Whether your campus recruitment program involves booths at job fairs, on-campus interviews, relationships with career centers, or everything in-between, the goal is the same: to attract and retain bright student and new grad talent. Companies that recruit talent from campuses have been known to see up to a 98.6% retention rate. But getting student and new grad talent in the door is easier said than done. In the US and Canada, there are plenty of open jobs, not to mention that 23% of American companies are doing more campus recruiting than they were 5 years ago – making the competition harsher than ever before.
We get it, the race to secure young talent is fierce.
