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.

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.
