Livestream of #truCollegeRecruiter NYC conference on Monday

truCollegeRecruiter logoI’m really looking forward to my flight on Sunday from the arctic wonderland of Minneapolis to our #truCollegeRecruiter conferences in the still not very balmy New York on Monday and then the balmier Dallas on Friday.

Both conferences will likely be attended by more than 100 hiring managers, recruiters, and other human resource professionals who want to learn how to better recruit college and university students and recent graduates. Many of the foremost experts in college recruiting will deliver either 20 minute, presentations in the mornings or lead 40 minute, highly interactive discussion tracks in the afternoons.

Questions about the agendas etc.? See http://www.truCollegeRecruiter.com for descriptions of the events, addresses, agendas, topics, presenters, ticketing options, etc. (more…)

Call for presentations for #truCollegeRecruiter conferences

truCR bannerBill Boorman and crew at Globaltru — the organization behind unconferences such as truSanFrancisco and truLondon — has partnered with niche job board CollegeRecruiter.com to create one day events this December in New York City, Atlanta, and Dallas. Do you know of anyone who would like to be a presenter / track leader?

CollegeRecruiter.com is the leading niche job board used by college students searching for internships and recent graduates hunting for entry-level jobs and other career opportunities. We’ve hosted four similar events for recruiters and other human resource professionals: FedCollege events located in Washington, D.C. and one College Recruiting Bootcamp and co-hosted with LinkedIn this past May at their offices in Mountain View, California.

The December events will each pair a morning of our 20 minute, TedX-like presentations with an afternoon of the unconference, moderator-led, discussion-based tracks where the conversations are much more free flowing. Each conference will run from 8am through 5pm. Dates and venues are: (more…)

#truLondon Discussion on How to Recruit College Students and Grads

truLondon logoLast week I had the good fortune to be able to participate in the eighth truLondon unconference. What’s an unconference? Well, if you’ve ever been to a conference for recruiters and other human resource professionals then you can picture the typical presentation room with rows of chairs for attendees and the presenter at the front of the room with her trusty podium, microphone, name badge, and PowerPoint presentation. None of that is anywhere to be seen in an unconference put on by Globaltru.

Bill Boorman, Aki Kakko, and Craig Fisher are the principals of the tru conferences, which are spreading across the globe faster than guppies reproduce and likely are the world’s largest series of recruiting events. Just about every week there’s a tru conference in cities such as Sydney, Dublin, Seattle, New York, Helsinki, Toronto, and London. Last week’s unconference was at the University of Westminster in London and attended by about 150 organizers, track leaders, and attendees. The agenda was thrown out the window before the conference started and we immediately descended into what Bill affectionately refers to as “organized chaos.” There were six classrooms with one being set up as a mini studio for Kelly Services’ The Talent Project from which they broadcast via Internet livestreaming a series of discussions.

Video Interview in U.K. Immediately After Keynote About U.S. Job Market for College Grads

Graduates Yorkshire logoLast week I had the good fortune to fly over to Leeds, England to keynote their annual Graduate Employment Conference. CEO of Graduates Yorkshire and Gradcore Martin Edmondson asked me to deliver a presentation about the U.S. job market for college and university students and recent graduates. Many of the issues we’re facing are similar to those they’re facing. They’re experiencing some of them before we do and we’re experiencing some before they do.

One issue that I knew was important but didn’t realize just how important it would be to them was the high cost of attending just about any type of post-secondary school. The cost of attending a higher education institution is far higher in the U.S. than it is in almost any other country and FAR higher than it is to attend an equivalent school in the United Kingdom. But their recent implementation of austerity measures threatens to put their schools on a similar path to that which our schools have long been on. Without exception, every attendee and organizer with whom I spoke greatly appreciated my urging that they do not follow our lead as we are making higher education impossible for many and soon, I fear, for most. As bad as that would have been decades ago, it is even worse moving forward as we cannot and should not hope to compete against other nations to see which can manufacture goods at the lowest possible cost. Unless we want our citizenry to again have third world standards of living, we need to ensure they have first world standards of work. And that means that we need a workforce which uses the muscles between their ears more than the muscles on their backs. (more…)
