Handshake's Executive Report: Bringing Humanity Back to Graduate Recruitment

February 11, 2021

In our Handshake's new executive insight paper, Bringing Humanity Back to Graduate Recruitment, we explore the systemic challenges and inefficiencies that legacy technologies create in the early talent recruitment ecosystem, and propose solutions to start improving access for all.

What's it all about?  

  • Why most professional networking sites are making students and young graduates feel even more disconnected from the established professional world.
  • Unequal access to connections, social mobility and the impact of digital poverty in the early talent sector. 
  • The challenges of providing career education, advice and guidance at scale. 
  • Transforming employer relations teams from gate-keepers to curators and connectors. 
  • Using virtual careers fairs and ambassadors to create real, measurable, human connection at scale.
