Hiring graduates of the best universities…just became a bit less complicated

It is impossible for people to remain unbiased about who is the best at anything; do you agree? Nonetheless, we all gravitate to rankings and often put stock in them; particularly if the group compiling the ranking does a credible job. Today’s LinkedIn list of “best universities” is based upon where their graduates are actually working.

How they compiled the ranking is well explained, here.

Nursing and Health Sciences Search: Message to Hiring Decision Makers

Higher Ed Nursing &
Health Professions Search

a department of KULPER & COMPANY, LLC

March 4, 2014
Dear Professional:
During this time of the year universities get particularly busy in their efforts to attract and hire qualified nursing and health professions faculty and administrators. We would be glad to hear from you if you are contemplating using a search firm to assist in the hire of critically needed faculty and administrators.
This year we expanded our service capacity with the addition of a former university nursing department chair to our search support team.
Rather than discuss the features and benefits of our service we thought that presenting a case study would be the best way to convey our service capabilities to you and your colleagues.

Innovation in Academic Search

Summer 2013 Chic MV 202I thought I would share a response to a recent question I received from a top thought leader in the field of human capital and recruiting with deep ties to a highly ranked university.

 

 

Your question I think was—is KULPER & COMPANY doing anything innovative in the area of academic search—-because you haven’t seen much in the way of innovation as it applies to academic search—I think that was the gist of your comment….right?
