Why "Train then Hire" Makes More Sense for Graduate Recruitment

With the help of industry-leading campus recruiters, Forage has deployed Virtual Work Experience programs that have reached nearly 1.5M college students.

These industry leaders operate from a different rule book. They’ve flipped the traditional script of “hire then train,” to “train then hire.” Also known as preskilling, this new recruiting strategy uses workplace simulation to show candidates what it’s like to do the work while giving them basic skills to be successful in the workplace. Then they hire from this pre-trained talent pool. Recruiters can do this while they sleep with digital experiences that are on 24/7/365.

Tune into this session with Forage CEO, Tom Brunskill to learn more about this exciting new trend in early talent recruiting.
