Cowne’s (SGC) recruiting process had may dimensions internally and externally
both. In internal dimensions, SGC promoted their current young employees to
higher levels. SGC hired their interns to full time employee after completion
of their studies.  In external dimensions,
they did recruitment on college campuses. In the fall, SGC associates started
to give company presentation at certain business schools. These associates will
conduct “informal interviews” to ascertain students’ interest before the first
formal interview. SGC assigned team captains at each school to be a point of
contact so that they can have easy access. Those captains were preferably bank
professionals who were alumni from that school. The success of SGC in
recruiting started when team captains and other team members were able to
search diligently like Cornell. Gregg Schoenberg joined the team in 1998 as
team captain and also he was the alumni of the Johnson School of Business at
Cornell. He conjectured that Cornell students had to show more proposals and be
more focused which turned out good as great hires results. SGC couldn’t be big
players at core-school; they decided to find success at recruiting in non-top
10 schools like Emory and USC.
