A very interesting article was features in Forbes' digital magazine yesterday, which identified four habits of effective networking. One of the ways, as written by Michel Theriault, was of particular interest.

Michel did a great job pointing out one key, but seldom utilized opportunity in to give rather than take.

Despite their lack of experiences, college students have a great deal to offer to employment recruiters, business leaders, and community activists. They have ideas, viewpoints, and their own ways of doing things. When entering networking situations with professionals, whether a couple or many years their elder, students don't need to feel intimidated.

Connect to ideal young talent

Today’s highly competitive employee recruitment world has employers spending considerable time and money to find the ideal candidates to their companies. Their recruitment of college students and young professionals places them on campuses and in communities across the country, where they attend career fairs, present at small workshops, and interface with career-related staff members. As a result, the candidates, career specialists, and recruiters can be overwhelmed with scores of names, some information, and a bit of frustration.

Greek Ladders serves as a liaison between the recruiter and the individual job-seeker. This enables the individuals in our career network (students and alumni) to present themselves to employers by properly positioning their experiences, skills, and interests. The employer (recruiter) receives access and vital information to utilize in their searches for ideal candidates.
