Businesses need more help these days, but they realize they don’t have to pay for it. It looks as though this year’s crop of college graduates will have an easier time finding jobs, as recruiting is on the rise for the first time since 2008, but salaries remain under pressure for these first-time entrants to the professional workforce.
The National Association of Colleges and Employers notes that recruiting fell 22 percent from 2008 to 2009. While this year’s increase of 5.3 percent makes up little ground, it’s nonetheless a step in the right direction.
For corporate recruiters, the campus recruiting challenges on the horizon are interesting. They will have to hire more people than they did last year, cope with a number of resume submissions per open req that is still high and convince candidates to take positions that pay lower than may be expected. Even with those who are new to the workforce, this may not be easy.
To adapt to this shift in the campus recruiting dynamic, data management will be immeasurably important. The recruiters who are able to keep pace with the high rate of information flow and manage it effectively will most likely have the shortest times to identify, attract and hire the best talent in this particular market.
