Find The Right Paid Interns With Targeted Job Postings

Sometimes the simplest solutions are the most effective. Case in point, when Talent Tech Labs* wanted to hire two paid interns, they tried posting the positions on a number of job boards with disappointing results. Frustrated by the lack of response, they asked College Recruiter for a recommendation.

Simple but Effective

Because Talent Tech Labs wanted to hire two students or recent graduates, versus dozens or hundreds of candidates, our team suggested using a $75, 30-day job posting ad. As part of our standard implementation, the posting included their logo and YouTube video at no additional cost. Studies show that the quantity and quality of candidate responses greatly increase when employers include at least one of these elements in their postings. 

According to Jonathon Kestenbaum, Managing Director of Talent Tech Labs, “Although we posted the same job on a bunch of job boards, half of all the applicants we received and both hires came from College Recruiter. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the results.”

Targeting Makes the Difference

We attribute this success to the fact that College Recruiter’s audience is exclusively college students and recent graduates. By targeting the right candidates, employers can maximize their budgets, while improving response.

Because we work with companies of all sizes, we know that the recruiting needs of every organization is unique. Not every employer has the resources to use multiple recruiting tools and plaster their job postings on every available job board. That’s why our targeted approach is more effective for small- to mid-sized companies. We’ve found that many smaller employers are looking for candidates that have recently graduated and trying to find their first or second job or students seeking internships, which is our sweet spot!

And because our online job posting process is fully automated, it’s quick and easy. In other words, you don’t need an entire human resources team to get the job filled.

Making Great Connections

Of course, we offer more than simple job postings. College Recruiter believes that every student and recent graduate deserves a great part-time, seasonal, internship or entry-level job, which is why our interactive media solutions, including job postings, are designed specifically to make great connections between college students or recent grads and employers.

“We view every client, big or small, as a valuable partner,” noted Faith Rothberg, Chief Executive Officer, College Recruiter. “Whether you want the value and ease of online postings, or customized, interactive solutions, we believe in creating a great candidate and recruiter experience and we’re passionate about customer service. That’s why we go the extra mile to offer free company logo placement and YouTube videos with our online job postings, while many other job boards charge extra.”
