5 Reasons why you should make the campus drive interactive

Imagine a recruitment drive where recruiters and candidates restrict their interactions only to formal interviewing and do not communicate for the most part of the drive! Such a campus drive would be boring and uninteresting and would not solve the actual purpose of conducting it, which is hiring good candidates. Through interactive campus recruitment, recruiters can judge how knowledgeable or average the students are from how they ask their queries or reply. In this way, the hiring team gets an opportunity to understand the actual interest of the students.

Just like recruiters wish to know about the students and decide whether they are the right fit for the company, students would also want to be sure of whether they are accepting the offer from the right organization or not. Interactive sessions like pre-placement talks or group discussions will instil confidence in the students about your brand and help them take a decision about accepting your offer, in case they are shortlisted for the job.

Here are the top reasons why an interactive campus drive is necessary for successful hire of top talent from campuses:

  • Keep the candidates interested: A good, interactive session helps to keep the candidates interested, thereby improving the chances of increasing the talent pool for the hiring company. Talking about the company culture, environment and opportunities for growth for employees will help a company gain better attention from students and get them interested in the job profile.
  • Good branding for the company: Good company branding and ability to build trust among the candidates can be achieved if the campus drive is more interactive and engaging. Students will have a genuine opinion about the recruiting firm and will participate more enthusiastically in the drive, paving the way for the company to hire the best ones for the job profile.
  • Assess the communication skills: An interactive campus drive helps recruiters to assess the communication skills of the candidates and see how well they express their views and ideas. It will also give an opportunity to evaluate how tech-savvy and market-aware they are and shortlist the top talent for further rounds.
  • Understand the skills, knowledge of candidates:Recruiters can evaluate and understand the skill and talent of the candidates through group discussions and other interactive sessions. This helps them identify the right candidates to focus on during interview rounds and assess them before shortlisting the final number of candidates to hire for the job.
  • Improve chances of future recruitments: An interactive campus drive remains leaves a good impression on the minds of the candidates and improves the prospects for a company to visit the same campus for future recruitments. Also, such campus drives give an insight into the knowledge and skill set of the candidates to the recruiters which makes it easier for them to return to the same colleges in the future.
  • Candidates can be your brand ambassadors: Candidates attending a company’s campus recruitment drive can become their brand ambassadors as they will speak about their experience with their peers, friends, and juniors. This way, the brand value of a firm will get further enhanced, giving it ample opportunity to hire students from the same campus in the future.
