The goal of this chapter is to help you develop recruiting and training strategies for new college and university hires. It describes how to identify and mold candidates so that you can get the most out of them in terms of productivity as soon as you can. Part of the university's role is to prepare their students so that they can survive and flourish in the industry. This means more than just teaching them the fundamentals. What students should learn should be relevant to industry. These skills will prove more valuable in the long run to both the individuals that use them and the firms that might employ them. While the divide that separates academia and industry is large, both sides are working together to bridge the gap. Some universities bring in people from industry to advise them on curriculum. Some firms dedicate people to work university liaison.
