“Learn, Connect and Collaborate” is the theme for CACEE National Conference 2016, and it captures perfectly our current priorities. The way you recruit young talent is undergoing a revolution, student candidates are challenged to keep up with the changes and your partners in campus career offices offer you the best access to help them along. In this time of rapid change, you need a network that shares information and works together to find the way forward. We all need to Learn, Connect and Collaborate.

New technologies are transforming the recruiting tactics you use, reinventing current practice, and the new paradigm is still developing. Not that long ago, you had to go to campus to reach students but in the era of social media, big data and applicant tracking systems you have options. For you and for the students you are seeking the rules are changing; new protocols are emerging.

It’s crucial that students learn the new rules if they are to become candidates. Your allies on campus are the career educators who attend CACEE National Conference every year. It’s the best opportunity to come together – to collaborate - and deal with the changes.

With more than thirty breakout sessions and three keynote sessions, employer delegates have ample opportunity to learn from each other, from outside experts, and from other employers. Helping new grads make the transition to the workforce is a complex undertaking – it works best when we work together.

CACEE National Conferences are all about connections; making new ones, reviving old ones, energizing the ones that make our daily work possible. Connections are critical to recruiters. You connect your organization to educators and students, providing the path for them to connect with each other.

That network is ever changing and you’ll get ample opportunity to get caught up with the changes. Social activities, networking suites, and meal times offer plenty of chances to connect with fellow delegates.

CACEE National Conference provides the connections that keep your network flowing.
