Campus recruitment guide: 3 Reasons why campus recruitment is beneficial

On the surface, conducting a campus recruitment drive seems like a piece of cake. It is only when you dig deeper do you realize the amount of meticulous planning and execution that goes into making a recruitment drive a  flawless one. Moreover, hiring managers have their work cut out for them as there is stiff competition for any position regardless of the industry. Recruiters are now slowly moving away from traditional methods of recruitment towards a more data driven approach that not only helps streamline the process but also reduces manual labor and minimizes paperwork.

Campus recruitment is one of the most preferred ways of recruitment even today. But before you even begin your recruitment process, you need to have a solid strategy in place. Also, you should have a clear understanding of the purpose and objective of recruitment. Once these two things are in order, you need to look into other details such as shortlisting the best campuses based on the skills you are looking for. Choose a campus based on the academic programs they offer and it is preferred if the program  relevant to the job profile you are hiring for. Another crucial aspect that you need to decide is the time you plan on visiting these college campuses. If you wish to visit colleges during peak hiring season then be prepared for some stiff competition from other firms.

During campus recruitment, you will have a lot of other companies that will provide lucrative offers. Therefore, it is absolutely essential to have a pre-placement talk that isn’t humdrum or downright boring. You need to talk about the factors that differentiate your organisation from others, your work-culture and the role the students would be embodying.

The three main reasons why hiring managers are inclined towards campus recruitment are:

  • Ability to hire a large number of quality candidates in a short span of time
  • Serves an important tool for brand promotion
  • Improves retention rate

The two key aspects of any recruitment process are sound planning and proper execution.
