How Do You Solve The Problem of Recruiting Gen Z?

Published on

It’s the Age-Old Question.


Okay, so maybe it’s only 8 to 23 years old, but it’s an important one.
Hiring Gen Z has become a conundrum many recruiters are struggling to grasp.

We’ve almost got the toe-in on Millennials (the older of whom will retire in about 25 years). But Gen Z is a whole new can of worms to tackle.

William Tincup, President of RecruitingDaily.com, has worked hand-in-hand with the generational divide, and he’s agreed to give you 60 minutes of live training and Q&A that will drive you into the wilds of Generation Z.



So what do we REALLY understand about Gen Z ?
That they’re an entire generation of folks who have been tech savvy since the day they rode home in their ergonomic car seats, complete with Baby Genius VR Headsets , of course.

They are also the future.



Gen Z = incredible human beings. We dare you to wait and see.
And as they grow, we will live under an umbrella of rules foreign to the Millennial generation before them.

They don’t answer their phones.
They thrive on individualistic concepts.
A 10-year-old Gen Z’er probably understands your business plan better than you do.
What you’re doing now will not work very soon.
They are brilliant for business.


We’ve got more.
Who are they? What do they want?

How do they think? What makes them tick?

And how the heck are you supposed to recruit them?



Don’t worry – Gen Z doesn’t bite (most of the time).
And William has a few answers that will make your job a lot easier in the decades to come.

See you on the webinar.

  4. 4. The Expert William Tincup, SPHR, SHRM SCP President
  5. 5. The Agenda Millennials Gen Z Differences Takeaways Q&A Contact William
  6. 6. Millennials
  7. 7. What is a millennial? • The majority of researchers and demographers start the generation in the early 1980s, with some ending the generation in the mid- 1990s • Let's say 1980 to 1995 • Oldest Millennial = 38 years old • Youngest Millennial = 23 years old
  8. 8. Millennials: General Recruiting Principles • Transparency means something • Brutal feedback • Careerpathing • Training • Praise • Texting beats email
  9. 9. Millennials: Transparency & Feedback Transparency • Problem: Candidates want to know what the job, the company, the culture, and the values are about • Solution: Recruiters must be prepared to have (excruciatingly) robust & honest conversations Feedback • Problem: Candidates aren’t made out of porcelain. If the suck, they want to be told. • Solution: Recruiters MUST be brutally honest with their candidates.
  10. 10. Millennials: Careerpathing & Training Careerpathing • Problem: Candidates have a “what’s next” mentality. • Solution: Recruiters must be able to explain internal mobility (however that is defined). Training • Problem: Candidates want demand development of their skills. • Solution: Recruiters must be able to delve into the specifics of a training and development plan.
  11. 11. Millennials: Praise & Texting Praise • Problem: Candidates expect recruiters and hiring managers to openly discuss how they’ll praise and/or reward them. • Solution: Recruiters must be able to talk about total recognition. Texting • Problem: Candidates expect text messages and regular status updates. • Solution: Recruiters must ask, “You’re what’s important here, and I’ll defer to your communication style.
  12. 12. Millennials: Key Questions They Ask “What's next?” Simple question right. Well, you’d be surprised at how many recruiters and hiring managers can’t answer a simple “internal mobility” question during an interview. Millennials judge your response. If you fumble, they move on to a company that gets it. “How are you going to recognize/praise me?” Everyone likes to be praised at work. Everyone. Traditionally we’ve thought of “recognition” after the hire. With Millennials, that’s not an option. They want to know how you plan to praise them before they take the job. No praise plan, they walk. “How are you going to develop my skills?” Again, a simple question but one that recruiters don't have insight into talent development. Learning, training and development has historically happened AFTER the hire. Well, not so much anymore. If you can’t answer this question, you’re DOA.
  13. 13. Millennials: The Way They Research • Google: Oh snap, they research you. • Glassdoor: No really, they stalk you. • LinkedIn: They talk to your former employees. All that research is done before they apply to the gig. BEFORE they apply. Let that sink in.
  14. 14. Gen Z
  15. 15. What is GEN Z? • The majority of researchers and demographers start the generation in the mid-1990s, with some ending the generation in the late-2000s • Let's say 1995 to 2010 • Oldest Gen Z = 23 years old • Youngest Gen Z = 8 years old
  16. 16. GEN Z: About them • Digital • Visual • Entrepreneurial • Blurred • Individualistic
  17. 17. GEN Z: Digital • Cannot remember a world without the Internet • Touch computing - tablets from a young age • Voice computing - Siri & Alexa from a young age • Able to multi-task, more effectively - so sending emails, editing photos and writing reports can be completed simultaneously • They have strong technical skills, but they may lack certain soft skills • They think that it's okay for a 13-year-old to have a smartphone • They don't mind bots & SMS is normal • They've downloaded apps from a young age
  18. 18. GEN Z: Visual • They prefer communications that are visual • They like Instagram • They like Snapchat • They sniff out communications that are not authentic • They want to see your culture • They want to see other Gen Z'ers
  19. 19. GEN Z: Entrepreneurial • They have been raised with businesses such as Uber and Airbnb. • They see how easy and simple it is to use your own time and resources to make money. • They prefer work options a la the gig economy. • They want to start their work career, but is not ready to give up their personal life/beliefs in order to do that. • They respond to independence and purpose when looking for employers.
  20. 20. GEN Z: Blurred • Formerly distinct lines are now considered “blurred.” • Technology has blurred the lines between home and work. • Technology has blurred the lines between study and entertainment. • Technology has blurred the lines between and public and private. • They live and thrive in a blurred world.
