4 Reasons Why Employers Should Embrace The Reverse Career Fair

College and university career fairs are a staple event of the campus recruitment industry, and it’s easy to understand why.

Recruiters get to interact with a wide variety of students, and attendees have the chance to learn more about potential employers – it’s the kind of event that satisfies both sides of the campus recruitment spectrum.

But recently, some schools have been putting a new twist on the traditional concept in the form of reverse career fairs. These events are similar to the original, except the roles are switched. In this case, the students create the displays and handout materials, and the employers get to walk around and talk with presenters.

4 Campus Recruitment Lessons We Learned From Popular Teen App Musical.ly

The modern workforce is changing and fast.

Baby Boomers are retiring in droves, older millennials are rising into management positions, and Generation Z (those born roughly between 1994 and 2010), are starting their first internships and co-op placements. So, if you’re hiring students and new grads, it’s time to start considering how to engage this new generation.

To start, we can learn a lot about a demographic by analyzing the digital spaces they occupy. Similar to how millennials are seen as the “selfie” generation, Generation Z’s online habits reveal quite a lot about their interests and motivations. While they’re “digital natives” just like Gen-Y, where and how they spend their time online is a little different than the generation that came before. For instance, while millennials are defined by first-generation social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, younger teens are flocking to video-based mobile platforms like Snapchat.

To gain more insight, we dug a little deeper into the rise of the latest popular teen app, Musical.ly. This Instagram-meets-Vine style program invites users creating their own videos to accompany a selection of songs served up by the app. It’s clearly popular: Musical.ly has hit #1 in the App Store charts in 19 countries and is even spawning its own set of celebrities, similar to Instagram and YouTube before it.

Here’s what Musical.ly taught us about Gen-Z and campus recruitment.
