Switching systems can be a scary thought. We’ve designed GetWork to make it easy. Below you’ll find a list of common questions. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Think we missed something? Feel free to reach out we’d be happy to answer any remaining questions.

When considering a new system it's worth asking - is the switch worth the improvement? Here are some of the top reasons people switch to GetWork:

  • GetWork has been shown to dramatically increase student engagement. When students are logging in more often career services can do their job more effectively.
  • Employers love that they can manage all their schools in one system. This has been shown to increase the number of employers connecting to schools. That means more opportunities for students.
  • GetWork is easy to use. After training one director said: "I don't think we'll even need the support documents it's just so easy to use."
  • It speeds up common workflows. For example, creating an advanced report in GetWork takes less than 30 seconds.
  • It's an open platform which means you can easily bring data in and out. Or if you'd like you can securely connect GetWork to other systems.
  • We're moving fast. We're building the future, today. All while keeping our users up-to-date with the changes and without disrupting workflows.

We'd love a chance to show you why GetWork is 10x better. Schedule a demo today: 

Of course! While we think some surprises can be good (like a surprise birthday party) we don't believe in surprises in software. After your personalized demo your GetWork account manager will send you credentials on how you can access a personalized demo account. These demo credentials will let you experiment with all three views (admin, students, and employers).

Furthermore the system has been built from the ground up to scale instantaneously to meet demand.

GetWork is a well funded venture backed company positioned for a long term place in the market. When you commit to GetWork you're investing in a long future of innovation.

When we were building GetWork we heard from directors that "they'd rather retire than switch systems" or "switching systems is like pulling teeth." So we designed GetWork to be a refreshing change of pace. We've built tools that make it easier to transition. Here are just a few things we've done:

  • You'll be assigned a dedicated integrationengineer who will help guide your team through the entire process
  • Created detailed IT documentation that will helpyour IT team quickly integrate GetWork
  • Created tools that allow for easy integration of your existing data
  • Created online courses that make it easy for your staff to onboard quickly
  • Provide direct support through the application

Generally the process of integration takes less than two weeks and is painless compared to other systems.

GetWork isn't broken up into modules that you require you to pick and choose which elements you'd like. When you license GetWork you get everything. That includes everything we build currently, all future updates, and support for your staff, employers, and students.

At GetWork we understand that every institution is different. From student population to the number of administrators many variables are considered when giving a price quote. A few of the factors that we consider are:

  • Number of enrolled students
  • Number of staff members
  • General usage information
  • Current Budget
  • Multi-year contracting

Once a price is assigned there is no limit to the number of students, administrators, alumni, or employers that can be added to the system. For example, you could bring in 75,000+ alumni to GetWork without being charged extra.
