Auburn University has a new job matching forum that has it competing with a host of other universities and job seekers.
University of Alabama at Birmingham students can now post job opportunities on the forum and the university is planning to open an online job matching platform in the coming months.
The job matching site is an attempt by the university to compete with more established job portals, including those at Duke University and Northwestern University.
“This is the first time that Auburn has partnered with a new service,” UAB President and CEO Mark Smith said in a statement.
In addition to job opportunities posted by the UAB community, job seekers can also upload a resume and cover letter.
For a limited time, job matching sites are offering job matching assistance for up to $10,000.
If a job seeker has applied for a job that is currently open and the application has not been submitted by the deadline, they will receive a $10 credit toward their first pay check, according to the job matching application.
