RecTech: the Recruiting Technology Podcast


May 10, 2019

Yello, a leading talent acquisition software provider, today debuted the findings from its fourth annual Yello Recruiting Study at STRIVE 2019, the company’s talent acquisition conference.

According to the Pew Research Center, the oldest members of Generation Z are turning 22-years-old this year and many will be entering the workforce as they prepare to graduate college.

Top themes and findings from The 2019 Yello Recruiting Study include:

  • Gen Z is confident in the current job market and their job prospects post-graduation. Likely thanks to today’s tight labor market, about two-thirds of Gen Z students are confident they’ll receive a job offer – and 35% expect to receive more than one offer. Similarly, members of Gen Z are clearly setting themselves up to succeed in the candidate-driven environment by starting the job search early.
  • Gen Z still values face-to-face communication ... Fifty-one percent of Gen Z respondents said they prefer to communicate in-person, while a quarter said they prefer to communicate digitally.
  • Unlike millennials, Gen Z says working with recruiters that are “trusted advisors” is crucial. Recruiters should know that their approach can have a significant impact on Gen Z’s decision to accept a job – 44% of this group said the recruiter they spoke with has the biggest impact on their decision to accept a job while only 29% of millennials agreed. Recruiters should also be sure to treat Gen Z fairly during the hiring process as three-quarters of this group cite being treated unfairly as the top cause of a negative experience while only half of millennials said the same.
  • Employers shouldn’t forget about HR tech to create a seamless, quick experience for Gen Z and other generations. Though Gen Z places emphasis on in-person communication, they still expect their employers to use technology – especially when it comes to making the application mobile-friendly. 26% of Gen Z candidates say that a lack of technology throughout the hiring process would prevent them from accepting a job with the company. This is notable considering only 15% of employed millennials and 13% of Gen X candidates cited this sentiment.

Skill Based Recruiting Platform Gets Seed Round

The startup has closed on $650K in pre-seed funding led by Atlanta-area investor Jon Hallett, a previous backer of Nexza’s co-founder, Rob Patten.

Nexza is entirely free for both employers and candidates to create and host their profile. The employer simply enters their description and company-wide benefits. Then, each individual team — software development, QA, product managers, etc. — can create their own profile specifying their tech stack, individual details and more.

 

On the candidate side, the individual inputs education, citizenship status, tech and non-tech skills, LinkedIn, Github or personal website. They also clarify what they might be looking for: preferred geography (or remote work), whether they’d like to work from home at all, their ideal company size and role.
