The Washington Post Magazine had an interesting article yesterday about college recruiting. The article certainly over-generalizes the current college recruiting environment (not all graduating students are getting this treatment, and not all employers are applying it). What it does show however what some top-end companies/government agencies are doing even in a softening economy, as well as what things are important to the current generation of graduates.

A worthy read if you are doing any college recruiting today.

Hey Ben...
I find it interesting that some recruiting accountability is brought about by social networks... Companies are fearing a bad rap on myspace or facebook, so they will treat potential placements or interns better than ever before...
great article; thanks for sharing...

Absolutely true Rayanne. One bad internship experience has an impact many times greater than 10 good internship experiences. That effect actually goes back pre-online social networking. The effect was multiplied significantly thanks to Web 2.0 Social Networking. Thanks for the comment!
