The New Way to Hire Gen Z

Candidates and employers alike agree that the status quo of early career recruiting and hiring today is no longer effective.

Candidates are sending out upwards of 50 internship or job applications to roles that they aren’t even sure they are qualified for, and employers are spending a lot of time, effort, and money to find the right candidates, yet are forced to spend a lot of their time sifting through unqualified applicants. Plus, response rates on their outreach to candidates who are qualified are extremely low, and going to in-person events to source candidates, such as large-scale diversity conferences and campus visits, has a very high cost for very unpredictable results.

In today’s modern world, there simply had to be a more effective way to help employers and candidates connect with one another. 

Read our guide to learn how you can streamline and scale your recruiting efforts without breaking the bank and stay ahead of the competition with the smartest early career recruiting software out there today.
