Career Guide Production Hit High Gear Today

CRM Pubs - Friday, March 15, 2013

Today was a book materials deadline for our partner schools hoping to receive 200 bonus copies of their books. To say we had a few emails in our inboxes would be an understatement! Thank you for submitting your edits—it helps us immensely.

If you’ve submitted materials but have not received a confirmation of their safe arrival from us, please be patient while we carefully review, file and just generally get a handle on the influx.

In the meantime, here’s a little eye candy of some of the 2013-2014 covers:

2012-13 Publishing Progress Report

CRM Pubs - Wednesday, July 25, 2012

One by one the guides are going to the printer. We're busy chasing down approvals, checking proofs and keeping anxious eyes on the calendar as the new school year approaches. You'll want to keep an eye on our CRM Publications page because those 2011-12 links will slowly but surely be updated to 2012-13 links as the guides are completed.

Tool for Paperless Editing

CRM Pubs - Friday, January 06, 2012

CRM is a publishing company striving to be green. We’ve always done print runs specific to our schools’ needs, and we’re able to do this because we have many partners. In the past year our Career Guides were printed to FSC standards.

In an effort to cut even more paper out of our production process, Tim and Nan have installed iAnnotate on their iPads. To any of our career center partners: We invite you to install the app as well. If you haven’t begun to edit a hard copy of your guide, you will be able to do the edits in iAnnotate and send them to us electronically. We will exchange proofs with you in this manner as well.

Also, iAnnotate syncs with Dropbox, and we’d be happy to set up an editorial folder for materials submission and proofing.

Contact nan (at) for more information or help with the process.

Edit: For our career partners using Android technology, here is a link to an annotation app called RepliGo Reader: Android Apps. We can't give you a review of it, so we make no promises. We'd be happy to hear your feedback about other apps, so drop us a note anytime.

We’re Gazing Into the Future at CRM

CRM Pubs - Thursday, November 18, 2010

The last time we chatted, we were heading into the very busy month of September with six Career Fair Guides in production, and we’re happy to report a successful outcome.

We’ve been invited back onto the team for the production of the University of Maryland’s spring event guide, so we must have done something right. We’re looking forward to working with them again, and with all of our other partners for their spring events.

Visit our Career Fair Guide page to see a calendar of upcoming publications. Don’t miss an opportunity to connect with the students of these excellent schools!

What the Future Holds at CRM

This is the time of year when we take stock of the things we did right, and yes, the things we did wrong (or at least, the areas that need improvement), and we redesign ourselves.

A company, just like an individual, needs to exist in a state of training—learning new things and reassessing old techniques with a critical eye for what works and what doesn’t. CRM is sensitive to this. Thanks in large part to the feedback we get from our career center partners and their sponsors we know what we need to do to improve. We hear you!

So here are a few changes you’ll see from CRM in 2011:

            Features with appeal to our career center partners:

  • New option available for your electronic version: PDF or SWF? To see a sample of a CRM-created SWF file, check out Virginia Tech’s Career Planning Guide. Check your planning packet for further details.
  • New hosting option: CRM is now offering our partners up to 5 Mb of hosting space for your electronic publication.
  • New CRM articles in the library. Planning sheet #2 will have the new options listed. (CRM Work In Progress)
  • New CRM article designs—multiple page designs of new and favorite old articles with artwork and a little white space thrown in for good measure. The designs will be available in the CRM Article Library PDF that will be appearing soon on CRMpubs. (CRM Work In Progress)

            Features with appeal for everyone:

  • CRM is going green! All CRM publications will use paper that  is produced in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council’s (FSC) guidelines. We started this conversion in the 2010-11 season, but we are fully committing to it for 2011-12.
  • Whether our career center partners choose a PDF or SWF file for their electronic version, all advertisers will enjoy one active link in their ad.

CRM is on Facebook!

For frequent updates regarding sponsorship opportunities, we hope you'll "like" our page: College Recruitment Media

Finally, we are thankful for our partnerships with the Career Centers and all the wonderful people who work so hard keeping them up and running, so we wish you and yours A BIG CRM HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

CRM is excited to announce a new Career Guide partnership with Rhodes State College in Lima, Ohio. We look forward to working with Rhodes State Career Services.


NACE Wrap-Up

Tim and Sue returned to the office Monday morning with smiling faces from a successful trip to NACE in Orlando. They reported good conversations with old friends and new contacts alike, fun evenings, and excellent food. Tim, a veteran Segway rider, introduced Sue to the joys of geekish personal transportation at Disney World's "Around the World at Epcot" tour. And only one of them had an accident. (Hint: the person's initials are Tim Clancy.)

Spring's in Full Swing and So Are We

CRM Pubs - Friday, April 30, 2010

Books and covers keep coming in, and we’re loving it! We are starting to make production status calls to our partner schools to find out how covers and content edits are progressing. At CRM we understand that open lines of communication are important, and we encourage our Career Guide partners to contact us at any time if they have concerns or questions.

Here’s a sneak preview of some of the covers that have been recently finalized:

Next week we are expecting to hear from a lot of academic sponsors since May 3rd is an early reservation deadline. Why so early, you ask? We had our academic sponsors in mind when we set this early close, because we know many of you will be incredibly busy as the school year comes to a close, and then you will be off for a much-deserved summer break.

It has been our experience that we receive calls from interested academic sponsors in the fall, but by then the books are printing and shipping. We simply don’t want you to miss an opportunity to recruit the best and brightest students from the schools we represent.

The list of advertisers who have reserved their space is growing by leaps and bounds.

Here’s a big CRM THANK YOU to the following employers and graduate schools who have placed their orders for ad space in the 2010-2011 Career Guides:

  • Abbott
  • Accenture
  • Adler School of Professional Psychology
  • Anderson Center for Autism
  • Boeing
  • Bush School of Government & Public Service, Texas A&M University
  • CED, Consolidated Electrical Distributors
  • Clarabridge
  • Deloitte
  • Department of Animal Science, Graduate Program, Texas A&M University
  • Graduate Student Services, New Mexico State University
  • Grant Thornton LLP
  • H. John Heinz College, Carnegie Mellon University
  • Harris Teeter
  • JF Donahue, School of Business, Duquesne University
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Lehigh University, College of Arts and Sciences
  • Loyola University Maryland
