Engaging Employers to Increase Hiring on Your Campus
Employers have many options when choosing where and how to hire. In a process that is never as objective or as measured as it may seem, there is a lot that you can do to get their attention and ensure that they give your students their close consideration. Employers are aware that there are highly talented candidates on every campus; therefore, how you connect with them and the customer service you deliver can have a dramatic impact on their hiring decisions. But you have to get their attention first.
In this highly interactive workshop, you will:
- Gain insights into the “behind the scenes” thinking and processes that employers use when planning their hiring on campus
- Participate in discussions about employer behaviours and what you can do to engage them more effectively
- Learn about the latest research into students’ career interests and decisions so that you can be well prepared to provide employers with the most useful insights to help them be more effective as they try to attract and connect with your students
If you are investing energy in attracting more employers to hire your students, don’t miss this workshop.
