Hire Learnings October 6, 2020

Though our reading this past week includes various perspectives on what not to do, each offers considerations on what talent professionals can do to attract, assess, and retain the right talent.

Additionally, we share ways to ensure your switch to remote recruiting stays on track. While many had high hopes that virtual career fairs and info sessions would support their recruiting needs, engagement is down considerably as “Zoom fatigue” sets in and students only attend sessions for roles they’re already interested in. 

Later this week, we’ll also be checking in with more companies, colleges, and organizations to learn how employers are hitting their diversity and other hiring goals in the midst of the pandemic. Be sure to join us live for this event.
