could fi ll the CEO's offi ce with food. Th e event
brought in 770 pounds (349 kg) of food, equating
to 650 meals. Th roughout the years, they have
continued to try new ways to collect food. Just last
December, Altair Global hosted a holiday Grinchthemed
food drive and fundraiser that collected
more than 5,000 meals. Th e North Texas Food

Move For Hunger has not wavered. We
whole-heartedly pledge our support to the Move
For Hunger team and to the cause of raising
funds to help those in need, " says Chad Sterling,
CEO of Altair Global. " As we hope to leave the
pandemic behind, we cannot forget those who
still need our assistance. Now, more than ever,
Altair wants to be a source of hope and help to
anyone facing diffi cult times. Th rough our partnership
with Move For Hunger, we can. "

the U.S. At the start of the pandemic, 37 million
Americans were going hungry, and that has
increased to 42 million Americans, including 13
million children. Move For Hunger rose to the
challenge by transporting 40% more food in 2020
than its previous record-setting year in 2019.
Th rough the support of partners such as Altair
Global, Move For Hunger can continue to fi ght
for the families, individuals, and children who are
most in need of food assistance.
RETOOLING EMPLOYER WEBSITES
COULD MAKE THEM MORE USEFUL
TO JOB SEEKERS
Websites are key tools for employers to use to
attract job candidates, especially in the current
environment, when employers are largely unable to
conduct traditional in-person college recruiting.
However, there is a disconnect between students'
use of employer websites in their job search and
students' perception of their usefulness, according
to a white paper from the National Association of
Colleges and Employers.
Succeeding in the New Normal: Student
Attitudes and Effective Virtual Recruiting points
to NACE research that underscores this discrepancy.
For example, nearly three-quarters of the
students taking part in NACE's Student Survey
indicated that they had used employers' websites
during their job search-ranking them No. 1
overall as a resource. However, fewer than half
of these students considered " visiting employer
websites " either very or extremely useful.
There are ways for employers to overcome
this issue. Succeeding in the New Normal offers
several recommendations to help employers
overcome this apparent disconnect and offer
students valuable experiences with their websites,
including:
* Recognize that most students take seriously
an employer's mission and values statements,
but that reading the words on the website is
just the fi rst step. If " we value our employees " -or
words to that eff ect-are set as an
expectation, be sure the candidate experience
refl ects the same.
* Understand that the process employers use
to execute their virtual recruitment strategy
will be of even more signifi cance when digital
communication is the only available channel.
Th e " promises " -students' term of choice when
referencing such expectations as timelines-will
assume even greater importance and serve as a
diff erentiator among employers.
* Feature actual new hires, not stock photos, to
showcase early career opportunities; credible
testimonials are valued, but only if they seem
authentic and not scripted.
* Ensure that the corporate website " speaks
to " those seeking early career positions and
that job descriptions are written in language
students can understand.
* Provide suffi cient detail in job descriptions to
enable students to not only assess their match
to the requirements, but to gauge the appeal of
what incumbents actually do.
