Online partners with Scholarship Chicago to provide career opportunities for underserved students. Alliance will help HRO corporate affiliates recruit diverse, high-quality talent.
Honor Roll Online (HRO), a Naperville-based company that networks Fortune 1000 corporations with candidates at superior small colleges and universities, announced today that it has entered a strategic partnership with Scholarship Chicago, one of the largest college scholarship organizations in Chicago that has helped more than 1,200 underserved students earn their degrees and transition into productive careers. As one of the many services participating students receive during their five years in the Scholarship Chicago program, Honor Roll Online will help them secure internships and permanent jobs with corporate affiliates.
“Our relationship with Scholarship Chicago creates a winning situation for everyone,” said HRO President Laurie Byrne. “The Scholarship Chicago students can take advantage of job prospects with our corporate partners, which are among the best employers in the country. Just as importantly, these partners will be able to tap into a larger field of diverse, high-quality candidates whose outstanding work ethic and drive for success will make an immediate impact at these organizations.”
Scholarship Chicago’s top supporters, its “High 5” partners, will also be invited to join HRO’s roster of corporate affiliates, so all students in the HRO system will be able to explore opportunities at such renowned companies as Ernst & Young, Goldberg Kohn and Deloitte. In addition, Honor Roll Online’s collegiate partners will enjoy increased access to a deserving pool of applicants who may not otherwise have considered small campuses during their college searches.
HRO is looking to join forces with similar organizations in other markets. Please contact Byrne at email@example.com with suggestions or more information.
