The recruitment model is changing


Even with job boards, online networking, and social media recruiting— employers say they are still missing too many high-potential candidates.

Consider this: Recruiters may literally look at thousands of resumes from thousands of sources while searching for that ideal candidate. The main problem with this data is that it is not standardized; recruiters have to search to find the information they need.

The Global Focus database helps recruiters find exactly what they need by providing a common format for every student enrolled.

All an employer needs to do is choose their desired criteria, whether it be involvement in clubs and activities, geographic preferences, or demonstrated leadership and/or work experience. Search results are returned instantly from the thousands of candidates in the database. Those candidates that most closely match what the employer wants rise to the top of the list, making it easy for the employer to find the most qualified candidates for the job.

Let’s imagine that a large financial corporation needs to hire ten candidates for a finance position.

The example above shows how a recruiter might search the Global Focus database to quickly identify quality candidates. Without Global Focus it would be very difficult to gather, review, and interview the number of high quality candidates needed to make ten formal offers of employment. With Global Focus, recruiters simply search the database and then directly connect with their ideal candidates.
