  • Summary

    The 2019 Recruiting Benchmarks Survey Report explores key aspects of university recruiting, such as the structure, staffing, focus, and execution of the efforts, and provides outcome-oriented benchmarks and metrics. This report also compares current results to those of previous years to offer insight on trends in recruiting.

    Highlights include:

    • Slightly more than half of all full-time, entry-level hires (58.0 percent) were recent college graduates.
    • Almost all employers (98.9 percent) recruit from traditional four-year public/nonprofit universities.
    • Employers attended an average of 48 career fairs and plan to participate in 47 for the next recruiting year. These figures have increased since last year’s report.
    • Most employers used formal on-campus interviewing as a hiring process, and 49.3 percent of full-time college hires result from this method.
