Abintegro, the online career development platform, today announced the acquisition of the largest independent career video library from CareerPlayer – the multi-award winning website.
The acquisition of CareerPlayer’s 6,000 videos, which have over 15 million views, is part of Abintegro’s continuous investment programme to ensure their Career Centre platform supports the employability needs of education institutions and transforms how students are prepared for an increasingly competitive job market.
Tony Heard, Abintegro’s CEO said “Helping students and graduates explore and choose a career is critically important to their employability and successful transition into the workplace. The CareerPlayer videos ensure every student can discover career possibilities – getting a proper feel for different industries and the inside track on how to break into them.”
The Abintegro Career Centre video library brings the “voice of the employer” to every student and is part of a continually expanding portfolio of multi-media careers content. The library now contains over 10,000 videos, covering almost every aspect of career exploration and advice.
Rob Wescott, one of CareerPlayer’s founders, said “Abintegro’s Career Centre is the natural home for the CareerPlayer videos and we’re delighted that the video advice can continue to be an essential part of helping hundreds of thousands of students and graduates every year to improve their employability and career decisions.”
The CareerPlayer films will be available to all Abintegro Career Centre clients, integrated into the e-learning hub, with the roll out plan beginning in the coming weeks.
