Top Tips For Attracting Millennial
Millennials are every employer’s top choice when hiring.
They’re young, motivated, career-driven, and bring fresh talent into the company. This is a great way to invigorate the work environment with new talent and ideas.
Sources have confirmed that millennials are expected to make up 75% of the workforce by 2030. This is not unexpected news if you’ve vetted millennial candidates and seen how vastly talented they are!
Here are 3 tips for attracting millennial candidates for your job positions.
- 1.) Stress on the Employer Brand
Millennials want to work for brands more than corporations. Employer brand reputation helps them decide if they want to associate their name with that business. This is why your brand image is essential for the hiring process.
The best move is to familiarize millennial job seekers with your brand and offer them a glimpse of what it would feel like to work for them. Make the interviews more informative for them than for yourself. Offer them more information about your brand than demanding to know about personal motivations and career plans from them.
- 2.) Promote Fun Alongside Work
With growing competition in the job market, it’s not only getting difficult for job seekers to land their dream jobs (or any job), but also for recruiters to find the right person.
This is primarily because recruiters make working or professional expectations seem like a daunting reality. Millennials disfavor places that are all about work and no fun.
They want the workplace of their choice to offer as much breathing space and casual entertainment as professional opportunities. There are enough toxic workplaces out there and intense workload makes it even more so.
- 3.)Have a Social Media Presence
We all know that social media is a platform where millennials live and breathe. If you really want to reach out to them, make sure to have a dominant presence on social media. Just having a LinkedIn profile is not enough.
As mentioned above, millennial job seekers are looking for brands with a strong image to work for. What better place to establish your brand image than Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat?
This is also the fastest route for you to reach out to millennial candidates and approach them for a job vacancy. If your jobs are listed on these platforms, millennials are more likely to seize the opportunity and apply straight away!
