As 2016 draws to a close, we summarise seven essential graduate recruitment lessons highlighted on our blogs this year:-
Gamification in graduate recruitment is essential, especially in sectors where talent is in short supply such as engineering. That sector alone requires double the number of current graduates to meet predicted demand. As an extra screening filter gamification forms part of your assessment process for measuring candidate quality. Great examples of gamification in hiring include PwC’s Multipoly which was originally introduced as part of an employer branding campaign. Careers app Debut is a further example of gamification used by over 41 brands including Microsoft, Google and Lloyds Bank. Social media, AI, wearables and virtual reality will also continue to drive digital recruitment in 2017.
