Young professionals are important to the continued growth of Precision Avenue, Inc. We have found that millennials have the passion, determination, and student mind-set needed for success in our industry. So, our management has been investing time and energy into learning to effectively find and attract young people to our team. Here are a few interview tactics that help with this:
• Avoid Overselling: Millennials tend to do their research. They also are careful about situations that seem too good to be true. Make sure the perks, position, and culture you describe throughout the process matches with reality.
• Converse: Young people are eager to learn and receive feedback. So, consider a more interactive format for your interviews. Additionally, don’t be surprised if an applicant requests constructive criticism on his or her performance.
• Be Diverse: One of the great strengths of our Precision Avenue, Inc team is the diversity of thinking. Young people have a lot to offer but may be different from existing team members. Strive to build a culture that welcomes new perspectives and backgrounds.
• Keep Things Open: Again, young professionals like to do their homework. Be transparent about your team and what you offer. Expect that applicants will check tools like Glassdoor. As the saying goes, honesty is the best policy.
These tactics will help you attract millennial team members during interviews.
