Alpha Chi Sigma partnership with Gradspring
According to the Associated Press, one in two recent college graduates is unemployed or
underemployed. By partnering with Gradspring, Alpha Chi Sigma is working to ensure that
its members do not suffer this fate. Gradspring is a career resource for college seniors and
recent graduates that focuses only on career opportunities that:
Require fewer than two years experience for employment consideration.
Require a bachelor's degree for consideration.
Pay a salary commensurate with industry/geographic standards.
Gradspring does not post multi-level marketing, work-from-home, commission only or pay-
to-work jobs. In addition to jobs, Gradspring also offers its members access to a bundle of
services that assist in the transition from student to working professional. These services are
available to premium Gradspring users and include:
* Gradspring profile (a great way to showcase yourself to future employers).
* Gradspring career planning tools and advice.
* A free CareerScribe profile.
* Regular online career fairs.
* Complimentary resume critique.

Gradspring is currently working with hundreds of employers across a wide spectrum of

Gradspring partnership, is offering its members, both young alumni and collegiate, a deeply
discounted Gradspring subscription. The terms of the discount are:

Alpha Chi Sigma
According to founder Sean Clem,"We knew this model was different, but I believed at our
founding-and I believe now-that there is a class of student and recent graduate that
understands, intrinsically, the value of what we at Gradspring offer. Because our members are
willing to put some skin in the game, employers take them more seriously. Further, many of
the jobs on Gradspring are not posted anywhere else on the Web. Finally, there is a lot to be
said for the peace of mind associated with knowing that all of our jobs are pre-screened for
quality." Clem added,"We actually refuse more jobs than we post; we want to make sure that
our customers, the students or parents who subscribe, truly gets what they are paying for
from our service."
The management of Gradspring is always interested in hearing the input from our cus-
tomers or from people who just want to learn more about the service. You can contact the
CEO personally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
