Bridging the campus and the community

Recruit student talent to grow your business

ABOUT THIS SESSION

Student talent, in the form of interns, project-based resources, or full-time entry-level hires, provides the greatest overall ROI for a company overtime. The average college student or recent grad is educated, enthusiastic, eager to work and less expensive than a more experienced hire. In addition to bringing fresh ideas and expertise, their energy can be infectious for everyone else in the company.

During this session, you will learn about the various resources available to recruit students and the most frequent benefits and experiences from involving them in your business. We will review examples of how companies have used student "Brand Ambassadors" on campus or online through Social Media to drive revenue and/or product awareness. And we will discuss the most common issues and considerations for addressing the Gen Y gap. Students from local colleges will be in attendance to answer any questions you may have about their interests, skills, and how to find and incent them to work for you.
