    CollegeJobConnect

    CollegeJobConnect is a seed-backed recruiting platform that connects undergraduates and employers.

    On campus recruiting is a great way to meet and hire talented individuals that can add immensely to any organization. However, developing a recruiting program presents many challenges: traveling to campuses is costly and time consuming; there is no guarantee of success, and connecting with candidates outside of your geographic region is challenging or impossible. CollegeJobConnect modernizes undergraduate recruiting, making it faster, easier and less costly than the traditional on-campus approach.

This extensions allows you to do just that. You can easily put accounts that you follow and hashtags that you wish would go away in the penalty box, where they will be silenced and feel shame.

    The Institute For Undergraduate Research

    The Institute For Undergraduate Research (UGResearch, for short) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit that is part library and part librarian for undergraduate research. We house, categorize, and tag all our content plus help our members search and discover the works they are looking for.

    Undergraduate research rarely leaves the college or university it is written at and, worse, is usually banished to collect dust and be forgotten in the basement of some random library. We are trying to change this.
