Subject line: Campus Recruiting Forum – Waterloo, April 18th and 19th

Hi ________

I am writing to express my sincere interest in attending this year’s Campus Recruiting Forum held in Waterloo, Ontario on April 18th and 19th, 2018.

Campus Recruiting Forum is a comprehensive two-day educational training that focuses on equipping professionals involved in attracting, engaging and recruiting students with unique networking opportunities and skills that will allow me to:

– Fine tune our strategy to attract top students
– Evaluate and select target schools
– Position our Employee Value Proposition for campus
– Build a stronger business case to gain more resources
– Build and develop our brand on campus
– Optimize co-op and internship programs
– And much more

All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the program.

Below is the agenda for this two day conference. I think we can agree that gaining insight from experienced campus recruiting professionals on these topics would be valuable as we continue to develop strategies and further develop our processes.

Day one of the conference will cover a range of relevant topics including:

• Strategic Planning
• Building Your Business Case
• Employer Branding and Your EVP
• Campus Relations and Building Your Presence
• Leadership/Rotational Programs
• Co-op & Internships
• Target School Selection

Day 2 will explore the following topics:

• Tearing up the rule book, a new approach to hiring the best on campus
• What are they thinking? What today’s students want from their careers
• Recruiting the best on campus: What really works
• Best practices in rotational leadership development programs
• Student Panel – we will learn what students from multiple disciplines are expecting from employers
• Recruiting in the toughest campus markets: Employer Panel Discussion
• More to be announced closer to the date

And as you can see from this list of past attendees, all very reputable companies with successful early career development programs attend this conference. I believe that having a unique opportunity to network with them will prove to be very beneficial in my professional growth within the company.

The cost for this two day conference is $1095, plus travel and lodging.

Let me know your thoughts and if I can provide you with any additional information that might aid in making a decision.

Thank you!
