The Impact of the Hybrid Recruiting Experience: Through the Students' Lens

In-person career fairs and campus recruiting events have returned in full force, despite predictions that ‘the pandemic would accelerate the inevitable transition to virtual engagement which was well underway before COVID’. Turns out that quite to the contrary, the past three years have underscored the value of face-to-face ‘in real life’ interaction, and comparative attendance data at campus versus digital events document how students [and many employers] ‘voted with their feet’.
