The Pillars of an Award-Winning Program
Fisher Investments was selected as a 2024 Campus Forward Award Winner for their unwavering commitment to seeking out and hiring early career talent and investments in nurturing and retaining the next generation of diverse talent. Please see below for the highlights of their approach to early career recruitment.
Multi-Faceted and Thoughtful Approach to University Recruitment
The Early Talent Team crafted a “student first” approach with campus events, virtual panels and D&I targeted digital engagement . The team strategically collaborated with business units and the larger Talent Acquisition group to develop a strategy that would meet historic hiring goals. They executed a “school agnostic” digital approach through email campaign efforts reaching over 400,000 candidates in 2023 to drive applies and brand awareness. The team significantly increased their on-campus presence with over 300 events, resulting in an uptick in early acceptances. In total, the Early Talent team generated over 7,000 applies and 214 extended offers in 2023.
Overarching Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
Fisher Investments utilizes a “hire from all majors”, approach which allows the firm to attract a more diverse candidate pool. The Early Talent Team championed several initiatives in 2023 including relationships with D&I Alliances and further integration with diverse student organizations. Fisher Investments also launched over 40 email campaigns engaging students from various diverse backgrounds generating over 950 applies. This year, the team enhanced their approach to recruiting top diverse talent through hosted virtual events. They leveraged leaders from employee resource groups (ERGs) to participate in and moderate panels so students can learn from diverse leaders at Fisher about their experience, firm culture, and career opportunities. This also provides students an opportunity to network and engage with allies across the firm.
Impactful Internship Program
Those selected for the Fisher Investments 10-week Summer Internship Program are provided a unique opportunity to grow their skillset as a professional and gain a holistic understanding of the financial services industry. Boasting a 92% return rate, Fisher provides interns a welcoming onboarding experience with workshops, professional development classes, access to firm-wide ERGs and the opportunity to engage with firm leaders. The Early Talent Team provides executive leadership networking opportunities, a virtual stock market challenge, community service opportunities, social gatherings and dedicated 1:1 peer mentorship.
