Review:

College Recruiter is a niche job board for companies looking to hire students or recent graduates across Canada and the U.S. The platform allows employers to advertise vacancies in a wide variety of industries, including healthcare, sales, IT, and manufacturing.

While College Recruiter is a good option for Canadian employers in search of early-career talent, the platform's primary audience is located in the U.S., and employers might find local candidates faster through Canada-based job sites, such as TalentEgg.

Pros:

  • College Recruiter helps employers connect with millions of students and college graduates nationwide.
  • Well-known local companies, such as Dollarama, Home Depot, and LifeWorks, have used the platform to find talent.
  • Employers can have their company logo and video embedded into their posting.
  • The site offers targeted mobile banner ads and display ad campaigns.
  • Employers can post part-time, seasonal, internship, and entry-level jobs.
  • The "Targeted Email Campaign" targets over 20 million candidates by school, geography, citizenship, diversity, and more.
  • The site offers great career resources, including conferences and events, informative articles, and recruiting guides.

Cons:

  • College Recruiter's head office is based in the U.S. and customer care hours are not specified on the website.
  • Pricing is not available in Canadian dollars.
  • The platform does not offer a free trial or a free job posting plan.
  • There is no online job posting process.
  • Listings aren't shared on the site's social media pages.
  • The job board is not available in French.

College Recruiter vs. TalentEgg:

Like College Recruiter, TalentEgg advertises internships and early-career jobs. While both sites offer ATS integrations, TalentEgg is more feature-rich, with video interviewing and social media promotion. TalentEgg is also more affordable, charging C$298.00 per post, compared to the latter's plans, which start at US$2,500.00 per month.

College Recruiter vs. Summerjobs.ca:

Summerjobs.ca is a Canadian job posting site for part-time positions. Both College Recruiter and Summerjobs.ca advertise roles through their partner network of sites for maximum visibility. Employers should note that College Recruiter's pricing is only available in U.S. dollars, while Summerjobs.ca is priced in Canadian dollars.

College Recruiter vs. Job Bank:

Of the two sites, Job Bank is the budget-friendly option with a free job posting service, whereas College Recruiter's recruitment campaign packages start at US$2,500.00. While Job Bank and College Recruiter both advertise jobs in Canada, the latter site is predominantly used in the U.S.
