MINNEAPOLIS, MN, October 8, 2019 — College Recruiter, a leading job search site used by students and recent graduates, has won the Recruiting Service Innovation (ReSI) Award for Small Business Innovator of the Year in recognition of the company’s successful and almost unique migration from duration- to performance-based pricing. Performance-based pricing better aligns the goals of job search sites such as College Recruiter with their employer customers by shifting the risk of job posting ads not working well from the employer to the job search site.

“We’re honored to receive this prestigious award and would like to thank the ReSI committee and TAtech for recognizing us,” said Faith Rothberg, Chief Executive Officer, College Recruiter. “Core to our values is continuous improvement, and we’re known throughout the talent acquisition technology community as being resilient and relevant year after year. You can’t be that way without being innovative, especially in an industry as dynamic as ours. When we began this journey from charging employers by the posting to charging them for candidates delivered, we knew we had a lot of challenges ahead of us. However, our team tackled those challenges and feels great about how we’re now positioned for even better growth—and that their hard work was appreciated and recognized by some pretty amazing subject matter experts in our industry.”

Created by TAtech, the trade association for the talent acquisition technology industry, the ReSIs are the only accolade in the talent acquisition field that recognizes the companies, products and individuals that optimize the recruiter’s experience. The 2019 ReSI selection committee was chaired by George LaRocque, CEO of #HR wins, and included Madeline Laurano, Founder of Aptitude Research and Lisa Scales, Head of Resourcing & New Talent at Severn Trent.

“The biggest and best known general and aggregator job search sites sell postings on a pay-per-click (CPC) and, sometimes, pay-per-application (CPA) basis,” noted Steven Rothberg, founder of College Recruiter. “But of the 100,000 job search sites globally, only a few dozen do so at any kind of scale. Virtually every other site, general or niche, is unable or unwilling to migrate from traditional, duration- to performance-based pricing. The business challenges are great, and the technology challenges are even greater. But the benefit to our users—both employers who advertise their job openings with us and the candidates who search and apply to them—are significant, and we’ve already seen substantial increases in both revenues and profits.”

Founded in 1991, College Recruiter believes that every student and recent graduate deserves a great career. Its customers are primarily Fortune 1,000 companies, government agencies and other organizations who hire dozens or even hundreds of students and recent graduates a year from one-, two-, and four-year colleges and universities for part-time, seasonal, internship, and entry-level jobs.
