Spring 2023: The State of Campus Recruiting

    With the first quarter of 2023 wrapped up, it’s already time to dig into what’s working, what’s not, and start looking forward to next fall when it comes to early-career recruiting. 

     But this year is different: layoffs continue to reverberate through the tech sector, budgets are being cut, and with so many open roles, many recruiters are being asked to do a lot more with fewer resources.

    This was the topic of this quarter’s edition of The State of Campus Recruiting. Against the backdrop of doing less with more, panelists addressed questions like:

    • So how do you reach more students when your team is lean?
    • What are other teams doing to make every dollar stretch further? 
    • When time is limited and attention is scarce, what do you do to cut through the noise and stand out to high potential talent?

    This session’s panelists include:

    • Debra (Debbie) Mallick Manenté, M.Ed., CPRW. Debra is the Associate Director of Western Connecticut State University's Career Success Center, where she's dedicated to helping students and alumni achieve their career aspirations. With over 20 years of career coaching experience in higher education, she strongly advocates Micro-Internships as an effective way of bridging the gap between talented individuals and potential employers.
    • Alison Keefe, Director of Emerging Talent at medical technology company Smith+Nephew. With decades of experience and development knowledge, she assists Smith+Nephew with setting global expectations, helping candidates find the right opportunities, and developing talent as they mature. Alison has championed Micro-Internships as a tool for full-time hiring.
    • Jeffrey Moss, Founder and CEO of Parker Dewey and moderator of this discussion.
