The & lsquo;Future of Graduate Recruitment’ will be the topic of discussion at WCN’s free to attend breakfast seminar on 6th February, 2015. The free-to-attend event in London is aimed at heads of graduate recruitment teams and will feature presentations from Blackrock, Potentialpark and WCN, the leading UK and global e-Recruitment software provider.
