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!

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?
