Graduate hiring is getting harder
This year graduate employers are facing the challenge of increased competition for graduates. The number of graduate job vacancies is expected to increase by 15% in 2022. The problem is further exacerbated by a fall in applications of 7% year on year.
Additionally, 47% of early careers professionals say they are underfunded, and with continued economic uncertainty, budgets are expected to remain tight.
So, how do you attract enough suitable candidates? Make your recruitment process simple yet still provide sufficient insight into the candidate's capabilities?
With candidates having even great choice, you need a frictionless recruitment process to attract sufficient numbers of applications. At the same time, you need to filter and assess candidates' suitability for the role and fit with your corporate values.
Getting this tricky balance right is key to a successful graduate recruitment campaign. Make the process too simple, and you'll be overwhelmed with unsuitable candidates. Too complex, and you'll deter many good candidates and find it harder to fill your quotas.
A new streamlined approach to graduate hiring
We work with large employers such as the BNP Paribas, Bank of England, Imperial Brands, Mace Group, Schindler and Unilever to create end to end hiring processes that quickly evaluate candidates' skills and suitability. Whilst simultaneously engaging them and providing a clear insight into the role and the culture of the organisation.
Often described as "one experience assessments", these will generally combine a realistic job preview, usually in the form of videos, a situational judgement test (SJT), or values-based assessment, and an automated video interview. The whole process typically takes candidates less than 30 minutes to complete.
You can then see how each candidate ranks on their skills and suitability, resulting in an overall fit score. Then, you can go straight to a conditional offer for those above a certain threshold.
