Why integrate with the Vault Guides from Firsthand?

Firsthand Vault is a career intelligence resource, known for its comprehensive industry guides. These guides help to inform student pathways by providing insights into industry work life, and advice on kickstarting or pivoting your career. 

As an institution that has paid for your students' ability to access these guides, it's important to make sure this information doesn't go unnoticed. To solve for this, uConnect has developed an integration with Firsthand, to bring Vault guides to the forefront of your students' career exploration experiences.

Integrating with your Vault Guides is an important step to ensure that your students use this valuable research to inform their career outcomes. This integration gives students the opportunity to research industries and professions in the same space that they can explore job and internship opportunities.

Here's how it works

This integration works using an API feed to automatically sync all industry guides within your institution's Vault account to your uConnect dashboard. These guides will show up as Resources in your admin dashboard, providing an image, description, and deep-link to the guide in Firsthand. 

This integration also provides the opportunity for you to pre-tag the guides before they're pulled into your uConnect dashboard, so that when they sync, they're already tagged to the relevant community. This makes publishing them completely maintenance-free!

Once the guides have been imported and published, students can access them on the uConnect front-end. After reading the description and clicking through to learn more, students logged into the platform through SSO will be automatically redirected them to the selected guide within your institutional Firsthand account, creating a completely streamlined experience for your students!

If your institution uses Firsthand Vault, and you'd like to learn more about setting up the integration with uConnect, or have questions on your current integration, don't hesitate to reach out to us at support@gouconnect, and we'd be happy to help!
