Intelligent college selection and ease of registration:
Companies can select colleges using criteria such as accreditations, number of students, ratings, degree / courses offered, year founded, address, past placement performance and other important criteria. Employers can then register at these colleges for recruitment with a few keystrokes and know in real-time the status of their registration.
Eliminate the need or Preplan campus visits for higher effectiveness:
Today, most of the activities for campus recruitment are performed only during a campus visit. For example, Companies seldom receive the student resumes in advance and are often unsure about the level of interest in their job postings or know in advance the number of candidates to be interviewed. This is highly inefficient and often results in employers expending valuable time and money in campus visits.
Campus Direct allows most of the recruitment activities to be performed online reducing or eliminating the need to visit colleges. If campus visits are still necessary employers are pre-armed with this information and can optimize use of its HR resources, be prepared prior to visiting the campus and be more effective while at the campus in selecting candidates.
Screening and filtering candidates:
Employers often spend significant time in manually screening candidates based on information from resumes or by administering and scoring screening tests. Campus Direct can cut short this time by more than 70-80 percent.
Companies can post jobs with predefine criteria such as exam scores to filter students who qualify. Campus Direct also presents the information from CVs in a consolidated report with key data elements such as exam scores displayed. This information can be sorted and with a few click strokes candidates can be short-listed. There is no need to open every single resume.
In addition companies can also use standard screening tests available or create customized tests to screen candidates. These screening tests can be conducted at the time of applications, at the time of campus visits in controlled or open environments.
Arranging joint campus visits:
Today, companies often visit multiple campuses at the same metros since there is limited information that employers have in advance on student interests in the job advertisements & the quality of applicants.
Campus Direct, gives employers access to this information in advance of the campus visit. Employers can then consolidate their interview process by conducting joint interviews at a single college. Select students from a number of target colleges can visit a specific college campus for interviews.
Companies that have large recruitment needs or are seeking the best students or from another region can use Campus Direct to coordinate and communicate with students and placement offices to conduct joint interviews.
This leads to reduction in costs, time savings and improved efficiencies for the company.
Improving onsite efficiencies:
Companies can utilize facilities of the college - computer rooms with internet connections in combination with the Campus Direct Platform to conduct and manage the complete onsite activities in an automated and efficient manner.
Candidates who may have missed a job ad or have not made up their mind can respond to job posts just prior to the employer's campus visit. Information is made available to the HR team visiting the campus real time on Campus Direct.
Meet large, sudden or unexpected recruitment needs:
Today, most of the campus recruitment process is scheduled in a highly compressed and rigid time frame that often does not meet the needs of the employers. BPO, IT, Retail, or Banking industry employers that have unexpected or uncertain or very large hiring requirements find this rigid structure not suitable.
These companies can greatly benefit from the use of Campus Direct as it expands the schedule of campus recruitment. Employers can tap into the graduating student population all year round. Every student record in the Campus Direct network is dated with year of graduation which can be used to select colleges and students.
Know real time status:
Being informed on time all the times is a central requirement for delivering optimal performance by HR. The Campus Direct Platform allows company management and HR teams to know what is the status of their campus recruitment initiatives across the nation. Companies know how many colleges have put up their job requirements on the online notice boards, how many applications have been received, kept on reference, short listed, rejected or hired in total as well as by college and by posting. In addition access to screening test results, applicant resumes and college placement offices is available at the click of a button.
