Schedule

  • Day 1

    Weds, May 25, 2022

  • The campus recruitment landscape is changing rapidly and employers have to adjust quickly to find the talent that their organizations need to thrive. This presentation, based on the recently-released 2022 Campus Recruitment Outlook Report, will uncover key trends and changes in campus recruiting from the employers' perspective.

    Highlights will include:
    • What employers say their key challenges are today
    • The most common channels for reaching students and building their brands
    • Hiring trends and salary changes for 2022
    • Key recruitment and retention benchmarks
    • And much more

    Be among the first to discover the shifting trends on campus and join the discussion with your peers to explore ways to adapt and succeed.

  • With the hectic pace of recruiting, the long time spans between job acceptances and start dates, and the lack of in-person interaction, it's getting harder and harder for employers to create the engagement necessary to retain new hires – or even ensure that they don't renege before their start date. How much of this can be solved through better communications? Does the hiring process need to change to shorten the time gaps?

    The panelists will discuss their recent experiences and share ideas for increasing loyalty, improving retention, and reducing reneges.

  • In the fall of 2020 Scotiabank made the bold move to remove the resume requirement for all campus hiring in Canada. Getting leadership support for this change was just the beginning. Hear from James Spearing, VP Global Talent Acquisition, on the impact of hiring on potential and how his team is taking this approach global and into areas of experienced hiring. Aligned to the Scotiabank purpose, “for every future”, the Bank is proving that even seemingly traditional industries are very progressive and can evolve for tomorrow’s workforce.

  • As more companies prioritize diversity recruitment and gender equity, one thing has become clear: traditional or ‘one size fits all’ approaches to recruitment don’t always work or resonate. As employers seek to attract, engage, and recruit Black, Indigenous and racialized women, reimagining more authentic and intentional approaches is critical. So, what’s working and what’s not working? Hear directly from early-career Black, Indigenous and racialized women who have navigated the candidate experience and learn about their perspectives and recommendations.

  • Competition for talent on campuses in the U.S. today can be best described as "ferocious". Job posting volumes are growing rapidly, many students are receiving multiple offers, interest in recruitment activities is waning, and reports of students reneging on one offer to accept a better one are becoming common.

    To succeed in this market, employers have to become more and more creative; dedicate more resources to the candidate and new hire experience; and, find new ways to reach candidates and develop talent.

    Join us for this panel discussion with employers who "work both sides of the border" to gain a better understanding of the campus talent market in the U.S. and what lessons can be learned and adopted in Canada. This may be a window into the future of campus recruiting in Canada – join us for a peek inside!

  • Day 2

    Thurs, May 26, 2022

  • For the coming months, and maybe even the long term, students and new grads will find themselves with a variety of workplace possibilities. Some may be fully virtual, some fully in person, and some a combination of both. In some cases, policies may change just weeks before (or after) start dates. But "hybrid" can be even more complicated than that with different policies applying to different groups of students, or even individuals, within the same organization.

    How will early talent managers address this? How can campus recruiters respond to questions? What happens when managers have some students working with them in person while others are virtual? What are the impacts of students and new grads working in person if their direct manager wants to remain virtual?

    Clearly the new hire experience is in flux – and that can be a major liability for employer brands and attracting future talent.

    Listen as this panel discusses these and many more questions. Join in and have your own questions addressed as well

  • Many employers aspire to attract and recruit more Indigenous students and graduates into their workforce. But turning that aspiration into action is not straightforward and requires a long term commitment. While many recruitment initiatives can be solved through changes to marketing and outreach efforts, creating an inclusive and welcoming environment where Indigenous employees can thrive requires a more strategic approach.

    Join us as this panel of experts discusses some of the initiatives they have implemented in their organization and shares ideas that others can act on. They'll address questions such as: How can employers of all sizes create a more welcoming environment for Indigenous students? How can employers help improve the supply of Indigenous talent coming through the education system? What initiatives, partnerships, and other organizations are available to support and guide employers? How can smaller organizations get started?

    Listen in on the discussion and submit your questions to the panel so that your organization can be more successful with attracting, engaging, and recruiting Indigenous students.

  • The time for mass marketing to attract young talent is over and micro-influencing is in. Generation Z is influenced by their peers, authentic messaging, and particularly through video.

    At Teck we are leveraging the vast marketing potential of our 250+ students hired each year to attract new talent on campus. Join this session to find out how Teck built an inter-connected student community, empowers students to make a real difference, and has created programs to develop and activate brand ambassadors that drive campus attraction.

  • This panel of your campus recruiting peers will look at the immediate future – the months ahead – and share insights and viewpoints to help everyone plan for what comes next. In a world where we have to be ready to change and adapt our tactics on very short notice, it's helpful to know what plans others are making; what assumptions they are relying on; and, what they are doing to ensure success engaging and hiring tomorrow's talent.

    Join us as the panel discusses questions such as:
    • Will students' work be virtual, in person, or hybrid this summer?
    • How are employers planning for the fall semester? How much do they expect to be on campus vs recruiting virtually?
    • How competitive are employers finding the hiring market now? How does this impact their planning?
    • What do we know so far about 2023?

Have Questions?

Will this just be a series of webinars?

Absolutely not. Certainly, there will be great presentations, hands-on workshops and panel discussions. But there will also be opportunities to network 1:1 via chat and video, collaborate in roundtables, and meet with schools and vendors.

What is the schedule and time commitment?

The program will run May 25 & 26 for a little more than half a day each day: 11:30 – 5:00 PM Eastern time.

But we don’t expect you to participate in every session. You can choose the ones that are most relevant to you, take time to network and meet with other participants, tour the exhibits, jump into a roundtable discussion, and take breaks to stretch your legs.

If you miss a session, you can watch the recording later.

Will there be recordings available?

All registrations include free access to the presentation recordings for 12 months.

Testimonials

Nancy Sammon
"Great two days of programming! I enjoyed hearing from individuals who are in the "campus recruiting trenches". Valuable insights shared and observations made on how they were able to "twist" to a virtual engagement world. As well, what the fall will look like for students, employers and educators."

"As a new-comer to the campus space this conference was exactly what I needed. The experience was like getting a university degree in 2 days in campus recruitment because each session focused on various aspects that are fundamental to understanding and building a solid campus strategy. And you're learning from the very people that you work with regularly in this space. I would definitely attend again next year. You can't get this knowledge anywhere else!"
