21 Jul 3 Factors Employers Actually Review About Recent Graduates
There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding the hiring process straight out of college. Much of the misinformation is rooted in the fact that every employer and recruiting firm operates differently. But with that being said, there are some common threads when it comes to an attractive resume.
For employers, hiring is big business. It doesn’t matter if they’re hiring someone to fill an opening in the C-suite or bringing in a recent college graduate for an entry-level position, the cost of employee onboarding is always high. According to Deloitte research, recruiting expenses alone average $4,000 per position. Then there are training costs, equipment and supplies, and usually a temporary loss in productivity.
By the time the process is completed, hiring a new employee can cost more than $10,000 (not counting actual pay). Having said that, most employers are spending more time evaluating talent in order to ensure they’re making the right decisions.
