On Thursday, August 8, the BT recruiting team held the second annual Campus Recruiting Happy Hour, to officially kickoff the fall campus recruiting season. The firm recognizes that campus recruiting is not only our #1 recruiting source, but it also helps us develop a robust network and pipeline with the universities and the cities they are in, as we continue to grow.
In order to maintain a strong presence at each school and directly involve associates, BT created the Campus Champion role. Campus Champions are select partners and senior managers who assist the Talent Acquisition Coordinator in building and maintaining relationships with key universities, as well as encouraging and enlisting BT associates to participate in campus events.
At the happy hour, each Campus Champion had a designated table for their university which they could decorate in any way they wanted to draw associates in. A competition was held for the best table and, while everyone brought their A-game, Auburn, Florida A&M University, Georgia State and Kennesaw State took home the winning prizes! Besides the chance to network internally, associates were able to sign up for all of the fall events and learn more about opportunities to join the campus recruiting teams for each university.
Highlights of the evening included seeing associates in their college gear, eating homemade Bennett Thrasher cookies decorated by Renee Bledsoe from High Waisted Cookie and a raffle for campus swag!
