COVID-19: Summer Internships & Early Career Recruiting
The current COVID-19 crisis has come with many difficult decisions on how we handle our current workforce. But what about those who haven't joined the workforce yet? Many companies began selecting their 2020 class of interns and new graduate talent months ago and are struggling with how to handle things in the current climate. How can we provide the best experience for individuals that represent the future of our company, with the knowledge that the typical programs will have to be tremendously altered or cancelled?
Join Jennifer Tracy, Vice President of Recruiting Solutions at Spectrum, Carter Bradley, Founder & Partner at Ivy Research Council, and TALK's own Lori Murin, as we explore our options on how to best accommodate 2020 interns and graduates. About the Panelists:
