3 Tips for Hiring Recent Graduates

Most hiring managers are now well versed in recruiting Millennials, but many firms still make avoidable mistakes. Most gaffes involve outdated hiring practices that alienate Gen Y. Here are three tips for reaching the top-performing graduates of this generation:

  • Evaluate for potential, not experience. College students don’t yet have a wealth of resume experience. Seek out those who are passionate and a cultural fit with your organization.
  • Highlight flexible work arrangements. Millennials care more about social and flexible work environments than high salaries. Entice them with perks like extra vacation time and flexible scheduling.
  • Show your culture. A good interview process should communicate the company culture. If your organization has a youthful, innovative vibe, be sure to convey that (but don’t fake it).
