#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.

Mark Mehler and Gerry Crispin of CareerXroads just released their Annual Sources of Hire (SOH) Study, which is one of the most referenced and authoritative snapshots of how large, highly-competitive, high-profile firms define and measure the talent supply chain.

The SOH report is a glimpse of where employees – actual hires – were found. This data is important to organizations as they look to find and hire new employees. It is equally important to job candidates as they seek the most effective channels to a new job.

Interesting findings from this year’s study include: (more…)

College Grad Hiring Up 9.5%

College Grad Hiring 2007-12Employers plan to hire 9.5 percent more new graduates in 2011-12 than they did in 2010-11. In comparison, in the same survey a year ago by National Association of Colleges and Employers, employers anticipated double-digit hiring increases.

Although the overall increase isn’t as high the increases projected last year, other factors indicate a positive job market for the current class. For example, slightly more than half of respondents have plans to increase their individual number of hires from last year. This follows a positive trend illustrated in Figure 2, where the percentage of employers planning to increase their number of hires continues to grow, while the percentage with plans to decrease their number of hires continues to shrink. Thus, it appears that college hiring is moving in the right direction. (more…)
