As top recruiters continue to receive huge numbers of applications but only have around 2% of roles that can be filled by student talent, the pressure to win top talent has never been so intense.
Across the 990,000 applications reviewed for high-volume recruiters, only about 2% make it to the offers stage. Fallout rates are big so engagement is king.
Diversity continues to be a big challenge in campus hiring – Female applications underwhelm male applications in quantity but females are more successful than men at receiving offers.
Despite ever-changing political climates, more students are applying for roles outside of their country of nationality. There is a gap in roles being filled by Black and Hispanic which could be eased by a diversity focus.
