Jeff -- You are scheduled to appear on the "News Hour with Jim Lehrer" this
afternoon during the 5 p.m. show to talk about how successful companies
recruit college graduates. Ray Suarez will be the substitute anchor for Jim
Lehrer. The recruiting segment, for which you are one of four panelists,
will run approximately 12 to 14 minutes, probably in the first half of the
one-hour show. The other panelists are:
Marilyn Mackes, executive director of the National Association of Colleges
and Employers (Philadelphia)
Ken Ramberg, CEO and co-founder of Jobtrack.com, the portal most
universities use to post jobs for students and graduates (Los Angeles)
Bill Carson, director of career services for Morgan State University
There will be a three-minute background piece filmed at a recent college
graduation in Portland that will air prior to the roundtable discussion.
Once that airs, the anchor will ask questions of each of the panelists and
start a discussion that will generally follow the format of the pre-interview
you did on Wednesday. Don't worry about keeping your comments short. The
show wants to encourage an in-depth discussion about recruiting. If another
panelist makes a comment that you agree or disagree with, feel free to jump
in and add your opinion.
We will be set up in the Board room, and the show has asked that you be ready
by 4:45 p.m. The show airs live at 5 p.m., and the segment should air in the
first half of the show.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
