SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Online career network AfterCollege has announced a partnership with Journal Register Company, a leader in local news and information, to give college students and recent graduates access to thousands of entry-level job opportunities and internships in the AfterCollege network.

Employers advertising entry-level and internship positions in Journal Register Company products, which serve 992 communities in ten states, can now recruit from AfterCollege’s pool of over 2.8 million candidates from 2,300 colleges and universities around the United States. Companies will be able to target job seekers who have earned degrees or certifications that are in high demand, such as engineers, nurses, physical therapists, and biologists.

“Our new partnership with AfterCollege complements our current array of products, helping advertisers target both passive and active job seekers at multiple levels and in all job categories,” said Adam Burnham, Vice President of Local Sales for Journal Register Company.

“Journal Register Company is a perfect example of a traditional newspaper company that has transformed into true media experts.  Their newspaper is just one of the products in their arsenal – not the only one.  They are progressive and always eager to explore non-traditional ways in which to interact with readers and advertisers,” said Michael Dawes, VP of Sales and Business Development at AfterCollege. “This partnership will enable them to expand their reach to a younger audience, while helping JRC to position themselves as a ‘one-stop recruitment shop.’ AfterCollege is thrilled to work with such a pioneer in the industry.”
