Let’s face it… preparing students for the world of work is only half the battle! The other is building strategic and meaningful relationships with employer partners to provide opportunities for students to make the transition to the world-of-work. 

With the role of college career services continuing to evolve, now, more than ever, this area is viewed as a more integral partner impacting student success. Often, that success is judged by one metric: the number of students with a job at graduation.  Building a strategic and effective employer attraction program  is critical to the vitality of the career services function and is essential in meeting the increasing expectations of students (and parents who often pay a portion, if not all, of the bill.)  Join us for this one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn how to enhance your employer relations program to attract employers and keep them returning each semester with an exemplary customer service approach.
Please join us for this three-part web-series on October 15th, 22nd & 29th at 2:00pm ET (1pm CT, Noon MT, 11am PT)
