HiringTrends

Thank you for joining us on May 24 for this hour-long professional education webinar that reviewed trends for the graduate management education job market, including who companies are hiring, what they want from schools, and how this relates to the expectations of your 2012 graduating class and prospective students. In addition, we also examined “behind the scenes” trends, such as how companies choose which schools to visit –and what they look for in the students they interview and eventually hire.

What types of data about Employment were featured?
This webinar provided an overview of hiring trends and employment data for business school talent and what it means for the Admissions function. The newest data and key findings from across GMAC survey research was featured and included:

  • Encouraging Job Search Signs from the Class of 2012. Graduates with job offers this year didn’t have to work quite so hard to get them compared with the class of 2011. Students who had a job offer by March sent out an average of 6 resumes, sat for 4 job interviews, and received 2 job offers. Last year, grads reported sending out 9 resumes to get the same number of job offers.
  • Admissions plays a key role for employer on-campus recruiting. The #1 criterion employers site when deciding which campuses to visit for identifying new hires is quality of students. Other results- such as international or ethnic diversity vary depending on a company’s location.
  • Employers Demand for MBA New Hires. More companies plan to increase the number of MBA and master’s new hires in 2012 compared with 2011 according to the 2011 Year-End Employer Poll. New data will be featured in this webinar from GMAC’s forthcoming 2012 Corporate Recruiters Survey Report, to be released on May 22.
  • Understand What Qualities Employers Look for in New Hires for 2012. See how employers ranked the traits they’re looking for in new employees–and discover new data on what aspects of leadership are important in 2012 hires
