- You want smart, professional, reliable help… but don’t have much time to spend looking for it.
- You’re in a pinch. Something just came up at the office, and you need some extra hands immediately who will get up to speed quickly and help you through.
- You’ve got an event and could use some bright, friendly faces to engage with potential customers.
Sound familiar? These are just some of the reasons the businesses in your community have turned away from temp agencies and traditional job boards and are using QuadJobs to help them staff quickly and well.
When we talked to business owners about their needs, we heard again and again about their need for quick and reliable references. If you’re making a quick hire, you don’t have time to call past employers and wait for them to get back to you. We created the JobGPA to streamline this process. When a student applies to your job, you’ll have access to their full profile and JobGPA—including reviews and ratings from other employers in your community who’ve worked with the student in the past.
Was the student professional? Did they show up on time? Did they complete work adequately or exceed expectations? These are the kinds of things you’ll learn from a student’s past reviews. (For our part, we’ll make sure the student has an active .edu account, and we’ll make it easy for them to get a background check if they’d like to add that to their profile.)
Last thing: When you hire a student through QuadJobs, please take a minute (and it really takes far less than that) to share a review of their work performance. Consider it your act of community service for the day… it’s a huge help to our community.
QuadJobs is an online platform connecting college and graduate students to local jobs.
