Beyond the Traditional: Innovative Models for Identifying Talent

Friday | June 22 | 2012 | 1:00 pm - 2:15 PM
Chicago IX, 5th Floor

This session will provide a fresh perspective on candidate assessment processes  that go beyond the usual application essays, recommendation letters, and offcial admissions interviews. The panelists’  schools are using inventive techniques such as multiple mini-interviews, PowerPoint presentations, and group interviewing. They will share why they decided to make changes in their admissions processes, what information these new methods provide, and the results they’ve obtained. The panel’s moderator will provide his perspectives on corporate recruiting and how assessing talent in admissions and calibrating the right competencies can prove critical to successful placement and career management.
