Life@ADP Season 2 Episode 2: No One Ever Forgets Their First Job.
And…caps off, class of 2022, congratulations!
For rising seniors, it’s your turn to walk across the stage next year. Not sure about where to begin your career? Are you looking for a place to grow and apply learned knowledge? We recorded a podcast episode for you.
Our hosts invited Lisa S., Senior Director of Talent Acquisition, on the most recent podcast episode to share insights for undergraduates and master’s students looking for an internship before entering the professional world.
ADP Recruiters at Campus Recruiting Event
In the podcast episode, Lisa introduced the Global Product and Technology Development Program, a training program designed for students to connect and learn from tech professionals at ADP.
“The students will go through a full-time, ten-week internship program with us in the summer. They will get an opportunity to work on meaningful projects, delivering results to showcase if they are a good fit for our organization,” said Lisa. “We have an amazing opportunity for software engineering and computer science major students.”
The goal of the internship is to convert the students to full-time hires through Global Product and Technology Development Program, a six-week training to begin their career at ADP. You will also hear Lisa’s advice for candidates attending fall campus recruiting events. Listen to the full episode now.
Here are three tips from our campus recruiters:
#1 Add Keywords to your Resumes
Make sure you read every job description carefully and select the exact keywords for your resumes. Using the same keywords will make your profile stand out, recognizing a match and listing you as a top match.
#2 Practice your 30-second Elevator Pitch
You may only have 30 seconds to make a first impression, so come prepared! What defines you? What are your strengths? What roles are you interested in learning? Your elevator pitch will help recruiters remember who you are and what you are looking for in the company.
#3 Do Your Research
Recruiters know when you’ve done your homework! Come with a list of questions to show your interest. Make sure to view the current job openings and register (if any) before attending an event.
Apply these tips as you prep for the upcoming recruiting events. If you attend this year’s Grace Hopper Celebration, bring a copy of your resume, and stop by ADP’s booth. Let’s connect!
