Updates to the My Connections Page for Students

Today’s students want convenient options for exploring and pursuing career opportunities, and we’re proud to partner with organizations offering services and features your students can use directly through your CSO System.

New options and a new look on the My Connections page

The My Connections page of the CSO System has been redesigned to be more intuitive and easy to navigate so your students can quickly connect with our partners’ valuable career resources:

Student Connections Page

Get to know the partners featured on the My Connections page:

Internships.com – provides access to more than 21,000 internship opportunities from across the U.S. and around the world as well as the Internship Predictor tool.
CollegeRecruiter – offers career exploration/job search resources and information specifically for college students and new graduates.
Indeed – the world’s #1 job site, with over 180 million unique visitors every month from over 50 different countries.
Snagajob (coming soon!) – the #1 source for hourly employment and a great resource for students working their way through school.

Where is the “Who?” button link to Facebook that previously appeared on the My Connections page?

Unfortunately, the organization that developed and supported the Who? button has discontinued it. As a result, it will no longer be available on the My Connections dashboard.

What about LinkedIn?

Recent changes to LinkedIn’s business use standards for software system integrations resulted in the retirement of our existing integration. Our technology team is currently evaluating LinkedIn’s new standards for acceptable integration and hope to establish a new LinkedIn connection in the future.

Questions?

If you have any questions about the My Connections page of your CSO System, contact our Services Team via chat, email, or phone (1-866-705-4201 x1). We hope your students will enjoy the benefits of these new options!

Chegg and CSO Research, Inc. to track career outcomes of recent college graduates

Groundbreaking new national study of college graduates tracks career progression at graduation and at 3, 6, and 12 months after commencement.

Chegg, the Student Hub, and CSO Research, Inc. recently announced a partnership to create a groundbreaking nationwide tracking survey of career outcomes for recent college graduates. The Outcomes Survey®, which CSO Research currently conducts on behalf of more than 120 schools, provides rich insights on how recent grads fare immediately after commencement and at three, six and 12 months after finishing their studies at specific schools. In partnership with Chegg, The Outcomes Survey will now be expanded into a national study of more than 200,000 members of the class of 2015.

Return on investment in college has been questioned as students are finding themselves unemployed, underemployed or in a job outside their chosen field. Further, 50% of recent graduates do not feel that college prepared them well for employment, and only 39% of hiring managers felt recent graduates were prepared for employment in their field of study.  Outcomes data can be important to students and parents in deciding where to attend college as more than half of recent grads would pick a different major or school if they could make their college choices over again.

“Chegg is committed to improving the outcomes for all students, and understanding how students fare in the workforce after they graduate hasn’t been transparent to-date,” said Anne Dwane, Chief Business Officer at Chegg. “CSO has already proven the effectiveness of The Outcomes Survey as a research tool, and with our reach into the college audience we can now make the survey applicable to the entire graduating class on a national scale.”

Academic institutions that partner with CSO Research to survey their graduates are able to use this outcomes data in their admissions recruiting, academic and career advising, and alumni relations, and to submit career outcomes data and reports to state and federal agencies, the media, professional associations, and accrediting bodies. Partner schools also receive an anonymized national aggregate dataset at six and 12 months post-graduation for use comparing their students to national averages.

“The Outcomes Survey is a rich data source for the more than 120 schools that already use it, offering administrators insights into how their classes fare upon graduation and potentially identifying areas for intervention,” said Matt Berndt, Vice President of CSO Research, Inc. “For students and parents, the national survey offers the type of comparable data that is necessary to make informed decisions on what and where they study based on potential career tracks.”

When Career and Professional Development at the University of Alabama at Birmingham joined CSO in 2012, they immediately took advantage of the ability to integrate CareerSpots videos into their new branded CSO System – DragonTrail Jobs. Over the following months, UAB staff marketed the ease of accessing CareerSpots through DragonTrail Jobs during classroom and group presentations and, as the chart below reflects, it had a huge impact on the number of student views of CareerSpots videos! In a year to year comparison, UAB saw a 321% increase in views after CSO implementation and CareerSpots integration.
