Craig expressed that from a career service perspective the Highered platform “has been a great site for us, it has been a great site for our students been a great opportunity for us to increase awareness about job outside of the United States for both our domestic students as well as our international students. ”

From a student perspective, when Pratik was asked how he first heard about Warrington Highered Global Career Platform and what was your user experience, he stated  “The first time I learned about this platform was through an email sent through my career coach. It was followed up by a detailed discuss one-on-one with my career coach to figure out which positions matches my profile. After that the site is very user friendly, easy to navigate, easy to sort by company, location or by field. ”
