In 2010, Gradspring’s founders realized there was not a website that connected recent graduates to entry-level jobs that require a degree without work experience, and many of these same grads had trouble finding positions in their desired fields. From this, the idea of Gradspring was born. The website curates a thought-out collection of job listings that upholds a stringent trio of criteria: all salaries must meet the industry standard, no listings can require more than two years of experience, and all jobs must have a physical workspace—meaning no jobs in the fourth dimension.
The website welcomes account holders to peruse these listings and look for the right position. Each listing includes company information, location, and a job description, and interested candidates can apply directly on the site. The portal also houses resources to help members overhaul their resumés, hone their interview skills, and decide whether it’s appropriate to wear a necktie or bowtie on their first day in the office. Those that sign up for a six-month membership also receive a job guarantee, meaning that the site will renew their subscription until they find the right position.
