Recently, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) shared responses from the 2012 Student Survey of what new graduates seek in their employers. The results have been summarized into 4 key areas below.
- Reinforcing this branding messages through multiple resources is often the key. These trusted contacts could be fellow students, Career Services reps, family members and faculty.
- Have a great intern program as an introduction to the company. Key focus should be given to conducting PAID internships and internships that have project level work. Must be meaningful experience.
- Benefits packages are becoming increasingly important as students enter the world of work.
Do you agree with these key focus areas? Are there other things you look for in a company when seeking a job or internship? Comments are open, share your thoughts!
