How to market your jobshop to students

Marketing to students is more than just promoting jobs and posting flyers on campus, it’s also about the ‘candidate experience’ and engaging your students with your service.

A good experience will generate positive, word of mouth, advertising to grow your pool of student workers. Advertising vacancies is quick and easy with Eploy - with direct integration with your distribution channels, giving you more time to make engagement a part of your strategy. Build your workflows to ensure students are kept informed and updated without doubling your workload.

Integrating with you social networks

Integrating with you social networks

Integrate with your social networks and profiles to post jobs and make sure you build a presence where your students are hanging out online. Once you build up a following of job-seekers, use the channel to engage your students in conversation and educate them about your service.

Email and SMS marketing

Send personalised communications to individuals or groups based on their preferences and profiles via email and SMS. Promote jobs, shout about achievements and send reminders directly from Eploy to your students’ inboxes.

Email and SMS marketing
Automated notifications

Automated notifications

As part of your workflow, include automated notifications in the application process so students are kept up to date on their progress and not left waiting for a phone call that never comes.

By automating the process your team won’t need to contact each applicant individually - Eploy does it all for you.

Actions and reminders

For communications you don’t want to automate, set actions in Eploy to remind you and your team members to get in touch with individuals or groups of students. If, when the time comes, your workload is too much you can easily postpone for 24 hours or allocate to another team member.

Actions and reminders
Candidate website

Candidate website

Your website is not only a portal for registrations and applications but also a marketing tool. Promoting jobs will drive traffic to your site where you can also plug the other services you offer to students and create a valuable marketing channel.

We also now have the ability to text and email students about new positions using Eploy’s automated features, which is proving very popular.  Plus, students like the fact that being web-based they can fill in timesheets online at their leisure on campus or at home.
