About the Program

Are you a recent or soon-to-be college grad who wants to find a great entry level job, but are unsure of where to start?

JobGiraffe can help!

JobGiraffe recognizes that making the connection from your degree to your first job is not always obvious...

While pursuing your Bachelor’s degree, you’ve gained knowledge, skills, and maybe even some work experience. But, translating these accomplishments into a position, company, or industry where they will be valued can be challenging for a first time job seeker.

JobGiraffe is a unique team of experts in recruiting and staffing who understand this challenge and know exactly how to locate and access amazing opportunities for recent grads, especially Liberal Arts and Business majors.

According to a recent survey, 1 in 5 employers experience tremendous difficulty filling entry level positions because they can’t find candidates with the proper “soft skills” – individuals who can learn quickly, think critically and communicate effectively. JobGiraffe recognizes that many recent college grads have these soft skills, but do not know how to apply them to the job market.

Does this sound like you?

All services of JobGiraffe are free to the job seeker.
