How Technology Is Driving the Future of College Recruiting – Part 1

“There’s this thing called the Internet.” And in 1995, with that remark, a career service office director forever changed the future of the business out of which College Recruiter would emerge.

The clock was ticking on the 1950’s era products and approach of students picking up magazines, pulling annual reports from filing cabinets, and even sitting across a table in an on-campus interview room. Today, some 20 years later, it is hard for the recent grads and students we serve to relate to a time when all college recruiting was very physical, very local, and very expensive. What will tomorrow bring and how will those changes impact career services, employers, and job seekers?

One of the advantages that I have found, in my own pursuit of my doctorate degree, is the convenience of working while attending school and the synergistic way that the two compliment each other.

Believe me, that offers many opportunities to not only observe business but living in the center of it. Going back to the reference of the synergy between working and attending a university, the graduate work that I was doing also benefitted the business. And, the business work (career) benefitted the graduate work. (more…)
