Dear [NAME HERE],
I am writing to express my strong interest in attending this year’s Campus Recruiting Forum being held in San Francisco, CA on November 28th and 29th or in Chicago, IL on December 6th and 8th.
As the market to hire student and new grad talent becomes increasingly competitive, it is important that we stay on top of changing talent acquisition best practices on campus.
Many of our recruitment competitors attend this program regularly; if we aren’t there we may risk falling behind in our approach and tactics.
This Forum will give me access to the experiences and best practices of many top employers; the latest research regarding acquiring young talent; and, access to a network other employers and colleges that we can learn from.
The Campus Recruiting Forum is a comprehensive two-day educational program that focuses on equipping professionals involved in attracting, engaging and recruiting students with skills that will allow us to:
- Fine tune our strategy to attract top students
- Evaluate and select target schools
- Position our Employee Value Proposition for campus
- Build a stronger business case to gain more resources
- Build and develop our brand on campus
- Optimize our internship programs
Below is the brief agenda for this two-day conference. I think we can agree that gaining insight from experienced campus recruiting professionals on these topics would be valuable as we continue to develop strategies and further develop our processes and brand on campus.
This conference will cover a range of relevant topics including:
- Strategic Planning
- Building Your Business Case
- Employer Branding and Your EVP
- Campus Relations and Building Your Presence
- Understanding Today’s Students
- Internship Best Practices
- Target School Selection
- How Students Are Responding to the Latest Recruitment Technologies
- Best Practices in Campus Recruiting: Employer Panel
- And more topics that will be announced closer to the event date
As you can see from this list of past attendees, a very wide variety of organizations and industries are represented. I believe that having a unique opportunity to network with these kinds of organizations will prove to be very beneficial in my professional growth within the company.
