Building a Pipeline: One Company's Holistic Approach to College Relations
Pratt, Joseph
Connection: The Journal of the New England Board of Higher Education, v17 n4 p29-31 Win 2003
This article describes how Fidelity, the largest mutual fund company in the United States, has transformed a traditional college recruiting program into a holistic college partnership that emphasizes the interdependence of its parts. Fidelity's enhanced internship program embraces the "try before you buy" philosophy, which benefits both the firm and the student. During their internships, students are provided with the opportunity to do "real" work and participate as active members of their business group. Another talent acquisition approach adopted by Fidelity includes building a pipeline into the K-12 arena, a strategy that prepares the company for future market gaps while building goodwill in the community.
