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.
AlmaLaurea for students and graduates
The Curriculum Vitae. The CV is created by registering on AlmaLaurea. The CV is made accessible to companies and institutions by AlmaLaurea through a search engine that allows profiles to be selected on the basis of a series of criteria.
Each student/graduate can configure the visibility of their CV in the database and define their preferences for job offers and training courses (alert).
The CV can be used to apply for job offers and can be submitted to a company participating in a selection event. It can also be downloaded for use in other contexts (e.g. emailing).
The CV in AlmaLaurea is unique for each student/graduate even if he/she has obtained degrees from more than one University. The information related to the degree is certified by the University. The CV is available in Italian, English, French, German and Spanish and can be used in AlmaLaurea or Europass format.
