Recruiters: why invest in the new generation of alumni networks’ careers centres?

Students and alumni are increasingly using the career centers of their schools and universities to network and find professional opportunities. Recruiters have therefore every interest in positioning themselves on alumni networks.

The new generation careers centers that alumni networks benefit from have a definite advantage for administrators, but also allow companies and therefore recruiters to :

Find Talents

New generation career centres allow companies to recruit good people in a simple and efficient way. Thanks to a fully intuitive CV library
Thanks to a fully intuitive CV library, recruiters can filter their searches and access the profiles of students or alumni looking for jobs, internships or work experience. The careers centers also allow network members to declare themselves as “market watchers” in order to move up in recruiters’ searches. AF Talent, for example, is designed to broadcast your offers on all AlumnForce networks, i.e. to 5 million potential candidates, to enable you to find the pearl that will complete your team.

The careers centers offer recruiters the possibility to make an appointment with the members of the network whose profile corresponds to their expectations in order to organise an interview. In this search for new talent, the CV library is not the only tool available to the recruiter. They can also post jobs directly on the job board where

Promote your employer brand

As for corporate networks, alumni services and associations of schools and universities are at the service of the employer brand of companies. Indeed, it is necessary to manage one’s image with young people who are entering the job market and who may be the future of your company. Career centers, which allow recruiters to find talent by posting jobs or surfing the CV library, offer companies the opportunity to publish company profiles. This is the perfect opportunity to highlight your company’s values, objectives and expectations to graduates and future graduates. From his account, the recruiter can optimise this company profile “visually” by adding a logo, banners, videos etc.

The careers centers also allow you to be represented within a united and federated community. Your employees can, for example, become the spokespersons for your company by displaying on their profile that they are employed by you and by attracting new talent to discuss your company’s values with them.
