AfterCollege Goes Virtual With AppVault

August 05, 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – August 5, 2010 – AfterCollege, the largest online career network for students and recent graduates, has announced a partnership with AppVault, a leading provider of solutions for both print and online recruitment ads. The two companies are collaborating to offer AfterCollege media partners and their recruitment advertisers access to job seekers through hosting Virtual Hiring Events.

The no-touch Virtual Career Event Solution powered by AppVault builds a job seeker database that media companies can own and utilize for future marketing opportunities. Through the event, media companies can create additional revenue streams, while participating employers can harvest fresh talent from their new proprietary database. Candidates that attend are screened and ranked by category.

The event provides a multifaceted media buy along with branding of media partner clients to job seekers.

Available add-ons include:

Employer - job seeker chat opportunity. The Virtual Career Event goes live, allowing employers and job seekers to interact in real-time.

Employer videos. The employer has the opportunity to enhance the experience for potential candidates through a company profile video.

Sponsorships/banner advertisements. An opportunity for media companies to offer premium banners and sponsorships.

“As the economy has rebounded and our media partners have gained momentum, many have been reengaging in Virtual Job Fairs,” said Michael Dawes, VP of Sales and Business Development at AfterCollege. “Through this alliance with AppVault, AfterCollege partners will have access to leading technology and support from two top vendors in their space. Media partners can focus on generating revenue and job seeker response instead of using time and resources on day to day maintenance of their Virtual Career Event.”

“This partnership will enhance AfterCollege’s Virtual Career Event offering to its media partners as AppVault, like AfterCollege, strives to provide our clients with the best possible customer service,” said Keith Douglas, Executive Vice President of Sales for AppVault. “AppVault’s Virtual Career Events will add new and different elements to the AfterCollege Virtual Job Fair offerings.”
