Generation Z graduates are hitting the job market, and their interest in tech is strong. Despite overall shrinking college enrollment from 2016 to 2017, STEM programs actually made gains, with four-year degrees in science technologies and computer and information science up more than 6 percent. What’s more, nearly 75 percent of Gen Z graduates have taken some sort of digital, coding or computer-related courses. Given persistent and acute talent shortages, that’s good news for tech employers. Still, finding and hiring these Gen Z workers will require a major mindset shift. While they’re psychologically motivated by the same things as most other generations, Gen Z is also exploring new ways of finding work, and many of them are going to insist that work be meaningful. More than ever, they’ll roundly reject multi-page applications and four-week interview periods. They’re going to demand an alternative to the tedious processes so fundamental to recruiting today. Register now to join Gen Z recruiting experts Katrina Kibben of Three Ears Media and Amanda Crosby-Rickman at Envoy on a live webinar to find out exactly what this post-Millennial generation wants, and learn powerful strategies to identify, source and hire them. During this ERE webinar sponsored by Dice, Kibbens and Crosby-Rickman will share:
- How shifting values are impacting recruiting outcomes.
- Why Gen Z is different from other generations.
- Where to find Gen Z talent online (and off).
- Case studies and tactics you can use for recruiting this generation.
