We are accepting applications for the position of Platform Manager for
an online community of graduate students.
GradShare is a ProQuest sponsored outreach platform for academic
libraries seeking enhanced engagement with graduate student users. For
graduate students, the portal offers a public, peer-created knowledge
base on topics relating to the process of graduate education. The portal
supports student-to-student mentoring through user-generated content
offerings and offers ProQuest and local institutional information
services relevant to user background and mentoring interests. The portal
assists libraries and school administrators in enhancing service to a
core and underserved user segment while offering a public web channel to
ProQuest offerings. The portal offers Graduate Deans a way to monitor
and communicate with graduate students.
The GradShare Platform Manager is responsible for all aspects of the
portal offering and will oversee the expansion and maintenance of the
portal in domestic and international markets. The successful Manager
will engage four stakeholder groups to provide graduate students with
the best source of information on accomplishing their graduate education
goals. These stakeholder groups are: graduate student users, Library
Administrators, Graduate School Deans/Administrators, and ProQuest
senior and product management.
