Alumni not Ex-Employees

The college experience can be one of the most transformative periods of a persons life, leaving a lifelong impact. Universities have been nurturing people through this for 100+ years. In this wide-ranging discussion, we will explore what employers can learn and apply from universities that will create a transformative experience for their new talent over the first 2-4 years they spend with a company. Equally as important how do we turn our ex-employees into proud alumni.
