WASHINGTON & BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (Business Wire) -- Global health service company Cigna (NYSE:CI) announced today that it is teaming up with the website jobipedia.org to offer recent college grads personal, free and timely answers about job searches and the workplace directly from active company recruiters.
“In today's highly competitive global job market, many of today's recent college graduates could use a primer for professional skills such as how to behave in an interview or to assimilate into the workplace,” said John Murabito, Cigna executive vice president, human resources. “Jobipedia.org helps these graduates and other jobseekers get a better understanding of what it really takes to find and keep a job in America.”
Jobipedia.org offers information on interviewing, resumes, compensation, appropriate attire and workplace behavior. Jobipedia.org not only provides credible and reliable job-related information, but it also allows jobseekers to interact directly with experienced corporate recruiters, a unique feature for a website of this scale. Jobipedia.org was created by HR Policy Association in collaboration with Cigna and other members of the Association, which represents over 340 chief human resource officers of America's largest companies.
Since the test launch of jobipedia.org, in October 2012, professional recruiters from HR Policy member companies such as Cigna have posted more than 1,200 personalized responses to questions. Over 60 of the nation's leading colleges and universities provide links to the site from their career services websites, including Cornell, Duke, Georgia Tech, NYU, Ohio State, University of San Diego, University of Missouri-Kansas City and Tufts.
