For employers who are hoping to meet the most qualified students and alumni from some of the top universities in the country, going the extra mile—literally—is sometimes the best route. On campus recruiting is a great way to find the perfect match for your company, and it allows students to see what your company has to offer as well. There are three great ways to go about on campus recruiting: career fairs, running seminars on campus and using social media and online campaigns to recruit students.
Career fairs are one the best ways to meet a wide variety of qualified students and alumni who might be your next great employee or intern. At career fairs, employers can market themselves to students and alumni while still being able to meet with potential employees face to face. These highly successful events allow employers to conduct interviews and collect resumes from a large pool of students and alumni.
Hosting seminars on a college campus is another way to attract students and network with alumni. For example, if your company is an engineering firm looking for the most intuitive and creative students, consider hosting a seminar on cutting-edge alternative energy technology. This will bring out only the best and brightest students who are interested in this career field and have ideas about how to improve your engineering firm in the future. It’s an easy way to perform on campus recruiting and benefits both you and the students.
Once you have visited a campus, be sure to remain in the students’ minds by performing e-mail and social media campaigns. Allow them to access your company on Facebook and follow the company on Twitter, so they stay abreast of the latest happenings. This is a great way to keep in touch with potential employees and learn more about the best students and alumni from some of the top universities in the country.
