Transitioning Professionals

I have recently accepted a buyout from my current company and will be hitting the job market. I needed a place to organize my leads, applications and contacts at target employers. I had the opportunity to look at a number of job seeker centered CRM systems. None were as good as CareerShift.

It’s a breeze to learn and put to immediate use with rudimentary computer skills. I particularly love the company contact feature! I was using multiple web databases to locate business contacts. Hitting all of those websites is time consuming and tedious. CareerShift makes that process simple and takes seconds. My first lookup yielded exactly the person I needed for I job application I sent yesterday, as I couldn't find him on all of the usual websites. My search is organized and the paper/excel tracking system I was using is gone! I feel like I have total control of my search in an efficient, easy to use solution.

Your site is well worth the cost of admission!

I would like to thank CareerShift for their simple to use website which was crucial in landing me a job. I recently had been laid off and like everyone else started using the standard free job sites, the problem I was running into is that most off the jobs that I applied for were for temp agencies that are posting jobs for other companies. They didn't really get me the people I wanted to talk to. I had been using these sites for about two months before I heard about CareerShift from a friend. As soon as I started using CareerShift things changed, I started getting actual businesses that were posting the jobs. Within a week I was interviewing and within a month I landed my job. I truly believe that without CareerShift I would still be wasting my time, and would have missed out on my dream job.

Mike Kovacic, Network Administrator

I have been working for more than 30 years and was recently laid off. As part of my severance package, I was given one month of free service with CareerShift to assist in my job search. I was so excited to find that this is the most comprehensive online job search program I have ever seen. CareerShift has helped me identify more jobs than I would ever have been able to find on my own. CareerShift’s customer service also provides excellent and quick help. When I reached out, I received a call back the same day, with all issues resolved.

I have already called HR at my previous company to tell them how much I appreciate the service. It is really refreshing to have such a phenomenal new job search tool. It makes the task of finding a new position much less daunting and keeps the hope alive.

CareerShift is such a powerful tool. What I like about it most is that it allows you to connect with employers you would not typically have access to. Also, for any career center looking to expand its existing alumni network, CareerShift is absolutely essential.

Walter L. Tarver, III, Director, Career Center, Stockton University

Our students love CareerShift and any time that we present it to them it gets a WOW reaction. It easily finds information that other resources don't and its ability to save data into folders for later use is excellent -- Truly a great product. As an added bonus it comes with a terrific and responsive management team. Highly recommended!

John Fracchia, Associate Director, Career Services, Ithaca College

CareerShift is an excellent resource for finding contacts in companies of all industries and geographic areas.

It has the ability to look for all jobs posted at one company. It's a great one stop shop for jobs, contacts and company searches.

It's an outstanding resource for students and alumni looking to relocate to a new geographic area. Our students use it to find alumni contacts for networking purposes. Shift Happens at UNCW - we use that as our marketing campaign.

Diane Sledden Reed, Assistant Director, Career Center, University of North Carolina Wilmington

In 2012, we introduced CareerShift to our small, liberal arts campus. Since then, our students and alumni have reacted similarly with “Wow!” or “This is great!” They can’t wait to set up their own accounts and begin searching for contacts or information about companies or opportunities. Prior to CareerShift, our work with individual students was very labor intensive. Now, we have more free time as a staff, and can offer thousands of legitimate connections with just as many companies. Each time we share this resource, it’s like giving a gift…a gift that someone actually wants. Because the system has allowed our students more ownership in their job searches, they have a better understanding of the value of networking and research in the process.

Tonya Nations, Director, Career Center, Millsaps College Suzi Nyberg, Career Specialist, Career Center, Millsaps College, Else School of Management

The University of California, Riverside has been an avid fan of CareerShift since 2009. Our students and staff find great value in this tool as it’s an excellent way to search for jobs and networking leads. CareerShift provides students with thousands of more opportunities than our database alone. It’s undeniable that our students and alumni benefit from their use of CareerShift.

Linda LaTendresse, Assistant Director, Employer Relations, Career Center, UC Riverside

I’ve had the opportunity to introduce CareerShift to hundreds of alumni of Texas A&M University. After using the platform for just one hour, each alumnus was pleasantly surprised by the large number of new career opportunities they encountered.

Paul Pausky, Class of 1978, Texas A&M University

CareerShift has been an amazing tool for our students in their career development. It acts as a one-stop shop in finding professional contacts and company information, and searching a huge variety of internship and career opportunities. It also provides the feel of a personal assistant in offering a secure location to create and save career documents as well as track and remind students of important dates in their personal calendar. We are happy to offer CareerShift as a resource to our student body.

Jessie Heidemann, Associate Director, W. P. Carey School of Business Career Center, Arizona State University

We are coming upon our first year anniversary with CareerShift here at Skidmore College. It has been an invaluable resource for our students who are looking for internships, for our seniors searching for jobs, and for our alumni who are going through career transitions. CareerShift teaches job seekers that there are multiple facets to a successful search – it just isn’t enough to look for a job. The most successful candidate researches companies within their desired industry, looks for jobs in those companies, and connects with contacts who work for those companies. CareerShift does it all.

Kim Crabbe, Executive Director, Career Development Center, Skidmore College

CareerShift has proved to be a valuable tool for our students and career advisors as well. Job search in the 21st century can be a daunting and impersonal process. CareerShift allows our advisors to show students how to research companies and search for connections such as alumni they can connect with to learn more about the company culture. The system is easy to navigate and their customer service response is always quick, friendly and efficient.

Margaret (Peg) Pierce, Director, Office of Career Services, Lawrence Technological University


In addition to its capabilities as a search engine for job opportunities, CareerShift serves as a great networking tool. I used it to search for college alumni in the investment banking industry. I contacted the people who matched my description and had a phone interview just a day later.

Mike Shea, Alumni, Denison University

I love how CareerShift allows users to search for hundreds of jobs using keywords, and allows us to save the jobs to apply to at a later date. It is always a headache applying for jobs, so when something like CareerShift organizes the process for you, it makes the job search go much more smoothly.

Kelsey Spaulding, Senior, Integrated Strategic Communication, University of Kentucky

CareerShift has been the most useful search engine in helping me find work. The website simplifies everything by compiling job postings from employer websites and job boards in any city, state, or country with just a few keywords. It helped me find the job I was looking for and I'm sure it will help you too! Thank you CareerShift!

Brandon Sydow, Student

CareerShift goes above and beyond the functions of your standard jobsite… it breaks the mold. Unlike stereotypical job sites, CareerShift incorporates networking functions, allowing its users to identify and contact individuals within a specific company and field. I wasn’t bound to a cycle of waiting to hear back from employers, rather I was given the tools to be in the driver’s seat and contact them myself. I could tell that this effort was appreciated, and it couldn’t have been done without the resources that CareerShift provided.

By now you may be asking the question, “Did you get a job through CareerShift?” and the answer is yes. I remember the day I received the search result in my email and directly afterwards following the links CareerShift provided to apply to the position. Soon thereafter I was interviewing and now I can gladly say I am a Recruiter for Open Systems Healthcare and without CareerShift it wouldn’t have been possible. Thank you CareerShift!
