Frequently Asked Questions

How is UpperCampus different from other student recruiting tools?
There are some great tools in the student recruiting ecosystem that you might already utilize. We are fans of them and view them as complementary resources for your talent acquisition initiatives. As one university partner put it, student job boards are the final 5 yards in helping a student apply for an open job and the UpperCampus platform is the 95 yard drive to march them down the field to get there. Where other products might offer a point solution for mock interviews, career fair management, or job boards, UpperCampus is designed to inspire students to discover insights about the possible career path for their future long before they’re applying for jobs.
Our goal is to give students access to the employee experience– a comprehensive look into your company’s culture, diversity and inclusion initiatives, mission, the careers you offer, and the opportunities to grow– so that when the time comes to search for job openings, they’re searching for a specific role at your company.
Who is the UpperCampus Team?
UpperCampus was founded by executives from Facebook, Google and Oracle who saw a gap in the student’s journey from the classroom to the workforce. Collectively, we have started and built multiple companies from the ground up as well as run divisions of some of the largest companies in the world. As our kids went through school and were given access to a variety of "career tools", we knew that there was a better and more engaging way for students to learn about every career path, every company, and every combination of the two. Since inception, we’ve hired over 400 student interns to help build the UpperCampus platform - built for students, by students.
