Placement

What is are placement records?

Placement records are designed to track what positions your Students have been hired for. The information on placement records are customizable so that you can create a form to fit your offices needs. Administrators, Students, and Employer Contacts are able to create placement records. Placements records are also commonly known as “Report a Hire”.

How does the placement record work?

Placement records can be created by Administrators, Students, and Employer Contacts. When a new placement record is created (by clicking the “Report a Hire” link in users left navigation menu) it is sent to your Administrative pending bin. After the placement record has been reviewed by an Administrator, the placement data is stored in the record’s activity so that it can be reported on when needed.

How do Students report a hire?

To report a hire, Students will need to click the “Report a Hire” link in their left navigation menu under the “I want to..” section. When a Student reports a hire they will be prompted to search for the job record in your system that they were hired for. If the Student is reporting a hire for a position not in your site, they are able to manually provide those position details. After identifying the job hire, Students will be promoted to provide further details on the hire and then save this record. New placement records will appear in your Administrative pending bin under the Placement menus.

Placement records create a concrete record of Students’ hires, along with the date, and additional information about the position and the Employer. Placement records also allow you to report on the number of hires in a certain timeframe, and to gauge the activity of a Student or Employer.
