Dallas, TX, September 1, 2016– GradCast.com, a division of MyOpenJobs, LLC (a Teakwood Capital company), announced today that Maricopa Community Colleges has adopted its Trackback tools for the 2016-2017 school years. This new program allows Colleges access to insight previously thought to be unattainable. Gradcast's Trackback system uses proprietary direct follow-up and external resources to specifically quantify the Job Placement success of recent Graduates from a particular School or specific program of study. Several schools nationwide are using Gradcast to tackle the daunting task of tracking whether or not Alumni are finding employment related to their Training.
Overall the Response rates are 40 to 60% better than the phone and mail surveys most schools use today! With an industry leading response rate in excess of 70% in some cases, Maricopa Community Colleges is now better prepared to answer the most basic of questions; are my School's programs working for our Graduates, and are they finding gainful employment in this rocky climate?
The most common complaint we hear from Schools, with respect to Job Placement from their recent Graduates is Timeliness and the extreme cost inefficiencies of trying to do this alone. Everyone knows that waiting on reports from any Governmental entity can take months, or even years in most cases. But our Partner schools realize they can't wait for actionable information, ad gradcast solves for this dilemma," said Sai Subramanian, CEO of MyOpenJobs. "According to the Department of Labor, CNN, and many other media outlets, only 20% of all available jobs are even publicly advertised. This is a huge challenge for recent CTE grads that are searching for their first job. GradCast.com is the first system to address this issue, allowing graduates to proactively connect with virtually every potential employer. GradCast.com provides Schools with specific tracing information on Job Placement for all of their perspective CTE graduates.
GradCast.com helps connect students to potential employers which helps reduce the workload for Career services. The platform uses a unique system that, in addition to Trackback tools that help Schools specifically quantify their recent Graduates Job Placement rates, also automates the placement process for community colleges, trade and technical schools. This simple web-based (mobile optimized) application streamlines resume distribution, makes reporting a breeze, and automatically follows-up with Graduates to report on their Employment progress.
