Most organizations hire students and grads the same way they did decades ago. But that is changing.

Steven Rothberg, President and Founder of College Recruiter, will share his deep insight and his advice for leaders in UR and TA to improve the effectiveness of their university relations programs.

His presentation will cover:

- How slow evolution of the college recruiter is impacted by employer size, type of role, schools and majors and number of jobs to fill
- Valid, invalid and corrupt reasons many organizations stick to decades-old processes
- How employers should hire students and recent graduates of all colleges and universities
- Why it’s important to praise employers who are effectively hiring the best and brightest candidates, based on work performance rather than pedigree

About a decade ago, employers started saying that their cost-per-hire through on-campus recruiting was about 10 times what it cost them to hire online by advertising on job boards, searching resume banks or networking through social media sites.

Finally, the conversation moved to employers’ outcomes data about two years ago, and employers learned that when they examined their top performers as related to source of hire, the students hired on campus actually performed worse than those hired online. The data shows a poor, or even inverse, correlation between the quality of the candidate’s school and how well their major aligns with the job.
