UK Opens the Vault Making Career Insider Available to Full-time Students

Published: Mar 21, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 21, 2013) — Through the James W. Stuckert Career Center, all full-time University of Kentucky students have free, unlimited access to the resources available through Career Insider, Vault.com's career intelligence portal for universities. Vault.com, a career intelligence website, provides many job-related resources to its more than 1.3 million members including industry blogs, company overviews, job listings and salary reports. 

 

Since 2001, Career Insider has provided students with useful research and analysis on industries, professions and employers, taken from a proprietary survey process that shares valuable insight from employees, the people who best know these areas.

 

"Career Insider by Vault is a valuable component of the Wildcat CareerLink site that UK students have been using to research company descriptions, goals and in-house reviews by the company’s own employees," said Reba Carroll, senior assistant director at the Stuckert Career Center. "Today’s students are very concerned with job salaries and benefits and this information is offered on Career Insider for each company listed. Many of our students have also taken advantage of the in-depth research material related to various graduate schools that can be found under the Career Insider EDUCATION tab."

 

Career Insider gives exclusive insight concerning how employees rate their companies on quality-of factors, including categories like diversity programs, green initiatives, prestige and compensation.  

 

Choosing the right career to pursue becomes less daunting as students have access to professional reviews by individuals currently working in various industries, as well as the "College Career Bible," which outlines the best educational paths to careers. Additionally, it offers several articles including the "A Day in the Life" series which allows students to realistically imagine themselves in a given profession. 

 

Students can use Career Insider to seek real job opportunities through company profiles and industry reviews that allow users to identify attainable jobs within their fields or help them find new ways to utilize their existing skills. 

 

Acing the interview becomes possible through support provided by Vault's career service professionals. Priceless industry and career-specific guidance, including cover letter examples and tips, is available, allowing students to be memorable as they apply for jobs.   

 

The "Guide to Schmoozing" teaches the art of networking. Vault also provides articles to help students build their personal brand and create a useful network with other students and professionals through new media, blogs and discussion boards.

 

Finally, Vault encourages students to not only value their worth, but to understand exactly what they have to offer a prospective employer, by offering guidance on communication and negotiation during the hiring process.   

 

With more than 80 digital guidebooks, hundreds of professional profiles and thousands of pages of actionable content, including a job and internship board, Vault's Career Insider offers invaluable assistance to every one of its users, from first-semester freshmen to high-level professionals. 

 

"This site is multi-layered and fun to peruse whether students are engaged in a serious job search or just dreaming of possibilities," Carroll said.

 

The James W. Stuckert Career Center, part of the UK Division of Undergraduate Education, strives to provide students with enriching and educational programs to enhance their working experience and employment opportunities. The center helps students explore their career options, engage in experiential learning and connect with employers.
