    Description: Dr. Gardner will lead a presentation based on employer survey data that includes meaningful insight into the impact of the pandemic on the college labor market, including:

    • Global overview of economy and college hiring trends
    • National and regional hiring summaries by sector
    • Expected changes to starting salaries for entry-level hire
    • Gaps in student skills specific to virtual recruiting and interviews
    • Quantity of interviews required to achieve hiring goals
    • Average interviews per hire by industry and company size
    • Employer perceptions of student preparation and skills specific to virtual recruiting and interviewing
    • Expected tenure of COVID-era hires and competition for talent


    Presenter: Mary Scott

    Managing Partner, Scott Resource Group


    DescriptionOne of the few things we know for certain is that this past semester of early talent recruiting didn’t play out as employers and career centers envisioned just a few months earlier.  With all the challenges and moving parts that hybrid recruiting presented – it’s clear that most organizations are planning for more of the same for early 2022.  


    Mary Scott, managing consultant at Scott Resource Group, will present research findings from her recent student surveys – along with employer and career center interviews – that provide analysis of the current state, and includes some clues as to where the profession is heading. This is one of the few places we can review data provided directly from the student candidates, providing a full picture of where recruiting strategies may be falling short. 


    Reaction Panel: Panelists include GE, PepsiCo and Enterprise Holdings.
