Convert a higher proportion of interns into full-time hires

 

MBA Focus recruiting and career services

 

Companies today expect to convert a high proportion of interns into full-time hires. Smart firms convert even higher proportions with the virtual recruiting tools powered by MBA Focus.

The national average of interns who accept a full-time position is about 73%. Recruiters using our recruitment management system admit that their goal is even higher, hoping that "80% of full-time hires will come from interns and co-ops."

But these advanced search and screening tools don't just make it easier to find perfect-fit candidates, they also make it more cost-effective. And as efficiency goes up, hiring goes up. One of our clients that hired 143 interns for the summer of 2011 will be hiring 253 interns for the summer of 2012.

Major corporation like this and other Fortune 100 companies like Amazon.com, Citi, Google, and Johnson & Johnson are leading the charge, but other much smaller companies are also hiring interns via MBA Focus for a variety of positions, including Senior Product Managers, Senior Financial Analysts, VPs of Marketings and Brand Development, and Strategic Consultants.

So what percentage of full-time hires do you draw from your intern population?

Take your internship recruiting to the next level by trying MBA Focus today!
