ALMALAUREA

Link Campus University is one of the 79 universities that use the services of the AlmaLaurea Interuniversity Consortium: almost 90% of the graduates who earn their degrees each year. AlmaLaurea(www.almalaurea.it) annually conducts census surveys on the profile and employment status of graduates 1, 3 and 5 years after obtaining their degree.

The main purposes of the project are:

  • to collect information and evaluations on the graduates' academic pathway and employment status on behalf of the affiliated universities. The resulting analysis and statistics will then published with the aim of guiding recently graduated students in their choice of university and work and of directing the governing bodies of the universities in the planning of teaching and training activities;
  • to publish online the curriculum vitae (CV) of recently graduated students for companies, institutions and professionals looking for qualified experts. The AlmaLaurea database, available online, gets richer every year by about 200,000 CV, and is a unique tool of its kind for features, quality and timeliness.

Upon graduation, all the universities affiliated with AlmaLaurea ask their graduating students to provide through a questionnaire, the evaluations on their learning pathway (required by law).

Upon explicit consent, all graduating students can create and make available their CV in the AlmaLaurea database; the CV will be accessible to companies that will directly use the search and selection services of AlmaLaurea.

With their opinion the students will allow the realization of Surveys on the Profile and Occupational Status of graduates and contribute to improve the University System and guide those who are about to undertake an academic career.


Every year, the AlmaLaurea Consortium collects and analyzes the documentation and evaluations of all graduating students on the academic experience they have just completed, as well as interviews on the employment status of graduated students one, three and five years after graduation. The results, publicly available on the Consortium's website, are provided to the Ministry of University and Research (MUR) and to the governing bodies (evaluation teams, Quality Assurance Chairs, etc.) of the member universities. The results of the surveys guide the planning of training activities and contribute to defining the distribution of ministerial funds to universities on the basis of appropriate indicators.

The AlmaLaurea system for companies - the platform for intermediation


The AlmaLaurea Consortium makes available to all affiliated universities a series of online services for the intermediation between the University and the labor market. The system manages the accreditation of companies at the Placement office of the University and regulates the use of various services integrated with the database of students' and graduates' resumes.

Database research and selection.

The company can explore the entire database by viewing the CV in preview (without personal identifiers), through the use of the search engine that combines text search by key words with criteria based on qualifications, language skills and digital skills, preferences regarding the company area of insertion and willingness to relocate.
The company will then select the profiles in line with the position sought and access the resumes complete with identification and contact details. The selected curricula will remain available in the reserved area.
It is possible to memorize the selection criteria of each search carried out, associating a description, in order to be able to reuse it later.

Job and/or internship bulletin board.

The companies will organize their job offers independently, indicating the main features of the position and the requirements for the candidate. Upon assessment by the Placement office staff, the announcement is published and will stay online for the time specified by the company. Graduated students will browse through the offers and apply to individual ads by sending the CV in the database and a cover letter. The recruiter can receive the applications directly by e-mail and can consult and evaluate them in their reserved area.

Curriculum Vitae.

The AlmaLaurea curriculum has recently been innovated in graphics and structure for optimum synthesis and readability. The use of a standardized structure helps the recruiter to identify the key information within the curriculum vitae.
In any case, each graduate will have the tools to stand out and enhance his or her profile, integrating the information on the degree and on any professional experience with the skills acquired and the objectives achieved and using the various optional sections (information on professional qualifications/recognitions/accreditations, participation in conferences and seminars, publications...) to make the most of their experience and skills.
