Graduates are 74% more likely to apply for jobs at companies that have revealed a little of their personality.
When it comes to hiring graduates, we know that looking for someone with the right personality for the job and company at hand is equally as important as searching for someone with the right degree and experience.
And graduates know it too.
That’s why more and more of them are making the effort to showcase their personality as much as their skills in order to stand out to companies through what they say and how they say it within job applications.
It’s also why 74% of them are more likely to apply for jobs at companies that have returned the favour and provided an insight into their personality within job advertisements.
This is just one of several significant findings GradTouch made in our latest eBook, Personality Power: The importance of showing your company’s personality when hiring graduates.
Among those other discoveries you’ll learn which personality traits graduates find most appealing in a company, where they’re looking to get a feel for a company’s personality and how to effectively identify and showcase the right things while remaining true to your employer brand.
