Infobase is pleased to announce that two of its renowned career research products for colleges and universities—Vault and Firsthand—have been combined to form the new Firsthand Career Engagement Platform. The new platform combines the capabilities of both renowned products, allowing students and other career seekers to quickly find the best information on careers, industries, and professions at the moment they need it. The Firsthand Career Engagement Platform will empower career seekers by providing them with unique resources, impactful relationships, and powerful insights so that they can discover their best next step.
With the new Firsthand, users gain access to:
- Mentors—10,000+ experienced mentors who can offer résumé critiques, mock interviews, firsthand knowledge of roles and industries, and more
- Company Rankings and Profiles—nearly 100,000 young professionals are surveyed to identify which employers are most desirable, and Firsthand’s expert editors compile in-depth company profiles and rank companies based on prestige, diversity, quality of life, and overall experience in order to give students an unbiased look at the best places to work
- Jobs & Internships—students and alumni can search thousands of new jobs posted daily that they won’t find elsewhere
- Exclusive Events—prescheduled 1-on-1 video meetings with employers; unlimited live events, resources, jobs, and résumé uploads; and unlimited fairs and booths
- Career Guides & Advice—numerous employer, career, internship, résumé, and interviewing guide books that students and alumni can access and download directly from Firsthand’s site, with new and updated guides added regularly
