College Recruiting Bootcamp, hosted by CollegeRecruiter.com, heads to LinkedIn HQ

March 18, 2013

Note: this event takes place from 8:00am-1:00pm PT on Monday May 13th; register today.

Leading employers around the world understand that today’s college and university students and recent graduates are tomorrow’s leaders. Some employers look at interns and recent grads as cheap labor, but the smartest employers regard those candidates as strategic hires.

As the economy continues to recover, it is becoming harder and harder for employers to engage with and hire the right new talent. No longer can an employer simply show up on campus and hire who they want, when they want, and for the wages they want. Instead, to be successful, employers must build their brand and their relationships with students, staff, faculty, and other stakeholders.

To learn how the nation’s leading college and university relations professionals land the best students and grads year after year, join us on Monday, May 13th in Mountain View, CA.  CollegeRecruiter.com, the leading niche job board focused on internships and entry-level jobs for college students and recent graduates, is hosting a half day college recruiting conference at LinkedIn’s corporate headquarters.

The event is designed specifically for corporate and government recruiting and HR professionals. It is not open to third-party recruitment professionals or vendors.
