Everything You Need To Know About GradGreenhouse In One Post


In a world where technological advancements happen every second, it makes sense that recruiting advances too. GradGreenhouse was setup to do just that— combine tech with recruiting.

GradGreenhouse is an innovative and efficient online service that helps connect graduates and employers using the latest technological tools. In particular, we use online communication channels such as video calls and video uploads to aid in the recruitment process.

Though we are “high-techy”, we strive to keep our platform user-friendly and easy-peasy.

Just relying on a single sheet of paper/pdf file resume just doesn’t cut it anymore. Not only is it a boring and old-fashioned way of recruiting, it is also a short-sighted and incomplete way of judging character and skill.

There have been numerous reports of high turnover rates, universities not preparing students for the working world enough, and companies struggling to keep employees engaged at work. All of this points to the need for a more accurate and comprehensive interview and hiring processes.

We believe GradGreenhouse is major solution to this issue.

With the addition of video resumes and the time-efficiency of conducting interviews online, employers get a more conclusive evaluation of candidates as well as have more time to interview a greater volume of candidates. It also makes hiring internationally easy­­, which is very beneficial in our globalised world where a diverse staff can mean more opportunities for growth and creativity.

GradGreenhouse allows candidates to upload their resume, fill up a profile about themselves AS WELL AS upload a Video Profile (Video Resume). This helps employers  have a more comprehensive understanding of candidates quicker as well as allows graduates to have more opportunities to shine.

We are also able to use the GradGreenhouse platform to hold Virtual Career Fairs which is a great way for educational institutions to partner with companies to further help graduates connect with employers.

It seems like a no-brainer that students and organisations make the switch to utilising GradGreenhouse for their employment and recruiting needs.

It’s time you planted yourself and/or your organisation in the right soil.

We’ll save you a plot at our greenhouse.

Three Reasons Why Your University Needs A Virtual Careers Fair Right Now

It’s time to bring your Careers Fairs into the 21st century.

GradGreenhouse is a platform that makes recruitment more effective by using technology. One major way GradGreenhouse makes recruitment more effective is through our state-of-the-art Virtual Careers Fairs. Here’s an explanation about what Virtual Careers Fairs are as well as three reasons why your university needs to host one, ASAP.

It Attracts More Employers to Take Part

Virtual Careers Fairs makes it easier for employers to commit to being part of your university’s fairs.   This because it does not require them to: travel down to the location of your fair, print tons of informational brochures, or spare an employee to spend a whole day at a physical booth. Through Virtual Careers Fairs, companies can man a virtual booth at the comfort of their office, upload softcopy informational booklets or videos to the Virtual Careers Fair website, and have employees take turns logging in to the platform to man the virtual booth. Virtual Careers Fairs also allows for companies not based in your country to take part since they just need to log on to a website to take part rather than fly all the way down. In short, it takes away a lot of the manual labour required and helps companies focus on the most important objective—meeting potential hires.

It Gives Your Students More Chances To Shine

At traditional careers fairs, students would have a couple of minutes— sometimes seconds— to chat with potential employers. It is possible in scenarios like this for a really talented student to feel nervous, fumble, and ruin their chance of being hired. At our Virtual Careers Fairs however, students get a chance to create an online profile where employers can view their resumes, interesting projects they’ve done, as well as, a pre-taped video resume. This allows for students to have more avenues to shine.

It’s a Must-Have For The Future

It is apparent to all that we live in an age of technological advancement and disruption. Digital and Video Recruiting is truly the way of the future. It’s faster, more efficient, and fairer since it allows for candidates to be evaluated beyond just a one-page resume. Many leading names in the corporate and education space have started experimenting and utilising services like this. It’s time you do too. We here at GradGreenhouse have made Virtual Careers Fairs as user-friendly and accessible as possible. We’d love to share with you more about our platform. Click here to get in contact with us.

We hope we’ve given you an idea into what Virtual Careers Fairs are and why your university needs one. It’s time to embrace the future of careers fairs so you can give your students the best chance to shine.
