Recruiting & Retaining Talent in Career Services
The pandemic has been a “black swan” phenomenon that has changed our collective trajectory. Its effects are upending nearly every aspect of the campus—especially the career center. As budgets shift and ways of working evolve, recruiting the right talent to your career office, and retaining the talent, while enabling them to perform at their best to enable students is a key challenge.
In this webinar, Susan Brennan and Alyssa Hammond, experienced career development professionals have a conversation with David Kozhuk of uConnect on the strategies they've used to attract talent to their offices, and simple practices to ensure their team is feeling heard and enabled, leading to retention.
