Though it may not always be recognized as such, campus recruitment should be an invaluable strategic asset to your organization. This may not be immediately apparent to hiring managers, divisional heads, or even senior leadership. But without ensuring strategic alignment and effectively communicating with these and other stakeholders, student hiring (and the people who manage the process) may be undervalued and therefore limited in its impact.
In this session, we'll explore how campus recruiters can think of themselves as key strategic players within their organizations’ overall talent strategy and expand their role and influence across the business. Join the discussion as we look at ways to strengthen the position campus recruitment and create opportunities for long-term growth for professionals in this space.
