Building Talent Pipelines: Partnerships that Drive Value for Universities, Students, and Companies

Standard recruitment and hiring methods often pose challenges for hiring managers who seek to identify qualified candidates for technical writing positions. In this session, we discuss the practice of developing meaningful, department-level partnerships with institutions of higher education in the context of the technical writing industry.

We will highlight the process through which Cerner, a healthcare information technology company, established and grew partnerships with three universities in the Kansas City region and take a close look at the partnership between Cerner and the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC). We will also outline the benefits of this type of partnership for universities, students, and companies.
