The Distance Between Reality and Expectation: What Career Services and Graduate Employers Overlook—and How to Do Better

2020 has been quite a year. In just two months, we experienced two years worth of transformation, showing that, more than ever, the job market changes at lightning pace. As such, career services is falling short at preparing graduates for the ongoing journey of their careers, rather than the destination of their first role. Equally, graduate employers set expectations that not only exceed possibility, but also demonstrate a lack of understanding in the potential of these new hires. In this talk, you'll learn about the value in meeting in the middle to realize graduates' full potential—and how to do it effectively.

The rapid shift to virtual recruiting is causing employers and universities to make changes in just a few months that may have taken a few years in “normal” times. With budgets tight and few events likely on campuses this fall, employers need a digital-first way to find qualified talent, create meaningful relationships, field applicants, screen candidates, and hire the best. You will walk away with some new strategies for successful fall recruiting — whether campuses are open or not.

The speakers will also shed light on what students want, what employers need, and what universities have planned for fall, culled from the Handshake community of 17 million students at over 1,000 universities and the 500,000+ employers recruiting them. Come learn what all 500 of the Fortune 500 already knows — the future of recruiting is authentic, engaging and open to all.
