Hire Expectations: What You Should Know About the Job Market When Recruiting Your Next Class

The more you know about the job market, employer expectations and differences in candidates’ motivations based on their work experience, the better equipped you are to craft messages, advise prospects, and select candidates during the recruiting and admissions process.

This webinar shared insights from the latest GMAC data about the job market and hiring trends for MBAs and Master’s degree-holders, as well as survey results showing the career choices of today’s prospective students and expectations of employers. 

The session also offered a sneak peek at prospective students’ aspirations, motivations, and career plans based on survey responses in the first six months of prospective student survey data in 2011 from the GMAC mba.com Prospective Students Survey.
