Birmingham Business Alliance launches talent recruitment initiative

Posted: Updated:

The Birmingham Business Alliance launches a talent recruitment initiative for Magic City Classic Weekend.

The Alliance held a welcome reception this morning at The Summit Club in Birmingham to make the announcement.

"Using this weekend's Magic City Classic game as the kick-off of the Talent Recruitment Project, the BBA invited 15 students each from Alabama A&M and Alabama State University to meet, talk and network with top executives, hiring managers and managers-in-training from six selected financial companies from around the region - BBVA Compass, Regions Financial Corp., BB&T, PNC, Wells Fargo and Northwest Mutual," according to a news release. "The students were selected by the schools, meeting a certain set of academic criteria, and the participating banks and financial companies are those that had expressed an interest to the BBA in connecting with high-caliber job candidates from around the state to fill open positions."

"This is exactly what our community needs and what Blueprint Birmingham calls for - to find ways to attract high-caliber job candidates and young professionals to the Birmingham region," said Brian Hilson, president and CEO of the BBA. "We know Birmingham is a thriving and vibrant community, where many young professionals can live, work and play. It's the BBA's job to make sure we get that word out to the rest of the world. This new talent recruitment initiative is just one strategy we are using to positively impact talent retention and recruitment in the Birmingham region."

This morning's event also included a panel discussion of banking leaders and one-on-one meetings.
