Resilience in the Job Search

In a culture that thrives on instant gratification, how do we prepare students and prospective candidates for the COVID-19 reality that they may not get the job of their dreams upon graduation, or they may not get a job right away? Instead, it may take them months to secure a position. At times, they will get rejected and be discouraged. When they land the job, they may even experience disappointment early on. These new, young professionals will face difficulties with their job search, but how will they respond? Will they bounce back, or will they fall under the weight of their expectations and potential entitlement? The key to a successful job search is being properly prepared in resilience. Now more than ever, educating students and prospective candidates on resilience must become a priority not only to career development professionals but employers also. By sharing personal testimonies, research findings, and practical resilience strategies, workshop attendees will have a better understanding of what resilience is and how to implement techniques into their Career Centers and workplaces

12 Tips for Hiring More Diverse College Students

On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, was killed by the Minneapolis Police Department only miles from my home in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His crime? Allegedly using a counterfeit bill, although if he was unaware that the bill was counterfeit then he didn’t even commit a crime. Since Floyd’s killing, most of the large corporations in the country have placed greater emphasis on their recruitment and retention of diverse college students and recent graduates. They’re trying to make their workplaces more equitable and inclusive, and that’s all great. Some question whether these actions are merely “feel good” and therefore foolish, but the data shows very, very good reasons for employers to improve their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices. Studies show:

  • Companies with diverse management teams have 19% higher revenues.
  • Diverse companies are 1.7 times more likely to be innovation leaders in their market segments.
  • 67% of job seekers say diversity is an important factor when considering a company.
  • 85% of CEOs say that having a diverse workforce improved their bottom lines.

Given that it is good for business to recruit more diverse college students, together we will look at 12 ways to make that happen.

Presenter:

Steven Rothberg, President, College Recruiter

Steven Rothberg is the President and Founder of College Recruiter, which believes that every student and recent graduate deserves a great career.
