University Recruiting in a Semi-Virtual World: Everything You Need to Know


Canvas Hybrid University recruiting webinar

2021 is the year of hybrid university recruiting.

University recruiting will never be the same. The pandemic made sure of that.

And now that companies are embracing remote work and hiring across the country, the old ways of solely relying on on-campus recruiting are long gone.

In this session hosted by Canvas and Lyft, we’ll hear from Katelyn Amidon, Recruiting Manager, Early Talent Programs at Lyft about her learning from 2020 and how Lyft is preparing for hybrid university recruiting.

In 2021, Lyft is preparing for hybrid university recruiting. So should you.

  • Will big career fairs return to their previous glory?
  • Will virtual events fatigue cause a decline in online participation?
  • What recruiting challenges will you face as you gain access to larger talent pools?

This new world of recruiting is bringing a host of unanswered questions…we tackle all of this and more during this session.

 

 

About the Speaker

Hi, I’m Katelyn and I am Recruiting Manager on Lyft’s Early Talent Programs team! I lead our recruiting efforts for our global and international internship, new graduate, and non-traditional early career programs across our major lines of businesses.

I have been at Lyft for just over 4 years, and prior to that I got my start in recruiting for a small tech startup in San Francisco in 2015. Before pivoting my career to recruiting, I received my degree in Behavioral Neuroscience from University of San Diego and lived abroad to pursue my professional basketball career in Germany.

Outside of work, I enjoy finding IG-worthy foodie spots, all the outdoor and workout activities (hiking, running, swimming, yoga, you name it), spending time with my partner, family and friends and baking.

 

What is Canvas?

Canvas is an all-in-one diversity recruiting platform that helps businesses effectively hire diverse teams.

Talent is everywhere; opportunity isn’t. We’re here to change that—fast.

Canvas is where companies take the guesswork out of hiring diverse teams. It’s where they transform their creativity, innovation, and growth. And where they turn targets into action to create the change society demands.

Why? Because diversity can’t wait and won’t wait.

The future looks like you.
