What people are talking about at NACE12

I’ve been listening to members talk about some fantastic programs, best practices, tips and innovations. Here are a few highlights:

Kevin Gaw at Georgia State University noted the red flags to identifying fraudulent job postings. Beware of emails or URLs that are similar but, not quite like a well-known company’s, phone numbers and emails that don’t work and offers that are too good to be true.

Vanessa Strauss explained that the FDIC has cut their offer time down to about a week making the hiring process much easier for students.

Louise Carrese from the Rochester Institute of Technology and Bob Raybits from Northrop Grumman shared the importance of carefully selecting advisory board members based on their individual ability to contribute to that particular board’s mission.

Nancy Holland with DirectEmployers talked about optimizing job postings for SEO. Research the words candidates use to search for your company, the position or industry and use those key words in the posting to get more quality applicants.

Niki Perkins with Baker College discussed how she has set up a LinkedIn Group for alumni and leveraged the jobs tab within the group to imbed pertinent job feeds.

There are so many great conversations going on at NACE12. Catch up on more great insights – search Twitter for #NACE12.
