Forage has partnered with the world’s leading companies to deploy Virtual Work Experience programs to over 1.4M college students. During that same time, the Coronavirus pandemic took what would have taken 10 years of change for campus recruiting and accelerated it in 3 months. Now, it may never be the same.

Moderator Highlights

  • Forage works to leverage the playing field for students by providing free college courses
  • You need to ask yourself – do I need to innovate?
  • What worked yesterday won’t work tomorrow
  • It is a systematically uneven playing field
  • By the time a great candidate is in their junior year, the battle for the candidate is already over 
  • Strategies are designed by companies, not candidates
