Recruiting Trends 2016

RECRUITING TRENDS 2016: THE Future is NOW: ME-llenials and the Entrepreneurial Spirit!!

The University of Tampa’s Office of Career Services and event partner, University of South Florida Career Services, will be hosting the Eighth Annual Recruiting Trends Program. Back by popular demand, Phil Gardner, director of the Collegiate Employment Research Institute (CERI) at Michigan State University, will share the latest data from the recently released recruiting trends survey. Participants will get a firsthand look at the most recent recruiting trends influencing the college labor market, as reported by data collected from many local and national employers. Gardner and CERI are nationally recognized for their research on the transition from college to work, employment readiness of college graduates and assessment of learning in the workplace.

Closing the program, John Hill, former Higher Education Evangelist at LinkedIn, now the Network catalyst for Techstars, will share his Magical Rhetorical Ride around LinkedIn, millennial entrepreneurs, talent and how it's all intertwined. Storytelling, anecdotes and hard facts will combine to showcase how tools, talent and timing are leading to an incredible change in how young talent navigates professional pathways. Learn how LinkedIn has become the road map, an infusion of entrepreneurial thought process in the classroom, the workforce and cities has changed skill sets and how recruitment of this talent is a short-term play.
