75% of Corporate University Relations Teams Have Concerns About the Career Services Department
WOW. I was surprised when I read those study results as well.
With those statistics, even if you think you're doing great, the Employers that you're working with might not agree with you, at least not all of them.
I remember when I was nationally recruiting for a Fortune 100 company and managing an international team. I traveled to a prestigious school for the field I was recruiting for at the time and I was shocked by what I encountered when I interviewed students. This was a Top 5 school and their students were not prepared and were not communicating their value. The Director of the Career Center asked for feedback during a joint meal and another company responded before I could...and he/she never asked me again for my feedback.
I returned back to my employer and told them...
"I don't think there were any quality candidates at this top school and we should seriously re-consider whether we recruit from that school any more."
That university lost out on a relationship that day from an employer that recruited heavily from their school. Was that your university and you might not even know it?
Would you like to avoid losing corporate employers from your campus and increase the number of employers recruiting on your campus?
