Eight Best Practices for Recruiting New Grads

Advance Human Capital

My eldest son is going to be graduating from University in the coming year and although he’s really excited, he’s also stressed about finding a great job that will pay well and where he’ll be fulfilled.

Advance Human Capital

It never ceases to amaze me that companies are still using the same old job posting format to advertise their jobs on job boards, their career sites and social channels. We’ve been looking at these same job postings for too many decades. Enough already! If you’re not already struggling for good talent – you will be. The recruiting landscape is very competitive and it will only get worse.

Seriously! Not another Employer Profile Page Investment.

Advance Human Capital

I had a client ask me the other day if they should invest in an Employer Brand Profile Page on one of the job sites they use. I thought this was a good question considering more and more job sites are promoting that companies must have an Employer Brand Profile page on their site if they want to truly compete for quality talent. Their logic is job seekers want information readily available so they can decide if your opportunity and your company is the right choice for them.

Employer Brand: A Weapon in the Recruitment Arsenal

Advance Human Capital

Good talent, to put it simply, is hard to find. But investing in your Employer Brand makes it so much easier. Identifying and engaging individuals with the skills and competencies to be successful and who fit in with the company culture should be easy enough. Just post your job openings and among the hundreds of potential respondents should be a select few who have what it takes to be successful.
