Recruiting Trends 2015


The University of Tampa’s Office of Career Services and event partner, University of South Florida Career Services, will be hosting the 7th 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 in which many of you have participated. Following Gardner’s session, local leaders will share their insight on how company culture impacts their overall success with recruiting, engaging and retaining today’s generation of talent. Participants will get a first-hand 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, a panel of local leaders from a variety of industries will share their expertise and vision for their organization as it relates to company culture. This interactive discussion will delve into what makes a successful culture tick and how it impacts your overall success with recruiting, engaging, retaining and managing your company’s biggest asset - the people.
