EMPLOYERS: Register for the HBCU CONNECT Professional Recruitment Event held this October 2017! (5013 hits)

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

HBCU CONNECT is the largest organization of students and alumni from Historically Black Colleges & Universities, anchored by our website, HBCUConnect.com, launched in 1999 as the first online social network for African American professionals.

In the past, we have successfully connected employers with job seekers by way of traditional career fairs with booth space for employers and large numbers of unregistered guests. We received positive feedback on the quality of the candidates in attendance, and also feedback from employers saying that they would like to engage with more candidates and bring additional recruiters in the future. To offer a more engaging experience, we have decided to enhance the recruitment event format for our partner’s participation!

Going forward we are creating a more intimate experience that will attract more candidates, all of which will be screened and registered for the event. All participating employers will have access to all resumes from registered attendees.


THE PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING EVENT MODEL:
HBCU CONNECT team will provide the venue, food, beverages and most importantly, the talent for this exclusive professional networking event.

We will work with your organization to understand the type of talent you would like to interface with at the event (students vs. graduates, majors, career categories, etc.) and we will source this talent to be invited to the event to insure an excellent return on investment for your organization.

We will handle all of the heavy lifting for the event. All your organization will need to do is show up with your recruiters, and we recommend that you come in company branded clothing (T-shirts/Polo shirts).

Each participating employer will have an opportunity to introduce their organization and the recruiters they have with them at the event, such that job seekers can network with matching employers. We will also have an area where employers can place materials for job seekers to take with them as they enter or exit the venue.

We decided to go with this format to give employers guaranteed ROI in the form of face time with hundreds of candidates, pre-event sourcing work to target candidates for our partners, and electronic delivery of the resumes of all candidates in attendance.


Specific Activities that we will handle to insure the success of this recruitment event:
• Secure Appropriate VIP Venue for event
• Coordinate with the designated venue for event execution
• Coordinate and pay for catering for event
• Identify media outlets to utilize for promotion
• Define target audience of ideal attendees
• Set up registration landing page for candidates to sign up and upload resumes for consideration
