Equals6, the professional social network for students, has seen its membership grow dramatically, recently surpassing the 10,000 student-members milestone. The company focuses on helping students achieve their academic and career goals by connecting them with employers and peers, job opportunities and exclusive scholarships.
"We are pleased to see the growth in our Equals6 community," said Andy Osburn, CEO of Equals6. "Not only are more students joining Equals6.com, but they are also becoming involved in the online community, as students connect with each other and with employers and schools. Our members are participating in competitions, winning scholarships and contributing to a wide range of discussion topics and groups.”
According to Osburn, the company has devoted its early efforts primarily to the Canadian market, but is already seeing students join from across the US and overseas.
Recognizing that students everywhere are facing a challenging job market, Equals6 has focused on helping students bridge the academic and professional worlds. For example, Tech Idol, a software development competition taking place through equals6.com, allows employers to post software challenges with cash prizes and potentially job opportunities awaiting the student winners. Equals6 also offers exclusive scholarships to help students pay for post-secondary studies, with more than 30 currently available to be won.
“Based on our rapid growth, our efforts are clearly resonating with students,” said Osburn. “We will continue to enhance Equals6 based on feedback from students, schools and employers. Our members can look forward to more competitions, employment opportunities and scholarships, along with continuous site enhancements, including mobile access and deeper social media integration. For employers and schools, we will continue to refine our recruiting tools to allow them to easily find and connect with top student talent.”
