Only one percent of recruiters say the name of your college and your GPA are main factors when hiring new college graduates. Korn Ferry Futurestep asked 1,500 professionals about their businesses’ hiring plans in a new survey. Troy Steele, a college recruiting expert at Korn Ferry Futurestep, said, “There are still some organizations that want to focus on elite schools and GPAs, but that’s trending away.” The grad’s college major was a top factor for only three percent of respondents. Over 60 percent said that “passion” and “drive” were the top factors when hiring. If you are willing to relocate for a job position, contact Jobs Across The World.
