Student.Com Partners With JobDirect.Com
Student.Com solidifies position as premier site and continues to offer the best and most useful information services to students.

Cambridge, MA (April 28, 1998) — Graduation is just around the corner, and students nationwide are scrambling to find summer internships and entry-level positions. Student Net Publishing’s Student.Com (http://www.student.com ), the first independent Web site with original daily content to serve all aspects of college life, is helping to make that search a little easier this year with the launch of its student job-search service. Found at http://www.student.com/jobs, the co-branded area is made possible through a strategic partnership with JobDirect.com (http://www.jobdirect.com ), the leading online database for employers to target, search and find prospective job candidates from the college market.

“This alliance provides our members with the most comprehensive and dependable source for exchanging information with prospective employers. With graduation approaching fast, the demand for these tools is high,” said Stewart Ugelow, founder and CEO of Student Net Publishing. “JobDirect.com specializes in internships and entry-level positions for recent college graduates, making it a natural choice for a job-search partner.”

With JobDirect’s unique interactive-matching technology, employers such as Sun Microsystems, Sears, The Peace Corps, Random House and Price Waterhouse can easily pinpoint qualified Student.Com members using the co-branded service to fill open positions. Student.Com members can also respond to postings directly online.

“Student.Com’s content and format is the highest quality in the category, and the site addresses the key areas of interest for students — including career and job related topics — making them a perfect partner for us,” said Rob Ford, President of JobDirect.com. “Once students become active on our database, they basically can kick back and let the jobs find them.”

In addition to the co-branded service at Student.Com, the relationship will also include joint on-campus marketing initiatives — through JobDirect’s JobDrive nationwide.
