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!

HuffPost UK and LinkedIn Conduct Poll Around London Mayoral Elections

Ahead of the London mayoral elections next week, The Huffington Post UK teamed up with LinkedIn to conduct an opinion poll asking London based professionals to voice their opinions on the widely debated topic of supporting business in the capital. Out of almost 1,000 London voters, 35% felt that job creation was the most important factor in supporting London businesses.

The poll findings come as it's revealed that Britain is back in recession, with recent figures showing that London has the second highest unemployment rate of any British region. Those aged 18-29 were the most vocal on the subject of job creation, with this age group making up the majority of those keen for it to be the new Mayor's top priority and reflecting the high levels of youth unemployment blighting the capital.

The poll also revealed that improvements to transport links and entrepreneurial support were of equal importance to voters, with each receiving 19% of the votes respectively. A further 14% of voters felt that crime and security should be the next mayor's priority, whilst the remaining 12% believed infrastructure should be the focus of our next mayor's efforts.
