Employer Panel: Do Our Post-Secondaries Graduate Career-Ready Talent?
2:30 - 3:15
We know that the majority of students attend university or college to improve their career prospects. The inherent promise is that our graduates will have more choice, a more fulfilling career, and higher income.
And while many individuals and organizations influence the curriculum at our institutions, we rarely hear from the talent acquisition professionals who engage with students, interview them, and ultimately help them launch their careers.
Join us for this panel of campus recruiting professionals from diverse organizations that are involved directly in hiring your students and graduates. We'll address questions such as:
What are the top skills they seek?
Which skills are the most elusive?
Do some schools (despite having similar programs) develop grads that are more career-ready than others?
How can colleges and universities help address the DEI challenges faced by employers?
What is missing from the education/industry partnership?
