In the first week of July, users of the highly successful www.mycareer.co.za noticed that it underwent a complete facelift.
Student Village, the leaders in youth marketing, have launched a new and improved career website: www.gradx.net. The site contains the same career planning tips and information that made its predecessor so popular, but is targeted more directly at the graduating student.
The site is envisioned to reinforce the association between the GradX magazine and its online extension, creating a unique partnership between on-and offline media. With more in-depth views and information on topics found in the GradX magazine, www.gradx.net is a valuable medium for graduating students and recruiters alike. The site creates an invaluable platform of communication between graduating students and the companies who wish to hire them.
New enhancements on www.gradx.net for students include an extensive company listing and an FAQ forum, helping to educate students about the world of work. Graduates will also be able to enter their details in a CRM database. This new feature will make it a lot easier for graduates to get their names out to companies all over South Africa, while giving sponsors the ability to contact South Africa's graduates through e-mail or sms.
The www.gradX.net press office, another new feature, is an area on the site that will allow companies to place their company profiles, graduate recruitment and bursary information and any career related releases that they want graduates to see. By making this information available companies have a long-standing presence on GradX.net, allowing students to be educated about them.
All in all www.gradx.net has already surpassed the offering of its predecessor. The site allows graduates to make the informed career decisions that will, no doubt, bring them the bright and successful careers they have worked so hard for.
