When it comes to campus recruiting, one of the most knowledgeable professionals in the field is Joshua Tunison, National Sales Manager at College Recruiter. College Recruiter is the leading job search site used by students and recent graduates. We had a recent talk with Tunison, who was kind enough to share his knowledge and insight on campus recruiting.

Are you seeing any emerging trends for campus recruiting this fall?

  • Most organizations have a need for applied tech skills but many recruiters have a poor understanding of what they really are and how to identify them. A candidate who is able to integrate people, processes, data and devices has applied tech skills.
  • Organizations continue to compete for candidates with soft skills (communication, problem solving, analytical skills, critical thinking), which can be the difference between a short-term and long-term employee.
  • In addition to skills-based hiring, recruiters will be looking closely for cultural fit within their organization, recognizing that they may have to invest in more skills training to get new employees up to speed.
  • Finally, employers who have a mobile-friendly job application process will see an increase in applications.

What we learned at SHRM 2017

SHRM recap_NAS guys-1.jpg

Phil, Matt and The Jasons of NAS were in attendance last week at the 2017 SHRM® Talent Management Conference & Exposition in Chicago (April 24-26), both as exhibitors and hosts of a special reception for our clients and industry contacts. We asked the team to provide a re-cap of the experience and to share their observations regarding the state of talent acquisition and recruitment marketing in 2017.

Overall Vibe

Phil Ridolfi: “This year’s response was impressive. It was a really good crowd (1,300+, I believe) and the people I spoke with seemed pretty optimistic about hiring and needing some help.”

Matt Adam: “The mood was optimistic with a side of anxiety. People are feeling good about their businesses and hiring activity, yet anxious because finding the right talent is becoming increasingly more difficult.”

Jason Rellick: “An overall theme that was repeated was that companies have great stories to tell, yet still have difficulty conveying their story. There is great potential for the employment brand to thrive, but companies still need help in developing and executing their own personal narrative.”

Jason Weinhaus: “The overall feel was optimistic. Attendees were there to learn about new trends and best practices, because the recruitment landscape continues to evolve and they want to stay up-to-date with their candidates and their competition. According to conversations at our booth and reception, every company was hiring. Some more rapidly than others, but I do not recall having a discussion with any organization in a hiring freeze. It’s always a positive sign and nice to see companies doing well.”
