Here is the event announcement:

LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network on the Internet, and, the leading niche job board for college students searching for internships and recent graduates hunting for entry-level jobs and other career opportunities, are co-hosting their second annual college recruiting conference on Monday, May 5th at LinkedIn's corporate headquarters in Mountain View, California.

Are you passionate about attracting the next generation of talent to your organization? If so, don't miss this chance to mingle with and learn from 200 of your peers who feel EXACTLY the same way. This one-day event right in the heart of Silicon Valley brings together the best and brightest hiring managers, college relations professionals, and other human resource leaders for a day of fast-paced learning, networking, and brainstorming.

No Selling

As was the case for our 2013 College Recruiting Bootcamp, there will be absolutely no selling of any kind during the opening keynote, morning presentations, and afternoon panel discussions. There will be no exhibit hall or sponsors. With the exception of the luncheon keynote by LinkedIn, all presenters and attendees will be corporate or government recruiting and human resource professionals. No third party recruiters. No career service office professionals. No vendors. Just your peers.

TedX / Ted Talks Format

The College Recruiting Bootcamp will feature today's most innovative thought-leaders in college and university relations. Attendees will enjoy a fast-paced, interactive learning environment as we're limiting morning presentations to 20 minutes and afternoon panel discussions to 40 minutes. That lightning fast pace will force presenters, panel moderators, and panelists to be razor focused on their topics.
