The exclusive full-service Career Service Solution for EFMD members that accelerates the matching of top talent and global career opportunities. 

On the third day of the 2019 EFMD Career Services Conference featured Highered. Dr. Amber Wigmore Alvarez, Chief Innovation Officer at Highered and Kendall Brown, Career Services and Marketing Manager at Highered provided future-proofing talent perspectives for the Career Services professionals by introducing the brand new Highered Talent Panel.

Functioning as the administrative dashboard for all Career department activities, the Highered Talent Panel completes the Highered Global Talent Ecosystem, benefiting 500 EFMD member schools with a tailor-made full-solution of services including: 

  1. Self-Posting Capabilities

The self-posting functionality significantly reduces the administrative work in the Career Services department. Schools can easily provide a link for their recruiters and alumni to post positions directly and exclusively to their school’s Highered Global Job Board with the school’s talent panel administrators approving the jobs. The one-stop solution, which supports the posting of both local positions and global positions, effectively resolves the problems and confusions of schools having multiple platforms.

See how Amsterdam School of International Business integrated the Highered solution into their Career Services to improve their efficiency and quality of service.
