Oregon College Talent
talent will be a little easier for Oregon employers, regardless of size or
location, thanks to collaboration among 15 of Oregon’s colleges and
universities supported by an Oregon Talent Council investment.
higher education career services professionals agree that the best solution for
our fragmented recruitment landscape is to adopt a common platform for posting
jobs so employers can easily reach more student talent.
The Oregon College Talent Network is providing that
platform through Handshake.
- user friendly with 24-hour support
- requires only one
sign-in to post openings at all institutions
student skills and experience to employers' needs
- free for employers
- sign up for campus events like career fairs and on-campus interviews
The Council is
excited to partner with Oregon’s colleges and universities and help incentivize
the transition to Handshake this
year. This catalytic investment allows for more Oregon institutions to
participate in the shared platform, improves employer and student engagement, and
enables better data collection and outcome reporting capabilities.
Established in 2015, the Talent Council advises state agencies and educational
institutions on talent development and catalyzes the development of
industry-guided training programs. Investing in ways to better understand the
talent needs of Oregon companies and connecting employers to student talent are
central to the Council’s mission of making Oregonians the first and best choice
of Oregon Employers.
