Closing Keynote Panel Discussion: How to Attract and Hire Top Emerging Talent

Hire for potential and not experience. Early career talent – someone typically in the workforce for less than a year – will bring enthusiasm and innovation to your organization. But early career talent's digital experience means that they interact with your brand and hiring experience differently from previous generations. This generation of workers expect a consumer-like digital experience.  When they have questions, they want immediate answers and avenues to find those answers. 

Join us for this panel to learn how to leverage early career and University Relations as a talent attraction channel. Panelists will discuss:

  • Tips for using using employer brand and talent marketing technology to attract emerging talent

  • How to communicate a compelling employee value proposition (EVP) to early career candidates

  • Onboarding strategies to retain early talent
