Graduateland Gateway is a free plug-in for unversities to connect their students to an international career portal. By plugging into the whole Graduateland service, Gateway provides students with a wide vareity of international career options as well as other features like a CV template, online career counseling via webcam, event calendars, and so on. Graduateland Gateway is a fresh new service released by Graduateland, and only a few days ago it was implemented at Copenhagen Business School, one of the top business schools in Scandinavia.
By using Graduateland Gateway, a university has access to the standard benefits of a university career portal plus the benefits of being plugged into the whole Graduateland system. This means that local recruiters can specifically target a certain university’s graduates, while international recruiters can find your students more easily by searching by degree program or other characteristics.
There are also a few financial incentives for universities. If an employer recruits a candidate that has been generated through Graduateland Gateway, the revenue generated is split with the university. But If an employer selects a specific university to recruit through, then all the revenue is received by the university.
One feature the Graduateland team was careful to implement is university-specific branding that fits the Graduateland portal seamlessly into campus’s standard intranet. CEO Patrick Lund tells me that, “It’s designed that way so students don’t see that they’re being transfered to a subdomain. It adds a lot of credibility for the students.”
Universities can find out how to implement Graduateland Gateway for free at this info page. If you’re a recruiter looking to tap into Graduateland’s growing list of students and graduates, find out more here.
To see how well Graduatland fits in seamlessly with the university’s pre-existing services, here’s a screenshot of Graduateland Gateway at Copenhagen Business School:
