Daily Tickr: AfterCollege Looks to Build a LinkedIn for College Students and Recent Grads
AfterCollege has been around since the early dotcom days of the late 90′s. Surprisingly enough they have managed to stay in business. Their business has been supported by job postings from targetted employers. As we’ve discussed in posts past, job boards are dying a slow death. Hence the most significant pivot since AfterCollege launched in 1999.
