“The battle for the best talent has always been going on among car manufacturers.

Competitive advantages are secured by those who create positive contact points with young talents in their studies at an early stage.

This is not only shown in our daily work according to the early branding method, but also proven by various studies:

In the fight for the best talent and specialists, companies have to get in touch with their target group

before they even think about their future job.

Data-based marketing is a valuable tool here.

Those who are already targeting first-year students and the graduates of tomorrow have the better cards when it comes to recruiting later, ”says Cecil von Croÿ, CEO and co-founder of charly media.
