Our campaign

Our team delivered a multi-faceted strategy to increase reach, target specific students and drive high-quality and relevant applicants to Volvo’s roles.

We were able to not only re-target students who had already searched for Volvo roles, but reach those who were also searching for other similar job types within the industry.

Activities included:

- Multiple targeted emails to students based on degree types

- Google retargeted advertising based on relevant searches across the platform

- Featured jobs for relevant keywords

Our targeted approach achieved high results, with more students than ever applying for Volvo’s roles through RateMyPlacement.
