similar, if not better results to employers who use our On-Campus Outreach service this fall."

"AfterCollege gives us an edge whenever we recruit on college campuses," said Seiji Kawanabe, College Recruiting Manager at Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA). "Their services give Informatica the quality and quantity of candidates that translate into a great return on investment for us."
