WASHINGTON, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. News & World Report announces the addition of job and internship opportunities for college students and recent graduates to the U.S. News Education site. The job listings, powered by AfterCollege, highlight companies and organizations specifically recruiting students and recent graduates. With an increasing focus on career planning, these job listings were added to help guide prospective students in their school search and recent graduates in their post-college job search.
For decades, students have turned to the U.S. News Best Colleges and Best Graduate Schools rankings to research prospective schools, including location, campus life, cost and financial aid availability, and academic offerings. Now, with the addition of the job and internship listings, prospective students can explore the opportunities available to them once they graduate from a particular school. In addition, current students and recent graduates can search available jobs targeted by school, major, and/or city on the U.S. News Education site.
"Career planning and job opportunities are more important than ever to students and recent graduates," says Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News & World Report. "We're thrilled to work with AfterCollege to bring its career-related information to the U.S. News Education audience, as well as help connect millions of college students and graduates with their first job."
AfterCollege provides employers with the broadest recruiting reach through the most targeted channels. With more than 200,000 job postings and 20,000 employers looking for recent graduates to hire, AfterCollege has become a top resource for students looking for a job or internship.
"Our collaboration with U.S. News provides a one-stop shop where students and their parents can research not only the best colleges, but also find information about relevant jobs, internships and possible career paths," says Roberto Angulo, co-founder and CEO of AfterCollege. "U.S. News & World Report wrote the book on college rankings, so we couldn't be more excited about our working together."
