In doing so, the readers of our digital editions enjoy a media-rich experience that causes them to return to participating publishers' digital editions and Web sites time and time again. The Challenge Graduate Prospects was the first of several publications in the UK devoted to jobhunting for new college grads. When universities started offering email distribution lists for campus recruiting, Graduate Prospects circulation dwindled and advertisers dropped out. Graduate Prospects needed a technology solution that would reduce production and distribution costs, yet retain the character of the previous print magazine and reach the new generation of digital readers. Meeting the Challenge For many years, Graduate Prospects had an enduring franchise and very profitable business in providing a printed publication — Immediate Vacancies — that alerted new graduates to positions that had recently become available within their chosen career track. The publication was distributed by mail and via delivery to university placement offices. Unfortunately, the service provided by this publication was replaced by technology as placement offices started to send out new job openings via email. This change caused circulation to drop and advertising revenues to diminish. The ad rates ©2008 Gilbane Group, Inc. 17
