BETHLEHEM, Pa.

A coalition of college career center directors and corporate human resource executives have unveiled a Web-based, national college recruiting system intended to link colleges, students and employers. The project, NACElink, a joint venture of the Direct Employers Association and the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), includes job postings, a résumé database and tools for career services administration and interview-scheduling.

NACElink is intended to be used by campus career center administrators, who guide and advise college students in their job searches, and by employers, who recruit and hire students and graduates.

Ted Glatt, a manager of university relations and talent sourcing for Lockheed Martin, describes the service as “uniquely designed to complement our on-campus recruiting efforts.

“It has an easy-to-use and efficient job posting feature to communicate all types of employment opportunities,” Glatt says.

Twenty-seven schools helped develop NACElink, including Yale University, the University of California at Los Angeles and Purdue University. Access to the service is available through NACE’s Web site, NACEWeb, at .
