People from around the world come to Coursera with professional
aspirations in mind and some of our favorite e-mails have been from
students who have used their courses to find new jobs. One student
recently told us how the Gamification course helped him land a position
with a gamification company. Another student, Dawn, accepted a
communications position with the University of Illinois Cancer Center
after completing Fundamentals of Pharmacology. She talked about the
course content at length during the interview process and now uses her
newfound knowledge regularly in her new position.

With students like these in mind, we are developing Coursera Career Services,
a recruiting service that connects passionate and committed Coursera
students with positions that match their skills and interests.  

If
you opt-in to our Career Services, we will try to find companies that
match your interests, skills and knowledge.  If you do well in a
Coursera class and allow us to share that information with potential
employers (who will have agreed to keep this information in strict
confidence, and use only for the purpose of considering you for
employment), this could make you even more appealing to employers.  

We’ve
been piloting the program for a few months and results have been good!
 We use sophisticated analytics to automatically find good
student-company matches, and make an introduction only if we think
there’s a reasonable chance of interest on both sides.  Recently, one of
our partner companies said “the candidates we’ve gotten from Coursera
are performing better in our process than candidates from any other
source.”  We’re working with companies of varying stage and size who are
finding great talent in innovative ways, like Facebook, Twitter,
AppDirect and TrialPay.

If you’re a Courserian working in
software engineering, and if you are open to finding a new position,
take part in this service by filling out your settings page here.
 We are starting with software engineering, but for Courserians in
other professions, we plan to expand our Career Services to other
disciplines in the future.

If you’re an employer who would like
to hire the intellectually curious and hardworking students who take
courses with Coursera, please send an e-mail to employers@coursera.org.  We are working only with a limited number of partners for the time being, but will grow this number over time.

Эти люди издеваются. Прислали мне сегодня благодарственный имэйл и приглашение на новые курсы, которые у меня на компе не открываются. То есть никак и совсем не.

Не-не, не трогаю. Мы вон купили мне планшетник, а он толком не совмещается с другими компами, какие-то свои программки нужны, пришлось нормальный ноутбук еще раз покупать для работы.
