Employer Engagement: The New Imperative For Career Center Success

Let’s face it, preparing students for the world of work is only half of the battle you face! 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 career services on college campuses continuing to evolve, more than ever before, this area is being seen as more of an integral campus partner directly related to student success. That success is often judged by just one metric: how many students have jobs when they graduate.

Building a strategic and effective employer attraction program for your college or university is critical to the vitality of the career services function and is a must to meet the growing demand of students (and parents who are often paying at least part of the bill.)

If you want to develop or enhance your employer relations program in order to attract employers to your campus and implement an amazing customer service philosophy that keeps employers coming back each semester, then join us for this unique and one-of-a-kind learning and sharing opportunity.

Please join us for this three-part web-series on October 12th, 19th & 26th at 1:00pm ET (Noon CT, 11am MT, 10am PT)

Register today and you will learn how to…

  • Develop a clear and compelling message that attracts employers to your campus.
  • Recruit new employer partners, who return to your campus each semester.
  • Implement an amazing customer service philosophy that keeps employers returning each semester.
  • Measure success in terms of increasing the number of your students who have jobs upon graduation.
  • Make your center a conduit for your entire campus in regards to employer engagement.

These insights are only a small sample of what you’ll find in this workshop.  If you would like to learn more about this program before registering please send us an email at info@internbridge.com .
