The landscape of graduate recruitment is evolving more rapidly than ever before. Recruiters and graduates alike are facing unprecedented times and unique challenges. This simply means that new approaches are required to ensure that graduates are having a positive candidate experience and recruiters keeping their talent pool wide and ripe with top talent.
Our speaker Jack Walker, strategic director at SHL, covered some of the main points of consideration for developing a world-class graduate recruitment strategy. Being aware of the key characteristics and attitudes of your candidates is paramount in successful talent attraction. SHL have worked to obtain these insights in more detail, developing their model of Graduate Challenges. Being in tune with these patterns will help to shape your recruitment process in the most effective way. Jack highlighted that the main challenge recruiters face; assessments, onboarding, financial constraints. When attendees were asked about their response to the current pandemic, a huge majority answered that they are adapting. With this continued approach of agility, recruiters can come out on top and continue to provide meaningful experiences for high-potential graduates.
