How is this accomplished? What are organizations recognized as being leaders within the college recruiting industry doing? What are the expectations of those you are recruiting? What can you do to ensure you attract, develop and retain the talent  YOU need?

The College Recruiting Best Practices Academy is a one-day program designed to help employers build a win-win full-cycle college recruiting program. With content derived from detailed industry research, and gathering of best practices and first-hand practical experience, you will leave this program with a newfound approach to establishing the very best college recruiting strategy possible.

The presentation includes data and best practices compiled as a result of extensive efforts to identify and process vast amounts of industry-related information and best practices. This includes data derived from Intern Bridge proprietary research and 40,000+ survey respondents. You will also benefit from the first-hand experiences of someone that has built college recruiting strategies with hundreds of Fortune 500, small to medium sized organizations as well as government entities  throughout the United States.
