Founded by three students, teammates, and former roommates, Scholars began with one simple goal: Help students find jobs.
As undergrads at Rhodes College, the Scholars co-founders connected fellow classmates to Memphis residents. Students helped with odd jobs around the house or neighborhood, bringing in extra income while attending class full-time.
With college graduation around the corner, the three founders revised their original business model. Rather than help students find work on campus, they’d connect grads to their first, full-time job post graduation.
Scholars launched in 2019 and quickly became the largest hub of information for early-career job seekers on the internet. With a weekly podcast and blog hitting over 200,000 impressions per month, they built a community of sought-after, entry-level talent.
Today, Scholars leverages it’s community of early-career job seekers to provide content strategy to employer brands. Each week, they conduct interviews of thousands of students and recent grads, so companies know exactly what candidates want to know. By pulling analytics on candidate behavior throughout the recruiting process, Scholars hopes to reinvent the recruiting pipeline.
