  • Boston’s business leaders lag colleagues nationally in recruiting students on college campuses, new poll says

    Boston Business Journal - 04/29/2014

    Nearly 30 percent of Boston’s top-level executives have stopped or slowed down recruiting students on college campuses since the Great Recession compared to just 17 percent of executives nationwide, according to the results of a Northeastern University poll released Tuesday.

    The survey included about 800 C-level executives nationwide, with 100 of them from Boston, Northeastern said. The survey, which took place from Feb. 3-19, is the third one Northeastern University has undertaken focused on C-level executives and gauging their perspectives on global competitiveness, the employee skills gap, employer workforce investments and opportunities for policy reform.

    Some 46 percent of Boston’s executives feel that the higher education system in the United States is doing an excellent or good job preparing students for the workforce, compared to 54 percent nationally who feel that colleges and universities in this country are doing a good job.
