College Recruiting Bootcamp: How to Hire Diverse STEM Students and Grads

Verizon headquarters in Basking Ridge, NJIs your organization struggling with its efforts to recruit and retain diverse, college and university recent graduates and students for your science, technology, engineering, and math roles? Almost every organization struggles to recruit and retain these highly sought after STEM candidates yet many of these same organizations are seeing real success in a number of areas.

Join your fellow university relations, talent acquisition, and other human resource leaders from corporate, non-profit, and government organizations the afternoon of Monday, May 18th at the headquarters of Verizon for a highly interactive, collegial, and informative moderator-led discussion on the best practices for recruiting and retaining diverse STEM candidates from colleges and universities.
