In March 2019, we shuttered the NewGradPhysicalTherapy, NewGradOccupationalTherapy, and NewGradSpeechTherapy blogs and migrated all of their content and resources to our parent company website, CovalentCareers.com. For now, the social media pages for each new grad brand will remain live and active.
The biggest reasons for this change? We want to provide our readers with higher quality content and new web-based career development tools—both of which were only possible if we migrated to the CovalentCareers ecosystem.
Going forward, our efforts in the rehab spaces will be supported by a fast growing team of 15 San Diego-based employees rather than solely conducted by the small team that operated NewGradMedia prior. The result will be a significantly more valuable experience for you, our reader.
Just like you, we were sad to see the NewGrad domains go away, but these domain names and logos are the only elements going away. We will never remove our primary focus from the student and new grad. To be transparent with you, we were getting spread way too thin managing five different brands and we weren’t delivering the value we aspired to.
Think of it as a name change, nothing more.
Our new grad content, new grad rehab team, new grad focus, new grad investment, and new grad philanthropy will not only remain but will grow stronger, and yes, it will always be free. Just look at our core values: you’ll see we’re still here to “be the champion for the new graduate.” Our company purpose statement will remain “to empower new healthcare professionals to create happy and successful careers.”
The NewGradMedia brand started five years ago and it grew to what it is today thanks to you, our loyal reader. On behalf of our entire team, I want to give you a truly authentic thank you from the bottom of my heart. Welcome to the next phase of our evolution—I know you’re going to absolutely love what we have planned!
