By Autumn McClenaghan on May 21, 2014

Job seekers and employers alike understand the value of attaining a higher education, which is why graduation season is the perfect time of year to focus on tool to building connections that count. Whether your next steps as a new alumnus is to continue on to graduate school or to pursue a new job opportunity, networking is an important part of every journey.

Brandman University helps connect its community with its CareerLink online job portal. This platform allows the school's Career Services department work together with employers to provide students and alumni full-time professional opportunities. Launched late last fall the service has hundreds of registered employers posting openings on the west coast in California and Washington as well as nationwide in a variety of fields and industries.

How To Leverage CareerLink

CareerLink-InterviewWe all know that there are many global networking sites in the digital world like LinkedIn and Indeed that provide you with job search features. Although these networks offer a lot of great options, and we do encourage all professionals to keep up a professional digital social network, sometimes we can feel lost among the crowd among them. As part of a nonprofit institution, Brandman’s CareerLink brings the advantages of these platforms to a scale as it is specifically designed to serve the needs of university students and alumni.

In addition to job opportunities, Brandman CareerLink includes an array of benefits including its resume and cover letter builder, career document storage and its exclusive direct chat feature. On Monday afternoons, I am personally available to answer any quick career questions our students may have through the portal’s CareerLink Chat.
