TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) -
Editors Note: A video is included with this press release.
A free online search tool that connects recent university and college graduates to relevant employers based on academic credentials has been introduced by online career search engine Eluta.ca.
"Making a direct connection with employers in your field before you are established has always been a challenge," said Kim Peters, President of Eluta Inc. "Our new search function cuts through the clutter and tells graduates where they stand in the workforce based on their academic credentials and hard work."
To utilize the new search tool, users can visit www.eluta.ca, click on the "New Grads" link and select their academic credentials from a list of 300 degree, diploma and certification programs. The search then provides job information based on their credentials from a database of 1,000 employers with entry-level recruiting programs, as well as a list of available openings. The company and graduate guidance is provided through The Career Directory, a best-selling employment reference guide now in its 15th edition.
"I am encouraged that new graduates now have a tool available online to help them find the best employers hiring the best people with degrees," said Richard Yerema, Editor of The Career Directory. "This tool connects graduates with outstanding entry-level recruiting opportunities and the best places to start their careers."
