Spotlight for Recruiting Professionals
July 18, 2012
The NACE Foundation is developing professional standards that will encompass practices for a sound program, necessary experiences for managers and recruiters, and ways to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the university relations and recruiting function. The standards will be supported with quantifiable metrics and qualitative measures to enable UR professionals to gauge whether a standard has been met and to what degree.
Heading the project is Jeff Goodman, independent human capital strategy consultant, and former senior manager of university relations at Raytheon. NACE members will be heavily involved in each phase of the project. Members will have the opportunity to provide their input and feedback through surveys and interviews, and small teams of members will assist Goodman at various points in the development and review process. In addition, the membership will have the opportunity to review and comment on the standards before they are finalized and distributed to the membership in July 2013.
• First Survey: The project will include four surveys. The first is scheduled to be distributed to employer members via e-mail in the next few weeks.
• Goodman is currently seeking employer members to assist in the project by serving on teams; if you are interested, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
