The competition for interns is fierce, and today’s college graduates are a new breed. As Millennials (the youngest being 25) and Gen Z (the oldest being 23) make their way into the workforce, they present unique advantages for employers.

Nas Recruitment

In the recruitment world, we’re often so externally focused that we overlook an equally important component of company identity: internal branding.

So, how do you know if you’re following best practices in engaging with candidates at this level of interaction?
