Understanding the College Mindset

Rosanna Bell of NAM Youth Marketing

Rosanna Bell of NAM Youth Marketing

In this College Recruiter Webinar, senior liaison and content marketing specialist Rosanna Bell of NAM Youth Marketing discusses strategies and tactics used by leading employers and consumer marketers to reach today’s college and university students and recent graduates.

Today’s young adults are digital natives. Yet marketing to these potential employees and customers requires a well thought out marketing strategy which integrates on- and off-line media. In addition, the on-line media needs to reach them not just through their desktop or laptop computers because they’re constantly on the go and value convenience. It is for those reasons that they love technology and why they use their smartphones dozens or even hundreds of times a day. (more…)

Email Marketing is Still the Most Effective Way to Reach Qualified Leads

Email still trumps social media for customer acquisition—nearly 40 times more effective than Facebook and Twitter combined, according to McKinsey & Co. Meanwhile, Forrester Research states that for every dollar spent on email marketing, the average return is over $44. The return is measurable but email is also the most abused medium by marketers.

How Technology Is Driving the Future of College Recruiting – Part 1

“There’s this thing called the Internet.” And in 1995, with that remark, a career service office director forever changed the future of the business out of which College Recruiter would emerge.

The clock was ticking on the 1950’s era products and approach of students picking up magazines, pulling annual reports from filing cabinets, and even sitting across a table in an on-campus interview room. Today, some 20 years later, it is hard for the recent grads and students we serve to relate to a time when all college recruiting was very physical, very local, and very expensive. What will tomorrow bring and how will those changes impact career services, employers, and job seekers?

How Programmatic Ad Buying Turbo Charges Mobile Banner Ads

Think banner advertising is dead? Think again:

  • Now software companies can deliver info about their latest creative software programs to college freshmen at specific graphic design schools.
  • Colleges founded in the 1800’s can now market their online master’s programs to graduating accounting majors.

At College Recruiter we work hard to make marketing goals a reality for our clients. We completed the implementation of programmatic ad buying into our mobile and display banner advertising solutions a year ago. Our embrace of this innovative idea allows us to ensure that you’re able to reach the right student with the right offer at the right time. Put another way, we can target your ideal prospect by overlaying both contextual and consumer demographic information.

Study shows ATS block 86-94% of those trying to apply

Most popular applicant tracking systems, as ranked by OnGig

Most popular applicant tracking systems, as ranked by OnGig

Human resource departments have always understood the need to efficiently manage the flow of information about people who want to work for our organizations.

Several decades ago the need for efficiency led to the popularization of applicant tracking systems and those have allowed employers to greatly reduce their costs-per-hire, time-to-hire, and ability to defend themselves in lawsuits. That’s all good but with the good often comes some bad.

At niche job board College Recruiter, we see ATS from the vantage point of our employer clients as well as the millions of actively searching recent grads and students who use our site and more passive candidates who we reach via targeted email, targeted mobile banner, and targeted display ad campaigns. As you might expect, many of them get pretty frustrated and the most highly qualified and therefore most sought after candidates tend to give up because, well, they can. (more…)
