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!

Heroes Wanted: Join AOL's Mobile Team

Hi, my name is Sabrina, and I'm a recruiter on the AOL Talent Acquisition team. I'm excited to be the first to contribute to a new series for the AOL Blog that we're calling "Heroes Wanted." The series aims to bring you some of the most exciting employment opportunities within the many teams at AOL. This first post goes in search of heroes to join our Mobile development team, who build some of the most fun and well-regarded mobile products in the business!

In a world where millions of people use our products every month*, we rely on the power and pluck of the mobile software engineers to save the day. You were put on this earth to make a difference and we want to harness, develop and foster your skills and talent to help you achieve that goal. We are focused on the future. We have a solid plan in place to become the largest online content provider in the world and we're making strides every day. But what I truly think differentiates us from other companies are our people. We collaborate and work as a team creating a real sense of community.

We're searching for developers that are passionate about mobile technology. We have a dynamic team full of creative, ingenious AOLers that work hard and play hard. They've already made amazing products like my personal favorites Moviefone for iPad, Engadget Distro and AOL Play. To win the war on bad applications, we are on a mission to find the few, the proud, the super-talented. Our goal is to build intuitive and engaging mobile applications that even your parents can use. This means solving complex, unique and large-scale problems, working with a passionate team and creating compelling apps for the Android and iOS platforms. You'll battle dark forces daily and continually improve processes and tools to make the web a better place for all civilians.

Think you have what it takes? Can you answer Yes to all of the following questions?
  • I have built high quality web applications that were published in the Android Market/Google Play and/or the Apple AppStore. I'll tell you all about them.
  • When I build applications, I always consider how to create a great end-user experience because if I don't look out for those little guys, who will?
  • I have a passion for mobile device technologies and a desire to increase my cadre of technology powers.
  • I enjoy working within a league of other code heroes. Building apps is a team sport and I excel at communications – especially with team members and product or business owners.
  • Also? I have a B.S. in Computer Science or a related field. My coding superpowers extend to Java and Android development and/or Objective-C/C++/C, Cocoa Touch and iOS development. Plus, I have hands-on experience developing software using object-oriented programming and killer design skills. Duh, obviously. I am a code superhero after all.

AOL Celebrates Women's Leadership

For the second year in a row, AOL was named one of NAFE's Top 50 Companies for Executive Women, demonstrating our commitment to cultivating top female talent. By recently partnering with The Levo League, a multimedia website dedicated to guiding female Generation Y talent, AOL is reinforcing this commitment by promoting job opportunities on the site.

For current employees, we lead a number of initiatives dedicated to developing and cultivating leadership among the women at AOL, including:

  • The AOL Women's Network, which is dedicated to fostering the professional development, personal growth and advancement of women at AOL, sponsored a program of learning opportunities for all AOL employees through our award-winning peer-to-peer learning program, UnUniversity. Led by panels of female employees, this month's UnUniversities were programmed in celebration of Women's History Month and discussed a wide variety of topics including the role of women in technology and the challenges surrounding the rise of female executives.
  • The AOL Women's Network leadership committee nominated women from across AOL to attend the Annual Women's Leadership Conference in D.C. last week. This event gave AOL employees a chance to network, attend breakout sessions and hear inspiring words from female business leaders and innovators.
  • To cap off the month long celebration, AOL will partner with the Northern Virginia Family Service in a community service project for women in need on March 30th. Employees will gather together in an effort to bring awareness to women in need, and create Mother's Day Pampering Kits at the AOL campus.

By investing in our talent and providing a culture of support, AOL continues to hire and empower smart people who love what they do. To join AOL's team of talent and passionate innovators, please visit our Careers page or look for our listings on Levo League. We look forward to discovering great new talent, while continuing to support and develop top professionals within AOL.

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.
