How to Build and Enhance an Innovative Global University Relations Program

Posted July 07, 2015 by

The world is becoming a smaller place. More and more organizations are global in nature, with thousands, tens of thousands, and even hundreds of thousands of employees spread around the world. How do the world’s leading organizations manage their hiring of college and university students and recent graduates? Some create silos where the recruiting for each country is separate from the others, but the trend is to integrate. Integration creates its own challenges as each country has its own legal requirements, cultural norms, and other challenges.

This video is an excerpt of a one-hour panel discussion at the National Association of Colleges and Employers 2015 annual conference in Anaheim, California.

Listen into this insightful and energetic discussion on how three of the world’s most innovative employers of college and university students and recent graduates created and continually enhance their global university relations programs.

• Andrea McEwen-Henderson, National Account Manager for College Recruiter

• Dan Black, America’s Director of Recruiting for EY
• Marci Taylor, Senior Staffing Manager, Global Talent Acquisition for Applied Materials
• Stephanie Pallante, Assistant Vice President, Global College Recruiting for ARAMARK

Topics Discussed:
• What goals and strategies does your organization have? For example, if your headquarters is in the U.S. and you are recruiting in China, your programs should look identical.
• There can be difficulties with trying to keep consistency, many nuances occur and are hard to tackle, as well as cultural differences.
• What kind of local structure do you find is most successful for a local program?
