Speed Dating for University Students and Employers

Greetings from the Australian National University, where several hundred students from Canberra's higher education institutions (not just ANU) are meeting potential employers. This is a form of "speed dating" organized by Ribit (more events coming up). There are dozens of tables scattered around the foyer of the business faculty building with the name of a business on each. There are mentors and pitch-doctors to advise the students. There are sticky name tags with color coded dots, indicating areas of interest. As an observer, it is all very exciting. I am hear to see how this works and how I might move the process on-line.
