A survey says as much as 84% of companies globally, understand the importance of campus recruitment. But, having said so, almost all of them agree on the fact that attracting campus talent is quite uphill a task.
In fact, it’s no secret that industries at large have been facing a major talent gap of late. The battle for talent acquisition has made organizations explore newer and better ways to source best-in-class talent through campus recruitment. With more than a lakh students adding up to the talent pool every year in India, the gap is widening.
Among the ways, organizations are implementing to change the face of recruitment, one of the major ones is, changing the dynamics of campus recruitment. Organizations today more than often hire from campuses well before the candidates graduate. As a result, providing them ample time to develop their role-specific skill sets by the time they graduate.
Re-thinking your Campus Recruitment Program
Here’s how organizations could re-think their campus recruitment strategy for better results when it comes to acquiring talent:
1. Indulge in employer branding – Every time an organization evaluates a candidate, the candidate evaluates the organization as well. It’s essentially important hence, to put the best foot forward. Be it the work culture or organizational policies or even the product/service domain.
2. Understand the candidate – It’s essentially important to understand the candidate – his intent, his expectations. Learn about a candidate’s objective and personal goals and align them to the growth of the organization. It can go a long way in both acquiring and retaining talent.

Many organizations lose out on potential talent due to lack of informed decision-making. Being aware of the talent landscape is a necessity for organizations to on board the right campus talent.
4. Hire anytime, hire anywhere – The talent scenario today demands an omnipresent campus recruitment program. But, in reality, any organization can only visit a handful campuses on a given day. To bridge this growing gap between talent and organizations, remote recruitment needs to be leveraged. Anytime, anywhere hiring is the future of the talent acquisition space by far.
