is a social networking job site for college grads and alumni. It's been under the radar for a while but they are starting to make some noise. Check out this video from CNET
The site has a lot of features similar to Jobster. Including;
- Integration with Facebook
- Social Networking capabilities
- Ability to upload videos (they call it video handshake)
Their 'About Us' page says this: Alumwire, Inc. (http://www.alumwire.com) is a professional network with the mission to effectively consolidate the most important career resources for college alumni, students, and faculty, maximizing the career opportunities in the college market. Our unique content and partnerships with CareerBuilder and The Dow Jones allow us to be at the forefront of career resources. The only requirement to access Alumwire is an e-mail address with a ".edu" suffix or an invitation from an existing user. Alumwire's vision is to be the one-stop shop in career resources for the college network beginning in the United States and eventually globally.
Jobster describes themselves as:Jobster is the career network for the digital generation. We build audiences in the careers space and provide access to those audiences. Jobster integrates social networking, job search and targeted advertising technologies to connect users with people, information, and opportunities to further their careers.
Sound similar? The only major difference I see is that Jobster has more jobs to search through. Although Alumwire appears to have integration with CareerBuilder.com listings. They're both targeting the same audience. Jobster has a big head start but look out for the newbies. Alumwire is one to watch.
