We’ve gone a bit quiet.

Despite positive feedback, meetings and some fantastic chats and engagements with clients we have decided to take a break. For multiple reasons we have decided the market is not quite ready for Informed Talent. However, we strongly believe that there needs to be more meaningful engagements between employers and students and hope something will be created to help address this disconnect.

Over the past year we have spent a lot of time speaking to students & employers, here are our three top tips for employers:

  1. Decision making takes place throughout the whole year. This gives you a huge window to keep your campaign switch on, informing, updating and engaging students continuously. Try to stop bombarding them all within the same timeframe and expect a different result.
  2. Really review and question the content you are sharing. Is it your typical corporate spiel, is it adding value or is it just the same as your careers website?
  3. Listen. Speak to your target talent, find out what they want, need and how best to deliver it.

And for our students:

  1. Please please please keep asking employers for more information and let them know in what form you would prefer it in. Whether that be online chat, live streaming, speakers at events and so on. Employers want and need to hear these thoughts and recommendations directly from you for anything to change.
  2. Do not be afraid to network and ask questions. The more you do it the better you will become, trust us you will not be black listed.
  3. Focus on what makes you interesting. Tell your story and bring your strengths and passion to life.

Good luck, we can’t wait to see what happens within this space next. We’ll be sure to keep you updated if and when things should change for us.
