Coopers & Lybrand bid

In a bid to attract the best and the brightest, Coopers & Lybrand has polished up its annual fall campus recruiting campaign.

The yearly campus recruitment drive by major Canadian corporations runs Labor Day to mid-November.

To give itself an edge in this year’s competition, Coopers & Lybrand, which recruits about 150 students annually, has introduced boldly designed career fair booths and brochures, a new ad campaign in campus magazines, and – in a company first – an interactive computer disk providing detailed information on the company and career opportunities in Canada and around the world.

Deborah Lin, Coopers & Lybrand’s manager, national marketing and communications, says the interactive disk, which is being passed out to candidates after they complete a first interview, helps position the company as leading edge in a highly competitive business sector.

All creative for the fall drive was provided by Toronto graphic design shop Anno Domini.
