How Casual Interactions with the Interns Help Employers
Providing internships is a great way to find new employees and build your company's brand. Management that works to the benefit of both the organisation and its interns is essential. Learn some effective methods of managing and motivating interns if you currently have any or plan to hire any in the future. Casually interacting with them will surely help you as an employer. But How? Read on.
Every new age faces its own set of problems and has its own set of career goals, wants, and preferences. Gen Z is no different.
The effects of technology and the global pandemic on the labour market have had a big impact on this generation. Because of this, recruiting Gen Z will require a different strategy than it did for previous generations. In this strategy, personal, informal relationships will be the most valuable currency.
Employers need to be aware of the shift in the ways things work. They should start putting a priority on building digital relationships with young talent. To attract and keep them in more remote-first and delegate smartly as "The Great Resignation" spreads across the country.
To build a strong talent group over the next 10 years, it will be important to make it easy for Gen Z to make casual connections with the people they want to meet. How members of Generation Z choose to work with companies ?
Job fairs and interviews in person used to be the norm, but Gen Z now chooses to get in touch with potential employers online. Virtual recruitment gets rid of the time and space limits that keep qualified talent from talking to businesses. This leads to more contacts and the creation of more partnerships with early talent.
Generation Z is the most diverse generation ever. It will be important to have a strong digital recruitment base. Why? To engage, attract, and finally hire the next generation of talent.
Think of one-on-one relationships as a way to break up the "old boy network" that has traditionally favoured men and hurt women. This will help you find talent that the rest of the business may be missing.
To engage the next generation of changemakers, create an environment where one-on-one meetings are encouraged. When you reach out to candidates and tell them you'd like to meet with them casually, the balance of power is more fair.
Students like virtual interviews better than in-person ones. Personal one-on-one internet contacts are a fairer way to screen the talent. You can make more real connections with people when you use Video Conversations. Employers can just mark their availability calendars for, say, Thursday at noon. Or even Tuesdays in between meetings.
On the other hand, maybe every Friday morning after the workouts? The reason is that Virtual Chats let you talk to students for 15 minutes at a time in a casual, relaxed setting. Gen Z loves this kind of setting for making personal connections that last.
To make relationships with people, you need to be clear about what you can do for them. When you invite students to your online discussions, I suggest telling them to bring any questions they might have. Give them some questions to get the conversation going, like
Is this job or programme right for me?
What courses or skills do I need to learn to do this job well?
How do I fill out the application? What happens next? What if I'm not chosen?
Interact casually, and you'll see how the young generation gets attracted towards your internships. They prefer cool over sophisticated. Give them what they will respond to, and get your talent easily.
