Join us for a webinar where we will feature four different Indiana employers as we ask them your questions about recruitment in the era of COVID-19.  Panelists will discuss: 

  • What has changed in their recruiting practices over the past year as well as what changes they anticipate are here to stay;

  • Recruitment and employment trends they are seeing; 

  • Skills gaps employers are reporting among recent college graduates; and 

  • How we can bridge gaps between graduates and their first professional position after graduation.

Kelly Friend, CDPI member and the Executive Director for the Office of Career Coaching & Employer Connections at the Ivy Tech South Bend-Elkhart campus, will moderate this panel.

Webinar panelists will include:

  • Kelly Denman, Talent Acquisition Consultant, IU Health

  • Emily Fugate, Senior University Recruitment Specialist, Covance

  • Jamie Mazepa, Human Resources Recruiter, Centier Bank

  • Mickey Raynoha, Human Resources Manager, Mack Tool & Engineering

Additional panelist information will be updated as information becomes available.
