How To Build A Better Talent Community In 3 Easy Steps

If a potential candidate doesn’t get the gig, or a co-op placement comes to a close, this often signals the end of that person’s relationship with the company – but it doesn’t have to be this way!

In fact according to our 2016 TalentEgg Student Judging Panel Survey, many students and grads want to stay connected with an employer for a variety of reasons, including mentorship and future job opportunities. Of course, it would be nearly impossible to keep in touch with every intern or applicant that crosses your path, but there is an easy fix: creating a talent community.

What is a talent community? According to The Undercover Recruiter, it is “a group of candidates that a company is focused on building a relationship with.” Often created using social media, these communities focus on creating a “two-way dialogue” between the company and its talent pool.

And the benefits are numerous; not only does it allow you easy access to qualified candidates, it’s also an incredible learning opportunity for applicants. While many big companies have been doing this for awhile, organizations of all sizes can reap the rewards of a thriving talent community.

The 5 Types Of Highly Desirable Passive Student And New Grad Candidates & How To Reach Them

Sometimes the best candidates aren’t the ones looking for a job.

There are many students and new grads out there that might not be actively seeking employment at that moment, but if the right position came along, they would definitely be interested and very qualified.

Maybe they’re continuing their education, or taking some time off to travel – whatever the case may be, these types of passive student and new grad candidates are a highly underrated group worth a second look by employers. For example pursuing a postgraduate degree or certificate shows a high level of dedication that many employers look for in new hires. An added bonus? Since they’re not on the job hunt, these individuals are not likely to be interviewing with other companies.

To help you attract this hidden talent pool, we’ve examined five types of highly desirable passive candidates and the required steps to reach them.

Gen-Y Job-Hopping: What Campus Recruiters Need To Know

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.
