Cappfinity Co-founder, Nicky Garcea and Author, Lindsey Pollak will be joined by Jada Green of Accenture for a keynote presentation reflecting on the digital transformation that has taken place over the last six months, how businesses are innovating and the changes we’re likely to see in graduate hiring for 2021. When the pandemic took hold, companies were forced to move to a fully virtual hiring model at breakneck speed leaving little time for planning or to consider best practices. Now with the benefit of feedback from the first wave of candidates to experience the new platforms and processes, talent leaders across the globe are evaluating what’s worked and what they need to change as they plan for 2021.

Presenter: Katie Fallon (Plaid) Building and scaling a University Program is an exciting, yet challenging process. Whether it’s starting from scratch or piloting new initiatives, often it’s a small team with limited resources responsible for critical decisions to get a program off the ground. In this discussion, we will share best practices about maximizing time and impact for a 1-person team to build the foundation for University Programs or new program initiatives.
