Evisors Announces 15 New College and University Partners; Schools Expand Career Services to Include Professional Experts

Online Marketplace for Expert Advice Gives Students and Alumni Access to Nearly 1,000 Career, Graduate Admissions and Business Experts

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - Evisors, an online marketplace for expert advice, announced today that it has partnered with 15 colleges and universities, granting students and alumni access to its network of nearly 1,000 highly-qualified and knowledgeable professional experts, such as career coaches, CEOs, successful entrepreneurs and top admissions consultants. Evisors has forged partnerships with both undergraduate and graduate schools. Undergraduate schools include Babson College and Emory Goizueta Business School, which also extends access to its graduate students as well, and graduate schools including the Carroll School of Management at Boston College, Claremont Graduate School, Fordham University Graduate School of Business and Oklahoma State University Spears School of Business. Evisors has also partnered with several institutions outside of the U.S., such as Cambridge Judge Business School in the U.K.

"Partnering with Evisors is a great opportunity for colleges and universities to expand their own networks and create a powerful career advising and mentorship platform for their students and recent grads," said Fredrik Marø, co-founder and CEO of Evisors. "The partners we announced today are enhancing their career services resources by putting students and graduates in command of a diverse professional network that can help them achieve their career goals."

Students and recent graduates at partner institutions can schedule one-on-one consultations and attend featured webinars to gain first-hand career insights and coaching from Evisors' experienced experts. The advisors can assist with anything from resume help, mock interview prep and strategic job search support, to guidance related to launching an entrepreneurial venture. For undergraduates interested in going to a top business or law school, Evisors also grants access to some of the leading law school and MBA admissions consultants.

"Through Evisors, I was able to find a great expert who not only answered my questions about career paths in brand management, but who could also discuss the specifics of my internship project. She even suggested software I could use to present my research data more convincingly," said Maria Ponomareva, an MBA Student at McGill University.

To find an expert and schedule a one-on-one consultation, students and recent grads can use Evisors' simple search interface to identify relevant experts, view their profiles and evaluate them by their qualifications, reviews, ratings and availability. Schools either purchase pre-paid hours for their students to use for free or sign up for university subscriptions where their students get discounts off listed prices on Evisors.com. In addition to scheduling one-on-one consultations, Evisors also offers expert webinars for university partners. Students get access to live and recorded interactive sessions with top experts covering relevant career topics like "Cracking the Consulting Case Interview" with Marc Cosentino, author of Case in Point.

"Evisors webinars are a valuable career education resource for our students. The experts are knowledgeable, prepared and customize the content well to our students' needs," said Donna Modica, Associate Director of Graduate Management Career Services at Boston College. "The web-based sessions provide interactive engagement with experts across the globe wherever and whenever our students are available."
