WayUp and Symplicity Partner to Expand Access to Vetted, Reputable Jobs to Universities
Symplicity Corporation, the global leader in student employability, today announced a new partnership with WayUp, a career software company for university students and recent graduates. This partnership will connect millions of students who use Symplicity’s software to well-vetted, entry-level jobs and internship opportunities posted on WayUp from the world’s leading companies such as Dow Jones, T-Mobile, Unilever, Johnson & Johnson, Nasdaq, L’Oréal, Under Armour and more.
As higher education institutions adapt to the challenges of COVID-19, most universities have cancelled in-person career fairs and on-campus interviews and are opting for fully virtual recruiting programs. Symplicity and WayUp saw a silver lining to bridge their shared values to offer students and employers an enhanced student job search experience to connect to Symplicity’s more than 1,000 career centers worldwide with the thousands of employers on WayUp, expanding student access to opportunities.
“Hundreds of thousands of employees and millions of students connect every year on Symplicity CSM. Through this partnership we will be able to add even more high quality, relevant jobs and internships to our students already using our platform,” said President & CEO of Symplicity Matthew Small.
The partnership will expand access to more quality and meaningful opportunities for millions of Symplicity student users that bring a varied pool of candidates to WayUp’s customers. Universities can also shape their employment efforts with employers to engage with targeted candidates, all within one integrated platform, rather than a separate software, making it easier for the students, university career services staff, and employers to create meaningful connections.
“Our partnership with Symplicity will allow career services staff to better help their students find well-vetted, entry-level jobs and internships without any barriers,” said WayUp co-founder & CEO Liz Wessel. “Meanwhile, our robust employer base is actively looking for early and diverse talent, and we know that they will benefit greatly from this partnership by expanding their reach from 5.7 million candidates on WayUp, to many millions more who will now have access through Symplicity.”
