What has changed about Graduate Recruitment?

Recruiting graduates is now shorter, online, paperless, engaging and helps focus on the right candidates very early on. The graduate selection processes of yesteryear built around application forms, paper-based numerical and verbal reasoning tests (taking 30 minutes or more to complete) and resource-intensive assessment centers are over.

There is real competition for top graduate talent. You can no longer get away with gathering applications and having the only communication with applicants be the yes/no letter (could you ever really get away with that?). On top of this, you cannot simply use the same assessments as every other company that is hiring. This doesn't differentiate you and 'assessment fatigue' will kick in. 

Make your organization the top choice by making the time candidates spend with you as engaging as possible. What does this mean? It’s about finding a way to interact with your applicants, treating them as individuals and including recruitment tests that keep them interested – and avoid the weariness of “here we go again!”


Graduate Recruitment Step by Step

1. Be crystal clear about what graduate talent means to your organization

To find out what your business needs, think about your values, your culture, the people you want working with you. Understand what makes for success in the graduate program – and success beyond the program. When you know what’s needed, work to identify this in your graduate applicants. Develop a success profile to guide your graduate recruitment strategy.

2. Design a differentiating and innovative hiring process

The right assessments in the right order in the selection process drive down costs and time investment – for you and your applicants. Aon provides engaging products with just the right amount of fun.

You want to stand out from the crowd — and be remembered for giving your applicants a positive experience. That’s a tough thing to do when all recruiters are doing the same thing!

Think about what can make your selection process different. Competency-based video interviewing? A messaging app test? Doing away with paper at your assessment center?

3. Embrace diversity

Basing selection decisions solely on job-relevant criteria allows organizations to be truly inclusive.

You need to use talent graduate assessments that are scientifically proven not to have bias for, or against, any groups of applicants. Moreover, it needs to identify those who have the potential to fit with your business.

With this in place, your graduate applicant pool widens — and helps you to bring in a diverse cohort of graduates.
