Learn From the Best: University Recruiting Within the Federal Government

Local, regional, and national recruiting conferences are great sources of learning for the vast majority of staffing leaders. To date, none have done a thorough job of focusing on the needs of federal government staffing leaders who are involved in recruiting college students for internships and recent graduates for entry-level jobs and other career opportunities.

That's about to change. On Friday, April 1, 2011, The George Washington University Career Center, college job board CollegeRecruiter.com, and HR solutions provider RECSOLU are teaming up to host a half day, non-profit, no selling, purely educational event. All of the attendees and presenters will be federal government recruiters, human resource managers, hiring managers, and other staffing leaders.

To ensure maximum content delivery, we’ll utilize the TedX format of 18 minute presentations followed by 12 minutes of networking breaks. This will ensure a fast moving program with a large number of highly relevant presentations along with ample time for peer-to-peer networking among attendees.

The day will start at 8:00am with registration and a complimentary continental breakfast. But don't thank the sponsors for the breakfast as there aren't any -- no sales! And also don't thank the organizers as all of the money we collect from the registration fees will be used to cover the cost of renting the room and providing food and beverages through the program.

Agenda, Topics, and Presenters Are:

  • Registration and complimentary continental breakfast - 8:00am
  • Welcome from GWU Career Center, CollegeRecruiter.com, and RECSOLU - 8:18am
  • TheNew Internship Program and New Graduates Program – Keynote - Matt Collier, Office of Personnel Management - 8:30am
