How do you attract high achievers? The latest research from Universum uncovers the career ambitions and expectations of students and recent graduates from the world’s top 200 universities, to examine how graduating students of these top schools feel about careers and ideal employers. Our analysis also explores how High Achievers differ from their peers at other universities. How do these students think differently? What drives them and what does this mean for employers?

Universum’s 2016 Future Talent Insights Series investigates the attitudes and behaviors of Millennials finishing their university studies. Made up of eight separate eBooks (four industry specific reports and four special releases), the FTIS explores and answers among other questions:

  • What career goals do recent graduates prioritize?
  • What specific qualities matter most about an employer’s reputation?
  • What type of work environment and culture do recent graduates seek out?
  • Which channels do students value most when researching future employers and jobs?

On an annual basis Universum gathers insights on the career expectations of one million career-seekers from 55 countries. With this perspective, the Future Talent Insights Series analyzes the responses of  students from universities across the world. How does top talent think and behave differently, and what are the implications for employers trying to court them?

For employers aiming to hire university graduates, the Future Talent Insights Series offers direction about how to:

  • Define talent attraction strategy
  • Position employer branding
  • Plan what internal changes are needed to create a more attractive work environment for young professionals
  • Help executives understand how to customize messages by market

First one out in the series is about High Achievers: Are they really that different?

In the first of eight reports that make up this year’s Talent Insight Series, we analyze the career ambitions and expectations of students and recent graduates from the world’s top 200 universities and examine whether these high achievers are really that different from average students.
