We all can agree on one point, fresh minds can help you see things differently, and maybe even come up with something you thought was not very possible.
A lot of companies demand hiring experienced employees, ones with at least 2 years of experience in a specific domain. This cannot be totally wrong, as many jobs require expertise. But at the same time, we cannot be afraid or try to avoid hiring fresh graduates. They are exactly who we need when we are looking to hire great employees. Why you ask? Before I state the basic reasons, I would like to say that choosing to hire fresh minds in your company motivates youth and shows them that you believe in them.
As for the more “technical” reasons:
A fresh perspective
Fresh graduates directly means a new and blooming perspective. A different angle helps at spotting mistakes and gives a point of view that might lead to improving an idea.
The younger are filled with dedication
The newer ones in the working field are usually those with a more serious attitude. They are still new to all of this and need to give all they’ve got and learned to prove how capable they are. Their excitement towards their job shows dedication and room for development.
Let’s face it, “the younger” are more up-to-date on technology than the older ones, maybe not all, but that’s the general case. So again, hiring a fresh grad means bringing in a mind with more information on the most recent technology, thus advanced techniques for solutions and getting things done.
The adaptable ones
The best part about working with young and fresh employees is, they are great and very quick learners. You also have the full ability of molding their working and thinking skills to adapt to your own system.
At the end of the day, experience does not build itself up, it takes a first step along with many more years to come. Youth, fresh graduates, need opportunities to prove themselves. It is our job to provide them with that first step into their career path.
