Employer Relations and Recruitment:
An Essential Part of
Postsecondary Career Services
This monograph is intended for any career services provider seeking a guide for developing employer relations and recruitment services at a postsecondary institution. It serves to inform readers about the changing meaning of "placement" over the years and the role it currently plays in career services. It describes procedures, policies, staffing, technology, evaluation methods, and trends associated with employer relations and recruitment programs based in higher education settings. The monograph, while rich with detailed information, also provides a framework that invites career services staff to employ a "relationship based" approach to providing effective career services to students and employers that can be generalized to a diverse range of educational institutions.
