LUMS Partners with Talentera to Streamline Graduate/Alumni Placements

With a bespoke Talentera-powered Student Services Portal, LUMS aims to achieve its highest placement rate yet.


Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), the premier research university of Pakistan, has recently joined hands with Talentera to power its dynamic Student Services Portal. The purpose behind choosing Talentera is simple: It’s an exceedingly easy-to-use platform that enables LUMS students and graduates to create stellar resumes, find relevant vacancies through robust filters and submit job applications within seconds.

Being the leading Liberal Arts College of the country, LUMS is home to thousands of students, each owning a unique skill set and a unique vision of their dream job. Because of this, a competent ATS had become a necessity for the celebrated institution and that is when Talentera stepped in to alleviate their most critical concerns.

Talentera is among the world’s leading Applicant Tracking and Recruitment Solutions and has over 250 loyal customers of all shapes and sizes from across the globe. Talentera specializes in automating process overheads to provide technological relief in all recruitment-related tasks while furnishing the best user experience possible. In Talentera, LUMS found an end-to-end Student Portal Solution that enabled them to streamline several processes through features like:

  • CV and Profile Building Processes
  • Job Board Integration with leading Employer Career Portals
  • Strong filtration systems to enhance job relevance upon search
  • A gamut of tools that help in moderating and managing the portal
  • Insightful reporting on companies and students to help LUMS improve their student placements

For the LUMS Career Service Office, matching its graduates’ strengths with the most fitting employers was a monumental task and achieving it relied entirely on a seamless system that could update vacancies and statuses in real-time and enable communication in the most effective way. After experiencing lukewarm results through email-based job ads, LUMS was ready to implement a sophisticated solution that was customized to their needs and met industry standards.

The partnership was a learning experience for Talentera as well. The product features were pushed to the boundaries in order to bring about a tailor-made solution that would fit the Institute’s requirements like a glove. Tanvi Chopra, the Corporate Community Manager at Talentera explains,

“At Talentera, we’re obsessed with empowering our clients by delivering on their precise requirements and building this custom solution for LUMS was no different. LUMS follows a very specific CV format, one that is widely recognized across all industries in Pakistan and they wanted the CVs exported from their Student Service Portal to match that format exactly. This was a challenge since our solution is cloud-based and the CV export usually follows a standard format. However, we delivered on their requests after multiple rounds of feedback until the clients were satisfied. This level of customization on the application format was a first for us but we were bent upon getting it through.”

With the portal set to launch in the last week of August, team Talentera is running high on adrenaline. About the launch, General Manager Talentera, Muhammad Younas says, “Despite having several clients from Pakistan including Shell, Master Group of Companies and Monami Tech, our partnership with LUMS is quite novel. They’re our first client from Pakistan’s Education Sector and we are eager to make their placements grow by providing a solution that grows along with them. Here’s to the promising start of an illustrious partnership.”
