Engage with the target campuses: I reached out to the career services departments of the target campuses to schedule virtual recruitment events. These events included presentations, Q&A sessions, and virtual interviews with interested candidates. I ensured that all communication is clear, concise, and timely.
Leverage social media and other online platforms: To maximize our reach, I created social media and online campaigns to promote the program and attract the best talent. This involved creating engaging content, targeting the right audience, and measuring the effectiveness of the campaigns.
Conduct virtual interviews: I used video conferencing tools to conduct virtual interviews with candidates. This involved ensuring that candidates have the necessary technology and resources to participate in the interviews. I will also work with the HR team to ensure that we are following a standardized interview process.
Manage the candidate pipeline: I worked with the HR team to manage the candidate pipeline, including tracking candidate progress, conducting reference checks, and extending job offers. I ensured that all communication is clear and timely and that candidates receive a positive experience throughout the recruitment process.
Result In conclusion, as a recruiter based in India, I successfully managed a successful virtual campus recruitment program for a US-based company.
