Colleges and universities have few options to market graduate positions such as assistantships and postdocs beyond their respective University “Job Board” websites. Recruiting high-quality candidates, essential for top research positions, requires a platform that allows schools to showcase the detailed description and exemplify the opportunity at hand. HigherGrad, Inc. (http://www.highergrad.com) has launched a platform that not only helps colleges and universities list and fill their graduate positions but also gives those looking for positions a single source to search for sector-focused graduate opportunities.
HigherGrad, Inc. provides a simple, intuitive online platform for colleges and universities to list graduate openings, something currently extremely limited in higher education. Each post can be customized with images, videos, or styled text to make opening announcements stand out. With the ability to add videos and images, HigherGrad, Inc. enables a college or university to increase the visibility of their education programs by giving a prospective applicant an inside look into their individual department. The design of HigherGrad, Inc. removes the complexity of most “job board” sites by giving colleges and universities the ability to list positions in a matter of minutes, along with the flexibility to edit and relist positions with a single click, at any time. Paired with the platform’s targeting ability, colleges and universities are more apt to connect with a qualified candidate.
Most candidates searching for graduate positions become frustrated jumping from university job board to job board, and having to page through text-dominated listings. On the other hand, few college students are aware of the opportunities out there to enhance their future through graduate education because currently there is no single place to explore these opportunities. HigherGrad, Inc. removes these barriers and gives prospective candidates a clean, fast web experience that is standard in other industries.
HigherGrad, Inc. has enlisted digital marketing expert, Stone Road Media, to optimize job listings and reach more qualified candidates per posting. HigherGrad, Inc. is offering colleges and universities the ability to post their graduate positions and postdoctoral fellowships for free during this limited-time launch phase. Each listing is marketed through various web and social channels, as well as online communities, to get postings in front of qualified candidates. The enhanced analytics of HigherGrad, Inc. provides detailed, measurable return on how postings perform.
