Definition is the largest marketplace for internships, part-time jobs and entry-level positions for students. Enabling every student, employer and educator to better understand, optimize and find internship and job opportunities, the Building Block built by Blackboard provides yet one more resource for students within their Blackboard Learn™ course environment to help them succeed both inside and outside of the classroom.

With single sign-on access to original content and proprietary career development tools, the free Building Block delivers an integrated, career-oriented experience within the Blackboard Learn platform. The solution is implemented through a building block which delivers the following functionality:

  • New “My Career” Tab – Provides a single destination for all resources within Blackboard Learn
  • Universal Search Tool – Enables students to search and apply for internships and jobs on the “My Institution” and “Course” pages
  • Facebook Integration – Allows students to repurpose their social networks to find jobs and get introduced to hiring companies
  • Career Predictor – Evaluates personal preferences to show students how they can pursue and secure the right internship or job opportunity
  • Resume Builder – Provides resume samples and best practices
