New HERC Member
We would like to welcome the newest SoCal HERC member: Whittier College. We are so excited to collaborate with this great institution and continue growing SoCal HERC to be the best one-stop resource for higher education careers!
Did you know?In September, 2015 HERC conducted its first jobseeker survey to learn more about our registered jobseekers, how to improve their website experience, and their most requested tools and resources for career success. Data collected showed that HERC is well-regarded among its registered jobseekers with 87% of the survey respondents answering that they would recommend HERC to colleagues and friends. Furthermore, 80% of the surveyed jobseekers think HERC is as good or better than other higher education job boards (45% think HERC is better). Overall, the data was overwhelmingly positive and we hope to continue being a great resource for both jobseekers and employers alike!
