Recruiters Roundtable -
Your sponsorship and registration in the 45th Annual International Conference includes an opportunity to participate in the first Annual Recruiters Roundtable. This session will bring together recruiters from around the country to discuss industry best practices, share ideas and hear directly from students and recent alumni on the overall recruiting process. Earlier this year, GIS conducted a
survey that was shared with more than 4,000 students and recent alumni to determine what participants are looking for in an employer, which strategies companies have employed that work to get a potential employee's attention, as well as to gain an understanding of the influences that contribute to the decision to work for their employer of choice.
There are many ways that your company can participate. Click "Sponsorship Opportunities" below to explore!
Don't miss the chance to meet with current GIS students, as well as connect with industry and alumni. There are still opportunities left to attend and participate.
