What unique types of career-related events would attract college students? Ideas anyone? (Not career fairs)?
I work for a university and am trying to come up with some new programs/events to engage college students. We have a small budget ( $200-2000 or so) for each event. I just need some ideas of new and exciting things to do. One of the things we do now is a business clothes donation and sale/ fashion show.
How about a Networking Social? This way both college students and employers can discuss the particulars of their companies without the formality of college fairs. It is also a way college students can learn networking skills important in having careers. You can have light food, drinks and maybe use a group from the university to provide light entertainment for the event.
