As speaker Jennie An stated, data isn’t always the most egg-citing topic.
But she certainly managed to spice it up at this year’s TalentEgg Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards & Conference, with an engaging presentation that covered a range of topics – from the 2016 Census, to Justin Trudeau and pandas. However, it was her main story of successfully building a campus recruitment measurement tool from scratch that truly captured our audience’s attention.
So what does it take to create such a resource? Lucky for us, Jennie broke it down into four easy steps.
The idea of an employee sticking with one company for their entire career is almost completely a thing of the past.
With the majority of workers changing jobs after 1-3 years, today’s students and new grads are more likely than ever to experience several jobs – and even careers – during their time in the workforce.
As a campus recruiter, you invest a lot of time and effort into finding the perfect hire, so how do you ensure that your top talent stays with you? The first step is understanding the mindset of a Gen-Y job-hopper. Job-hopping is not the resume red flag it used to be. In fact, you might be surprised to find that it’s the top performers who tend to jump around the most because, whether true or not, they feel like they’ve outgrown you.
Therefore, the recipe for keeping your brightest hires with you for the long haul is quite simple: make sure that your company offers them the same benefits they’d get from going elsewhere. And as a recruiter, it’s your job to make sure your top candidates know about these advantages from the get-go.
