Two new career tools are available, Vault and Glassdoor.  Vault, a career intelligence site, and Glassdoor, an online career community. To gain access to both of these, please click here.

Glassdoor.com is an online career community where past and current employees submit company reviews, salaries, and interview information.  We also have a job board and some really great blogs that give advice to new and experienced job seekers alike.

Basically, any student who goes to Glassdoor from the link below will have access to all of our career content and won’t even need to sign up for an account or provide any personal information. This is an easy way to give students access to all of the jobs, company reviews, salaries, and interview questions that we have on the site.

Vault.com’s Career Insider is an online library that is the most comprehensive resource for career management and job search information, including insider intelligence on salaries, hiring practices and company cultures.

Here are some of the resources you have access to once you’re inside:

  • Exclusive Company Research Reports and Rankings – must-reads for every job seeker
  • Download career titles on different industries, companies and general career topics
