PORTAL RE-LAUNCH – The Recession-Proof model.
It is with great excitement that we are re-launching the
alumni career portal, www.alumnicareers.co.za
after the recession drove down recruitment levels significantly and forced
companies to recruit in more creative ways.
Many of you registered through our alumni site and have created a wealth
of talent that every company in SA wants access to.
Our new alumni portal will allow you to respond directly to
companies’ job ads via our site. In the
past, suitable candidates who applied for jobs were interviewed and shortlisted
and presented to clients. However, we
have had an overwhelming demand from both companies and alumni to act as more
of a conduit for talent to apply directly to clients, and hence have changed

Alumni Career portal
you to go to one website to see a range of positions from a number of named blue
chip employers, and allows you to apply directly for each position, either by
inputting your information on their career portal, or simply attaching your CV
You can also follow up directly with each

This model allows for a much greater number of
career opportunities to be offered to alumni.
Companies can now place their job specs across
all the university alumni portals, accessing incredible talent in one place

We would strongly encourage you to log into www.alumnicareers.co.za or access the
alumni career portal through our alumni website at www.alumnicareers.co.za to see the jobs on offer. The key is to build the activity levels on
the portal as the more response employers see, the more jobs they’ll advertise to
this extremely targeted audience.
