Fort Hays State University's Office of Career Services has announced the launch of a consortium Web site, Hire Kansas Talent, that provides employers with a centralized location to post jobs just once and have those jobs reach a large number of highly qualified candidates at all member schools in the state of Kansas. Hire Kansas Talent is a collaborative effort of career services offices within the state’s four-year public universities.
Leveraging a system created by career services research, FHSU's Career Services consortium Web site is located at www.hirekansastalent.com. It is an easy-to-use site that enables employers to post jobs for free and have them automatically distributed electronically to all member schools. Students at each of the member schools can view the postings at their respective career service office's Web site or resume database and job-posting system. As a result of implementing this system, students benefit from seeing a much larger number of opportunities in the area.
“We are very excited about the launch of this new Web site," said Dan Rice, director of Career Services at FHSU, "as it exemplifies our organization's focus on enhancing employment opportunities for Kansas graduates and fostering quality partnerships between employers and four-year public schools in Kansas. We believe this collaborative effort will entice employers to continue to pursue Kansas talent.”
Six other Kansas universities are participating: Emporia State University, Kansas State University, Pittsburg State University, the University of Kansas, Washburn University and Wichita State University.
