If you’re looking for a way to direct more traffic to a specific resource or job board, then we recommend leveraging button widgets!

Button widgets allow users easy access to a particular link or resource. Button widgets are often located in the header of a platform’s homepage, and can differ from other widgets since they can be visible on every page (or one or two) if you'd like. See the below image for an example of our header button widget feature.

Button widgets are commonly used to include a URL that links to a special resource, for example, a specific institution’s job board. Incorporating buttons into your uConnect platform is important because it increases the visibility of content that plays a crucial role in career advancement (like your job board, mentor platform, etc). The example in the next screenshot below shows how one client chose to add a button linking to their institutional job board.

Other resources, including resume building guides and links for scheduling advising appointments, can also be showcased using a button widget! This adds an additional layer of support for your students and broader community, bringing forth all your valuable content front and center! 

Sidebar button widgets can be added to a specific Community page (displaying only on one page, or many pages if you'd prefer.
