Exams are over and results are in. Thousands of university graduates across the Australia will be entering the workforce. They will be thinking about graduate recruitment
The new grad market is competitive; however this isn’t just the case for job seekers. Organisations and businesses now have to compete aggressively with each other to attract new grads, particularly those who operate in industries requiring specialist/niche skill-sets.
As such, if your business is looking to recruit and a new grad may be an option for the job brief, it’s important to position yourself appropriately to avoid losing out on top graduate recruitment talent.
But what’s the best way to do this? Here are The Recruitment Alternatives top three ways of attracting the graduate recruitment solutions you need:
Clearly convey your company’s culture and environment
When job hunting, the environment where candidates will be working can be just as important as the role itself. Therefore, it’s important to talk about your organisation, know your culture and your values and be scripted to sell your company as the preferred place to work.
It’s a great idea to include this kind of information in your job advert as it allows graduates to visualise the kind of environment that they’ll be working in.
Talk about future opportunities in your company
When you’ve got your entire career ahead of you, nothing is more disheartening than realising that you’re in a job where there’s no chance of progression.
As such, it’s important to highlight any training, development and advancement prospects within your business. So, will graduates be provided with in-depth training to make them a master of their field? Or, will they have the chance to gain insight into other areas of your company? Or maybe they’ll take part in a development program which will see them progress to a management-level position.
Whatever future opportunities your business could hold for them, make sure you are able to reference them in an interview.
Make sure your graduate recruitment roles are advertised in the right place
When looking ensure you don’t just limit yourself to the main recruitment job sites – your company’s social media accounts can be an excellent way of sharing your latest vacancies with a wider audience. The Recruitment Alternative have access to numerous job boards, advertise on the two leading recruitment sites and offer a Job Seeker targeted job board.
