Golden Key Partners with Collegefeed to Help its Two Million Honor Society Members Start their Careers
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
today announced a partnership with Golden Key, an international honor
society of undergraduate and graduate student members recognized for
their collegiate achievements. Effective immediately, Golden Key's two
million active members will get exclusive access to a wide range of
Collegefeed services, including rich,
data driven profiles, proactive
connections to 500+ hiring companies, special private
networking events with industry leaders, help with interview
preparation and more. Sign up is free for all Golden Key members.
With recognized members from over 400 schools globally, including
honoraries like Desmond Tutu, Elie Wiesel and Bill Clinton, Golden Key
carries an esteemed legacy of achievement. Starting today, hiring
managers and employers will be able to quickly recognize those Golden
Key members by special "Golden Key" badges, enabling job-seekers to
stand out and highlight their success.
"One of the reasons we started Collegefeed is that motivated students
should not have to struggle to find a good job after graduating," said
Sanjeev Agrawal, co-founder and CEO of Collegefeed. "While the job
market is slowly improving, unemployment rates for new grads are still
double the national average for some degrees - and roughly 40 percent
are working jobs that don't even require a degree. Through this
partnership with Golden Key, one of the oldest and most respected honor
societies i the world, we are thrilled to help every Golden Key member
find their dream job quickly."
"I wish Collegefeed existed when I graduated - there is no other service
that makes the job search as seamless," said Brad Rainey, executive
director at Golden Key International Honor Society. "Golden Key members
represent some of the most accomplished and inspired young graduates.
They represent the top 10-15 percent of their schools, bringing both
potential and excellence into the workforce. As the Class of 2014 looks
toward their future, we are very excited to be able to bring
Collegefeed's strong employer network to our valued members."
