3 Tips for Recruiting Trainees

mars 11, 2022 Recruitment

After running their trainee campaigns for years, NCC decided to work with Zmash to turn their all-year-round website visitors into leads for their traineeships. Download our case to find out more.

Here are a 3 tips for your trainee recruitment strategies!

Tip 1: Be aware that trainees are always out there.

It’s easy to get stuck thinking that you should only recruit when a job is available.

Finding a solution to help you constantly generate candidate leads across the year is a great way to ensure you are collecting candidate data without having to set your Trainee Program live.


Tip 2: Use the data.

Data here, data there, data everywhere. It feels like everywhere you look today, especially on LinkedIn, people just won’t stop about being ”data-driven”.

But what does it mean? You can be data-driven in so many ways, but we think the emphasis should be on

Data-driven vs. Data-aware

You can’t be data-driven if you don’t know

  • What data do you have?
  • What data are you lacking?
  • What data don’t you know you’re lacking?

You can use ZmashBot to get valuable, measurable & actionable insights from your candidates.

  • what they think of your employer brand,
  • what is most important to them at a workplace,
  • what they care most about when choosing an employer,
  • how they found you,
  • etc.

Understand the backgrounds of the users visiting your page & the candidates that send in a full application.

  • how many years experience they have,
  • their location,
  • education and background,
  • skills,
  • etc.

With Zmash’s software capabilities, you can also segment all of the data and answer questions such as:

What do candidates with an IT background and 2 years experience care most about in an employer brand?

Tip 3: Don’t waste budgets on ineffective EB campaigns.

Running employer branding campaigns on social media is much easier and much more effective when you know what sparks an interest in your audiences.
