LeadFerret Releases Directory of Ivy League Graduates

See the full directory at: http://leadferret.com/directory/ivy-league-graduates/

Attending an Ivy League college may in fact be the dream of a life time. With the amount of enriched history, lavish, nerdy lifestyle, it’s a no brainer why some these students choose to attend such a reputable college. Let’s not forget about the biggest rivalries between these eight Ivy League schools in sports. While the unemployment remains high, there’s some certainty that Ivy League graduates will be fortunate enough to secure a decent job. This directory is fully loaded with intelligent and driven Ivy League graduates, with a desire to change the world around them. These graduates are ready to reap the benefits of their education and showcase the very character, talent, intelligence and drive that got these kids admitted to the school of their choice in the first place.

A great resource for a company looking to hire graduates who exhibit the drive, will power and knowledge needed to get the job done. These men and women have a promising future ahead of them. Since they hold an elite degree, the diamonds-in-the-rough scattered throughout this directory have yet to anchor a salary befitting their thus far unproven abilities, which makes this a great resource for a company looking to find the best talent without the price tag that comes with years of experience.”

This is also a great resource for companies marketing to young men and women who are still looking to educate themselves, but now about corporate culture. From courses and books about how to climb the corporate ladder to further certifications beyond the degrees they have fresh in hand, these Ivy League graduates are likely still looking to sponge up whatever knowledge they can. Plus, all of these graduates are currently employed, which means they overcame the underemployment problem plaguing many other recent graduates, likely because they are the best of the best.

LeadFerret Unveils Directory of Professionals Who Work In Internet Companies

See the directory here:  http://leadferret.com/directory/internet-companies-directory

Internet companies are companies whose primary product or service is or comes from a website, and whose main source of revenue is from online activity. While most companies have an online presence, that alone is not enough to have them, for the purposes of this directory, to be labeled as an internet company.

Many companies are now coming to realize that the online marketplace should be their main source of income. While having a storefront may work for certain markets, such as supermarkets, but most for most, an online presence is where they can thrive. These companies all self-label as internet companies, which means they recognize the changing shift in the retail economy, and want to maintain their position on the cutting edge.
