LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network on the Internet, and CollegeRecruiter.com, the leading niche job board for college students searching for internships and recent graduates hunting for entry-level jobs and other career opportunities, co-hosted their second annual college recruiting conference on Monday, May 5th at LinkedIn’s corporate headquarters in Mountain View, California.
Are you passionate about attracting the next generation of talent to your organization? If so, you wouldn’t have wanted to miss this chance to mingle with and learn from 200 of your peers who felt EXACTLY the same way. This one-day event right in the heart of Silicon Valley brought together the best and brightest hiring managers, college relations professionals, and other human resource leaders for a day of fast-paced learning, networking, and brainstorming.
As was the case for our 2013 College Recruiting Bootcamp, there was absolutely no selling of any kind during the opening keynote, morning presentations, and afternoon panel discussions. There was no exhibit hall and no sponsors. With the exception of the luncheon keynote by LinkedIn, all presenters and attendees were corporate or government recruiting and human resource professionals. No third party recruiters. No career service office professionals. No vendors. Just your peers. Continue Reading

With college seniors around the nation returning to their respective campuses following spring break recess, many will undoubtedly turn their attention to their impending graduation and the search for their first post-collegiate job. A new analysis of the entry-level job market estimates that while the job market continues to strengthen for college graduates, the environment remains highly competitive, which may force some to pursue unexpected career paths.
In its annual college graduate job-market outlook, global outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. says this year’s crop of 1.8 million bachelor’s degree recipients will be able to take advantage of the 36 consecutive months of private-sector employment growth that has occurred since the jobs recovery began in earnest in March 2010.

Challenger, chief executive officer of Challenger, Gray & Christmas. Continue Reading

Interesting findings from this year’s study include: Continue Reading
