In today's 'instant' society - Social Media has become part of daily life. Students now expect to use on-line technology for everything and recruiters have therefore to embrace this and act accordingly.
The conference agenda this year is packed with bespoke research and informative case studies from across the graduate community.
RateMyPlacement Enterprise, our new media partner this year, will be sharing the results of the bespoke research they have carried out in November 2014 at the height of the attraction period.
The case studies will come from a wealth of different graduate recruiters including the likes of Microsoft, Allen & Overy and Teach First, plus several more. The content of these case studies will be found to be very useful to anyone working in the graduate recruitment space. Those companies who have not yet started to implement social media in recruitment will find plenty of opportunities to learn, and gain the confidence to consider where social media can be used in successful graduate recruitment campaigns. For those recruiters already using social media there will be the chance to identify the next opportunity and to benchmark against current best practice.
Based on the feedback forms from last year’s delegates other topics we will be looking to explore at the conference include the 'newer', lesser know social media products that are out there and being used by graduate recruiters to achieve their graduate recruitment goals. This will include insights into such products like Google+ Hang Outs, Snap Chat and the government supported young person’s recruitment portal – 'plotr'.
Graduate recruiters and suppliers will find this event an invaluable networking occasion and will also learn how employers are looking to use social media options to speak to their students. By understanding these strategies they will become better placed to help students, and to have a greater understanding as to how they can work more harmoniously with employers.
