Talent Acquisition Heads Back to School!


Labor Day has come and gone, and many of you have been snapping those memorable "first day of school" photos of your kids heading off to the first day of class. But you're not the only ones going back to campus! This fall, the College Recruiting team will be promoting AOL as a great place to work by sharing stories about internships, innovation, and culture, while engaging with the top talent at career fairs, information sessions, club meetings and on-site visits.

Last year's popular campus visits brought AOL a large pool of very successful interns, entry-level hires, and recent MBA graduates who were ready to put their freshly-sharpened skills to work. This year, our team is trying to outdo ourselves by engaging even more impressive students from around the country.

Three teams of enthusiastic AOL employees have already met over 300 students at local New York Campus Fairs:


Next up? We're off to campuses nationwide to fill internship and full-time roles. Look out for us at career fairs, club meetings and networking sessions at Carnegie Mellon, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, UC Berkeley, Virginia Tech, University of Maryland and many more!

Patch Heads to School to Find Next Generation of Journalists

At Patch we believe that many of the ideas that will shape the future of digital media and journalism will come (not surprisingly) from the next generation who are now in business and j-schools. Those passionate students will challenge established models and help us constantly reinvent the world of media. For that reason, we love to work with these schools as much as possible. We offer real-world experience and coaching to students at over 100 institutions through our PatchU program. And as often as possible we get to meet with classes and talk about what we're doing. Last night I spoke at the Iona College Mass Communications Department and had a great conversation with students, a couple Patch editors, and Professor Thomas Callahan. My message was basically this: Here's what we're doing at Patch and why; Here's my take on what we can expect in the near future; You will be a big part of how this industry develops; And finally, contrary to popular opinion, the future of local media is incredibly bright and exciting! Thanks to Iona for having me, and I'm off to Stanford's Graduate School of Business next week to talk about the future of media.
