Better Recruiting of Fresh Grads
Employees are crucial to every organization, of course, but are especially important in service-related industries (design agencies, media outlets, marketing consultants) where people are the product. With the idea of keeping salary costs low and bringing on raw talent, companies often look to fresh college graduates to fill entry-level positions.
Recruiting, however, can be tough but CareerBuilder looks to help, announcing new products that will help businesses simplify and expedite the college recruiting process in particular.
1. Emsi Analytics for College Recruiting: Compiles enrollment and graduation data from over 10,000 schools, including insights on which majors will have the most graduates and school/student rankings.
2. Broadbean College Distribution: Allows users to select multiple colleges in a single request and removes the approval process for recruiter posts.
3. CareerBuilder’s Talent Gather: An app available for smartphones and tablets that allows recruiters to collect and keep better track of candidate information while at events.
CareerBuilder reports that 67 percent of hiring managers and human resource professionals say they plan on hiring recent college graduates this year, so these solutions can definitely help with the recent grads in the hunt currently.
“CareerBuilder’s technology has allowed us to have a truly data-driven strategy for our campus level positions,” says Brittany Palubiski, manager of Global University Relations at General Motors. “We were able to audit our university talent recruiting strategy and hone in on schools that are producing high volumes of talent in degrees we target at GM. As important, we can take a deeper dive, and ensure that the schools we select not only have high volumes of talent, but include a true diverse pipeline. This has helped us impact our quality of hire, time to fill and ultimately, our candidate experience and acceptance rates.”
