Whether your campus recruitment program involves booths at job fairs, on-campus interviews, relationships with career centers, or everything in-between, the goal is always 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 more open jobs than ever, 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. In the U.S., there are currently the same number of job openings as there are job seekers (but of course, not every unemployed person will be a perfect fit for every open role). In Canada, there are currently more people over the age of 65 than under 15 - which means the demand (and competition) for young talent will only increase. With Plum, you can find the agile, innovative millennial and Gen-Z talent you need in talent pools no one else is considering.
