Student and teacher create job hunting site for graduates

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—A Calvin College professor and his student are rolling out a new website for college graduates looking for jobs.

Professor Roland Hoksbergen and senior John Michael LaSalle spent this summer developing entravos.net.  The website’s Spanish name loosely translates to “come on in.”  Entravos.net lists entry-level jobs in international development, providing students a way into their industry, so they can gain experience. It is also meant to appeal to Christian organizations similar websites do not reach.

The project is part of the college’s McGregor Undergraduate Research Program, which has been around since 1999.

 “It’s cool to see Calvin supporting something that will be valuable for Calvin students and a lot of other universities in the U.S., Canada and around the world,” said LaSalle. “To me, it emphasizes the going and doing aspect of Calvin’s mission—how they’re supporting students after they leave school as well.”

LaSalle says more than 80 non-government organizations, parachurch ministries and volunteer organizations have shown interest in posting to the site.
