They specialize in workforce solutions, best practices in diversity, university relations, internships, interviewing, resume writing, career development and more.

Every month we will share a discussion with members of the Panel of Experts.

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…)

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…)
