GradStaff Launches CollegeDirect

Posted on: November 11th, 2015

MINNEAPOLIS (Nov. 3, 2015) — GradStaff, Inc., the pioneer in developing outsourced college recruiting services for small and medium employers, announced a new service today called CollegeDirect®. The new offering is specifically designed to assist large companies with structured recruiting platforms that require additional recruiting resources.

GradStaff’s legacy business focuses on helping companies without a formal college recruiting program recruit college grads for entry-level positions more efficiently and effectively. CollegeDirect augments large company college recruiting programs by offering clients additional resources to recruit graduating seniors during their last year on campus for positions that start immediately after graduation.

CollegeDirect is ideal for companies with an internal recruiting program who want to:

  • Respond to high demand recruiting periods
  • Increase geographic coverage due to the need to fill positions over many locations
  • Increase the resources focused on recruiting high-caliber candidates
  • Increase the number of colleges from which candidates will be recruited

Drawing upon GradStaff’s relationships with more than 900 colleges and its highly effective behavioral science-based screening technique, CollegeDirect offers a convenient and efficient way to identify top-notch graduating seniors.

“Based on our research, we know that the entry-level job market is highly inefficient. On one hand, on-campus college recruiting is expensive, especially given the large number of colleges and universities. On the other hand, with 60-70 percent of college students unsure of where their education and skills fit in the workforce, many graduating seniors simply don’t know what jobs to apply for” said GradStaff’s CEO, Bob LaBombard. “Now, employers and graduating seniors have an efficient resource to bring them together before graduation.”

GradStaff has extensive experience in a variety of industries including financial services, health care, insurance, logistics, manufacturing, retail, commercial real estate, information technology and many others.
