As we hear from many college students that they are "done with virtual info sessions and career fairs" after their first one, I was curious why. So I sat through one hosted by a big company that is rated as one of the top employers for new grads. It was painful.

And it wasn't just me. While attendance started lower than I would have thought given the company's brand name, it declined pretty significantly from about the 5-minute mark. Is it time for recruiters to do something a little different? 

Read my full post on LinkedIn for the rest of the story and why I think this is happening. And to hear about how Cincinnati based organizations and universities are collaborating to address this, join us this Thursday for what should be a really interesting session.
