Recruiting Strategies

A sound recruiting strategy will enable you to attract the best candidates to your organization. Your approach will familiarize Stanford GSB students with your organization, and will become the foundation of your on-campus brand.

Requesting a consultation with a Relationship Recruiting Manager (RRM) is a great first step in building your strategy. Your RRM will work with you to determine the most effective way to develop your presence on campus.
