Radically Helpful Job Connections

Help everyone -- students and alumni alike -- land not just a job but a great one.

There’s no easier way for students & alumni to get jobs

Far from “just another job board," PeopleGrove can completely remove the stress of searching for a job, whether it’s students or alumni looking for a change. Only PeopleGrove's Career Access Platform™ uses smart technology to serve up jobs based on careers learners have explored. And unlike the myriad of job boards and job feeds everywhere else, only PeopleGrove provides a comprehensive collection of jobs plus a clear path to land them. 

Connect Job Seekers to Employees

First jobs come from references, not resumes

Getting a job is often “all about who you know.” But that's not fair, especially for those who haven’t built up social capital yet. So first, PeopleGrove connects learners to jobs. Then, the platform connects learners to alumni at those jobs who are willing and waiting to help them get an offer.

Project-Based Learning Opportunities

Leverage the community for projects that connect classroom to career

PeopleGrove is a new way for universities to encourage more project-based learning opportunities on campus. Learners apply for a project and are guided by built-in, step-by-step instructions to successfully complete their projects with the support of mentors. A career readiness tool, these opportunities can drive student and alumni engagement, catalyze career-skill development, and increase alumni affinity.

Projects can be posted by alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the university community.
