How to Hire and Retain Diverse, STEM, Recent College Graduates and Students — Part 1 of 3

The College Recruiting Bootcamp, hosted by Verizon and organized by College Recruiter took place on May 18th at the Verizon headquarters in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. Moderator Andrea McEwen-Henderson, National Account Manager from College Recruiter, introduced the conference and led the discussion.

Judith Rudge, Senior Manager from Verizon started off the discussion with a statement explaining the need for change. Judith said that it is important to learn the power of habits and be able to change them to incorporate a more diverse population in their organization. After a while, your habits turn into automatic functions. You see problems with the diversity of organizations that are unwilling to change the way they contact future employees. According to Judith, there are less women, African Americans, and Hispanics graduating with technical careers and so we have to change our habits in order to reach the next level of recruiting.
