Wabash, through the Schroeder Center for Career Development, is hosting its first-ever Recruiting College Talent Summit. This program is designed to help HR teams connect better with millennials…and in doing so, Wabash men! Here’s the information fro our friends in Career Services:
This fall Career Services is pleased to announce the first-ever WabashWorks | Recruiting College Talent Summit to be held on September 9. If you’ve ever thought, “We should really get some more Wabash men in here,” now is the perfect time to put that thought into motion. The summit will be a free event, focused on helping recruiters and HR professionals from a wide-variety of fields, levels of experience, and locations better connect with millennials. Featuring keynote speakers Susan S. LaMotte, CEO and founder at exaqueo, and Jason Seiden, CEO at Brand Amper, the event is sure to be fun and informative. LaMotte and Seiden will also offer their expertise on employer branding, recruiting technology, and social media use.
In addition to sharing best practices, the event aims to introduce recruiters who may not be familiar with Wabash College to our unique culture and dedicated students. We will offer Sphinx Club-led tours of campus to highlight our traditions and wrap up the day with a networking dinner. Over dinner, which will be held in the brand new Center for Innovation, Business, and Entrepreneurship HQ in downtown Crawfordsville, attendees will also have the opportunity to network with students – possibly identifying some early candidates – and network with other professionals.
For alumni, it will be the perfect way to introduce the recruiters or HR professionals at your organization to your alma mater – show them what makes Wabash so special and why they should want to hire Wabash talent. Additional information and registration can be found on the event page at wabash.edu/careers/recruiters/summit. Career Services invites all alumni to attend, share the invitation with the recruiters at your organizations, and share with anyone else in your network who you think can offer excellent opportunities for Wabash men.
The Schroeder Center for Career Development staff welcomes questions from anyone who may be interested, as well as introductions to others in your network. We challenge you, Wabash Alumni, to spread the word and help create new opportunities for the Wabash men who will graduate this May.
