From Office of Comms to Career Services

[COLLEGE NAME] launches Merit



[COLLEGE NAME] has joined hundreds of institutions in the US in using [Hyperlink the word “Merit” to your institution’s Merit page] to recognize students and connect stories of success and achievement to our institution’s key stakeholders, including employers.

As Career Services becomes more marketing-focused, you’ve been tasked with marketing our programs and institution to employers, as well as educating students on how to market themselves.

The [INSERT COMMS OFFICE NAME] wants to ensure our students have proof points of their participation and success at [COLLEGE NAME] to make them more attractive and marketable to employers.

The verified achievements we’re publishing to our students’ Merit pages not only reach prospective employers, but prospective students, high school guidance counselors, and principals, hometown media, elected officials, parents, and friends of our students too.

We want to give every one of our students an advantage by creating a positive online presence that tells their whole story, including academic achievements, clubs and activities, work experience, and more. [COLLEGE NAME] also wants to promote internship placements to demonstrate experiential learning opportunities available on our campus.

You can share stories of student internship and career placement by filling out our contributor form [LINK TO CONTRIBUTOR FORM]. Feel free to reach out to [me/the point person] with additional ideas, questions, or suggestions.
