UVM Career Center's Social Media Accounts Earn Top-20 Ranking
- By Amanda Kenyon Waite
JobBrander, a recruiting service for interns and entry level employees, has published a 2014 list of the top 25 most popular college career services departments on social media. The University of Vermont Career Center’s presences on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn have earned a top-20 ranking.
“By now, most college career centers have realized that in order to stay relevant, they need a presence wherever students are gathering,” the JobBrander article says.
The ranking lauds UVM’s accounts for keeping “students informed with job listings, engaging videos, and helpful advice for starting their career before they leave college. Despite their relatively small student body,” the article continues, “they’ve built a solid following of over 8,800 people. They have also been doing some pretty interesting student spotlights on their Facebook page this summer.”
