CSO's software solutions automate the entire career services process for Educators in college and university career services, cooperative education, internship, and student employment offices and the Employers who recruit their Students and Alumni for job, internship and cooperative education opportunities. CSO’s career center automation solutions enable Career Service Educators to efficiently connect their Students and Alumni with Employers, facilitate recruiting events and processes, and monitor and assess their programs, systems and student outcomes. As a major provider of career center automation solutions, meeting Educators’ needs for cost-effective and easy-to-use technology, services and content is the driving force behind all we do at CSO.
In 2001, a group of industry veterans joined forces to form CSO Research, Inc. We spent almost a year gathering input from career center professionals, then got to work and created our flagship product. From the start, our focus has been to meet the ever-changing demands of career centers with innovative automated solutions. Today, CSO is a leading provider of “next generation” automated career center solutions and is used by over 830 offices across the United States, Canada, Latin America and Europe.
CSO’s focus on the needs of its career services and experiential education clients sets us apart in the industry. Our highly customizable software and resources allows clients to provide their students and employers with the direct, personal service they deserve, while backed by a reliable, robust system.
At CSO, we’re dedicated to helping clients succeed as they bring employers, students and opportunities together in a streamlined way. The institutions we work with become part of the CSO family, and their satisfaction and success is what drives us. We understand the pressures and challenges facing career services professionals, and we’ve built our business by providing unfailing attention and support.
