Uncubed Expands Online College Recruiting Solution Amidst Shutdown of US Campuses

Online platform delivers entirely remote access to prescreened, diverse candidates

We think this moment in history will accelerate the long-term adoption of more inclusive online candidate sourcing.

Uncubed announces an expansion of the company’s successful online recruiting platform for entry-level hiring, in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the mass closing of US colleges, universities, and other in-person training programs.

Uncubed’s solution is a 100% digital platform where companies access diverse, prescreened talent from the Uncubed candidate network. The offering is delivered as a tech-enabled service where clients work closely with the Uncubed team based on demand and skillset.

“We saw the long-term decline in ROI in on-campus recruiting and built a solution for the future of college recruiting. It seems that COVID-19 just dropped us all into the future of college recruiting,” said Chris Johnson, Uncubed’s Chief Executive Officer.

The Uncubed platform is a powerful source of diverse candidates and features students from more than 500 colleges, universities, and other training programs.

One positive outcome of the coronavirus-driven campus closures, is the potential for an increase in access to opportunities, as companies shift attention to digital partners.

“A core contributor to the lack of diversity at most large companies is the reliance on the traditional on-campus recruiting model. Most companies focus on 20-40 core schools based on rankings or other outdated lists--which is not necessarily a diverse cross-section of students,” Johnson noted. “Companies can address this with digital solutions that reach significantly more schools, and we think this moment in history will accelerate the long-term adoption of more inclusive online candidate sourcing.”

In response to the heightened demand from students, universities, and companies for online recruiting solutions, Uncubed has added staff support, and will increase the availability of resources for students and companies seeking to adjust to a remote recruiting environment.

For students, Uncubed delivers unique access to job opportunities in addition to skill-building content in the form of newsletters, articles, and live webinars.

The Uncubed digital solution has proven effective for companies seeking targeted hires in one area and for those seeking to hire hundreds annually from the platform--clients span from high-growth tech to the Fortune 100, along with various local and national government programs.
