College Recruiter sponsoring premiere event in Europe for university relations leaders

Brussels, BelgiumCollege Recruiter has two primary types of users: candidates who are searching for great careers and the employers who recruit them. One way that we give back to the recruiting community is by regularly sharing our knowledge and trying our best to advance the conversations through our blog, videos, and social media. Another way is through conferences such as the dozen or so College Recruiting Bootcamp events we’ve organized to-date.

A third way that give back to the recruiting community is through our active participation in conferences organized by partners. This weekend, for example, chief executive officer Faith Rothberg will moderate a panel at TAtech (the Association for Talent Acquisition Solutions) in Orlando about how job boards can and should prevent fraud including bogus jobs which are posted for a number of reasons, one of which is identity theft. On Monday, I’ll deliver a presentation at SHRM Talent Management in Orlando about how talent acquisition leaders can use metrics to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their departments but also to get that “seat at the table” that so many crave but haven’t been able to attain because the information they share with their C-level leaders has been tactical and not strategic. About a week later I’ll be in D.C. for TalentBlend 2016. College Recruiter is a sponsor and I’m moderating a panel discussion with Alton Fox of Lockheed Martin and Temeka Thompson of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission during which we’ll talk about how leading organizations recruit students and recent graduates through off-campus channels including interactive recruitment media such as College Recruiter.

Pretty much all of the above has a U.S. focus but we’re well aware that there’s a big, beautiful world outside of our borders. Indeed, most of our Fortune 1,000 and even federal government clients have hiring needs around the world and we’re increasingly being called upon to help them with those needs. Today, for example, we’re working on a proposal for a federal government agency that has significant hiring needs for people who are U.S. citizens, live or are willing to live abroad, have college degrees, and speak both English and Spanish. These multinational projects are challenging yet a lot of fun and have led us to engage with organizations in other countries whose missions include helping students and recent graduates find great careers. An example is Gradcore, a U.K.-based organization run by my friend, Martin Edmondson. I delivered the keynote presentation at their annual conference a couple of years ago and in May we are sponsoring and helping to organize their GEC Europe conference.  (more…)

Earlier this year College Recruiter partnered with European-based Gradcore, Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR), and European Association for International Education (EMPLOI) to create the Graduate Employment Conference Europe (GEC Europe). We’re now only three weeks away from the December 2nd and 3rd conference.

The conference is bringing together a remarkable group of senior university relations leaders, talent acquisition heads, graduate recruiters, and university employability leaders from at least 14 countries and the continents of Europe, North America, and Asia. We’ll gather at The Hotel Leopold the evening of Wednesday, December 2nd for a wonderful dinner and then at the British Ambassador’s residence on Thursday, December 3rd for two keynotes and a panel discussion in the morning and then break-out sessions in the afternoon.
