New College Pages provide a powerful community of recent grads and alumni for job sharing and long-term career connections
In an effort to help companies better connect with students and alumni, Monster.com®, the worldwide leader in connecting people to job opportunities and the flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW), today unveiled College Pages for BeKnown&trade – Monster’s fast-growing professional networking app on Facebook®. Meeting the evolving needs of employers and job seekers, the College Pages provide an opportunity for current students and graduating students to build stronger career networks and professional connections with alumni on Facebook working at top companies who are hiring.
“As soon-to-be college graduates start to think about their entry into the workforce, their first step should be building out their professional networks using the invaluable connections they have right in front of them,” said Tom Chevalier, Global Product Manager for Monster Worldwide. “Alumni networks are a key source for career opportunities for college graduates, so we wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to connect and engage right from BeKnown. BeKnown College Pages provide the career-focused social presence institutions of higher education need to drive connections between students and alumni in a way that other professional networks don’t readily offer.”
BeKnown College Pages provide institutions with a great way to build a professional network of students and alumni through Facebook, and gives page visitors an opportunity to professionally network and discover job opportunities.
