In discussions with many civil engineering firm leaders, it is clear that the number one challenge for civil engineering firms of every size is finding good people to build their company around, and that’s what the Talent Acquisition service of the Civil Engineering Collective will do for your firm.
Most firms have told us that the best approach to talent acquisition is to build a strong internship program so they can hire smart, motivated interns and teach them their culture from day one. They cite this, “growing organically” approach as easier than trying to mold more experienced engineers as they already have ingrained habits that may not mesh with their philosophy.
They also cited the idea of hiring less experienced engineers, in general, again with the same idea that less experienced engineers are more malleable and with proper guidance and training can more easily integrate into their culture.
Well, here’s how this benefit will help you with this. At EMI, we’ve spent many years building content channels including our podcasts, The Civil Engineering Podcast, and The Structural Engineering Channel podcast and our latest, The Geotechnical Engineering Podcast.
Who listens to civil engineering related podcasts? Well, motivated civil and structural engineers, from students to new managers and beyond. Therefore, we have a huge platform, putting us in the ears and minds of thousands of motivated professionals in civil engineering, and if you select this service of the collective, we will put your firm in front of these motivated professionals in different ways.
- We are developing a JOB BOARD that you’ll be able to list positions on that will be broadcast to our followers regularly through all of our content channels including our weekly newsletter that goes out to over 20,000 engineers.
- You’ll be mentioned on our CIVIL ENGINEERING MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK and in our weekly newsletter to over 20,000 engineers.
- We are creating partnerships with TOP ENGINEERING SCHOOLS in the US and will be providing career guidance through webinars and remote panel discussions for students in these schools. Your firm would be a sponsor of these sessions and invited to participate when you can. A great opportunity for some of your young professionals to represent your firm in public in a STEM promotional setting, which will get your current staff excited. You’ll also be able to request that we put you in front of specific schools.
In short, not only will this benefit put you in front of many talented civil engineers and students, but these individuals are motivated, and we have access to a lot of them. You won’t find this kind of access to this many good engineers through a typical recruiter, and oh, by the way, just one hire through this service will save you more money than you would have paid a recruiter and possibly pay for your entire collective membership.
Strong firms are built around good people – let us help you find them.
