What is your business offering that makes its recruitment package stand out? What do keen young things look for in an employer? This is something that has been preoccupying me of late. Partly because I find recruitment in Norfolk difficult and partly because we want to start working with businesses to help them be awesome employers.
It’s a while since I was a young thing (cue violins) and almost as long since I went to a traditional job interview.
Generally my job search was as sophisticated as the following.
- How much will it pay?
- How many days holiday will I get?
- Where is it based?
- Do I have the skills and if not can I blag it?
I’m thinking things have changed. Has it become more competitive with more graduates than ever? And does this mean that businesses as well as prospective candidates are looking for different things now?
Much is made of the ‘millennial’ debate (don’t personally like the word). Millennials are supposed to be more discerning in seeking ethical, environmental employers as well as a better work–life balance.
So, as employers, what’s your experience of hiring?
And as applicants, what are you looking for (and do tell me your age if you dare!).
