A different perspective on recruiting millennial mainframe roles

IT leaders struggling to staff key mainframe positions with millennials need to rethink 
their strategy – and their own perceptions. They are often too caught up in over-emphasizing 
and even apologizing for the platform – mainframe, legacy systems, “here to stay,” etc. 
But Millennial computer engineers are less concerned about the technical platform they work on, 
and more concerned about challenging problems to solve, a supportive work environment and 
a promising career path.

This webinar will cover:
  • Effective strategies for recruiting and retaining millennial workers
  • Top needs of millennial college graduates
  • How IT leaders’ own perceptions of the mainframe can drive away good job candidates

Featured Speakers:

Ken Harper
Director, Product and Technology
