The outdated campus recruitment process
The first two waves in the education industry were focused on getting more people to enter higher education and on getting more students to earn degrees and certificates respectively. Today academia and industry are converging producing programs that ensure learners are job-ready and primed for lifelong career success, confirming the rise of the third wave.
The existing talent pipeline is built on an outdated campus recruitment process that revolved around the first two waves. Recruiters had thousands of universities and lacs of candidates spread across the country to filter from. Campus placements were conducted with undefined expectations, competition from fellow recruiters, time constraints and wastage of money.
Talent on Demand
Today, it has all come down to hiring for in-demand skill sets and recruiters are taking a brisk & crisp strategic approach. Companies are looking to reach more and more aspirants, assess them real-time and move them quickly but smoothly through the onboarding funnel. Savviest of companies have recognized this opportunity to connect with prospects through a dynamic campus recruitment program like Talent on Demand.
On-demand fresher recruitment that adapts to the needs of both the learner and the employer takes account of the technology-infused, gig-oriented, industry-driven global economy. But it has a prerequisite that freshers, as well as professionals, have the skills required to start and flourish in their careers.
Universities and employers are making inroads in nurturing such talent on-demand with innovative programs like Integrated Learning Programs and Finishing School at campuses. While learning technology is critical, learners require hands-on experiences that cultivate skills, fluency of ideas, judgment, decision-making, and active learning, all supported by the fore-mentioned collaborative academic and career learning paths.
Enterprises part of Talent on Demand accept that the sourcing, training, and onboarding via this program make their fresher recruitment faster and more adaptive. This shift from the traditional route to employment to a network of defined pathways that is flexible, dynamic, and ultimately serves more recruiters and learners.
