Monster hiring guide: College grad recruiting during COVID-19
Under normal circumstances, hiring new graduates is an exciting time for recruitment pros. You get to meet fresh new talent, full of the latest thoughts and ideas — as well as enthusiasm about starting their new post-college lives.
This year, however, it’s an entirely different story. On the heels of record-low unemployment rates, the class of 2020 will enter a shakier job market than we’ve seen since the 1930s, and more than 30 million people have filed for unemployment.
Instead of a dearth of talent, organizations are faced with a glut of workers looking for a job, and 2020 graduates will be competing with them.
This ebook was created to help organizations navigate the uncertain landscape of recruiting new graduates during a pandemic. When even reaching and interviewing candidates is a challenge, organizations are finding innovative ways to shift their recruiting strategies. In this guide, you’ll find out what other organizations are doing and how you can adapt your own practices for a new, socially distanced job economy.
