How pooled campus drives improve your talent pool?

Pooled campus drives, a trend that has now become an effective recruitment strategy, has proved to be quite beneficial when there is a need to recruit large groups in a short time span. Companies who employed this method of recruitment have successfully met their recruitment numbers faster as compared to those using the traditional recruitment method of visiting individual campuses. If you have never thought of this recruitment model, here are a few advantages of conducting a pooled campus drive that may change your mind about this strategy.

Helps you expand your reach to a large number of campuses: If you are looking to recruit a large number of fresh talent from various colleges, pooled campus drives are a smart way to meet your numbers. Through pooled campus drives a company will have access to the top talent from all colleges, therefore making it easy for the company to improve its quality of hire while also meeting its recruitment numbers. Pooled campus drives are especially useful when you want to expand your reach to outside cities. This way you won’t have to travel from one campus to another in a different city to hire the right candidate. You can instead have students from various campuses assemble at a single place to participate in the interview process, allowing you to reach out to as many colleges as you like.

Improved diversity: Bringing diversity within a company has now become a goal for most companies, so much so that it has become a branding strategy. Nowadays, companies aim to recruit candidates from various walks of life to bring new perspectives to their workplace. With pooled campus drives, you’ll have the opportunity to improve the diversity of your company as you’ll have students not only from one or two campuses but from over 3 colleges appearing for the interview. Students from various colleges will have different backgrounds, different perspectives, skills and problem-solving capability that are unique to each other, in addition to being from different cities and regions, therefore bringing about diversity in the company.
Larger talent pool to choose from: Whether your recruitment number is large or small, you don’t want to restrict your selection process to only a small group of candidates from one or two campuses. When you conduct a pooled campus drive, you’ll be exposed to a large group of top talent from over 2 colleges, giving you an opportunity to choose only the best talent for your company.

Saves time and cost: If you are pressed for time and need to meet your recruitment numbers soon, travelling from one campus to another is not going to cut it. Here is when a pooled campus drive is most helpful. Through this recruitment strategy, you’ll be able to cover many colleges in a single day, cut down on travelling cost and meet your recruitment numbers on time.

The company can do its own branding: Branding is important for recruitment, especially when you’re competing for fresh talent in today’s world. Candidates prefer to work for a brand they have either heard of or read about. If you want to save money and time on branding, the best way to do it is through pooled campus drives. This way you’ll be able to cover your branding activities and reach out to more colleges at once, thereby increasing brand visibility among the colleges. This, in turn, will help you attract more prospective candidates to participate in your recruitment drive for the future too.
Helps the company fill maximum number of openings in lesser time: Looking to fill an open position fast? Pooled campus drives are your solution. When you have fresh talent from various colleges gathered together at one place, it’s easy to fill all open positions in your company in 1 to 3 days depending on how long your recruitment drive is scheduled for.

So, if you were looking for reasons why you should consider pooled campus drives as a recruitment strategy, here are your reasons. In addition to improving your talent pool, pooled campus drives also help you beat the competition by allowing you to reach out to many colleges first at the same time if you plan your drive at the right time.
