Key Findings

SAMPLE KEY FINDINGS

1. Although school-sponsored career fairs account for 40 percent of events attended by benchmark companies, companies increasingly are moving away from fairs to focus on higher value activities such as a educational programs and Company Days on campus. These activities provide better branding opportunities and attract a more focused target audience. High volume hiring companies spend an average of only 34 percent of their time on career fairs.

2. Leading companies facilitate streamlined, multi-divisional campus recruiting by leveraging a triage approach – key representatives perform on-campus interviews to screen for company fit rather than to fill specific jobs. This enables recruiting to send one multifunctional team instead of a separate team for each division or job function. Screening for company fit (based on behavioral interviews) builds a large talent pool that can be leveraged by all hiring managers across divisions to identify potential talent for second round interviews for specific jobs. Companies find multifunctional recruiting drives efficient and effective. Coordinated efforts also present a unified company face on campus, which improves company brand.
