College Recruiting: Changing the Model

The last couple days I came across two perspectives on the same topic. First, comments from Jonathan Hilley at the TAG blog discussing the need to change the college Career Services model. I could not agree more. Changes need to be made to a much antiquated approach of helping college graduates. Jonathan mentions Sheila Curran at Curran Career Consulting who advocates the same need for change. Second, there’s this post from Laura Gargolinski via her post on the ERE Community Blog. Laura is asks what employers are doing to demonstrate that even entry-level jobs are providing meaningful work. She makes her case for what employers should be considering.  Each of these posts reminds anyone involved in college recruiting that the environment is constantly changing. Considering the perspectives of every stakeholder is essential in providing value-added services.
