Jobs in the Time of COVID-19
Recent graduates had scant exposure to internships and networking prospects. Consequently, the hiring process might look different from pre-Covid times. It is a challenge to attract the best graduates under these circumstances. Here are a few ways to attract the best applicants:
Focus on Inter-Personal Opportunities
As per the ‘Class of 2021 Report’ from iCIMS, 88 percent of the college seniors aspire to get a job that allows them to meet their co-workers frequently and work from the office for several days a week. The graduates know that establishing professional networks might compensate for the lost time and help them in their long-term career growth.
Accept Virtual Recruitment
Remote interviews have proven advantageous to both employers and applicants. It significantly reduces the costs and intricacies of a physical job hunt. It also allows both parties to expose themselves to a broader range of possibilities.
Acknowledge Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I)
