So you need to make some new hires and you are considering your options. You might feel apprehensive about hiring fresh graduates because of a lack of professionalism or a lack of experience in the working world. But, in fact, the benefits of hiring a new grad far outweigh any potential pitfalls.
Why you should be hiring fresh graduates
One of the great benefits of hiring a recent graduate is the eagerness and willingness to learn that they invariably bring to the table. After many years of study, graduates are often very excited to be entering the world of work and to learn new skills in a different kind of environment. They will absorb everything that you teach them like a sponge and they will be able to perform work tasks with a kind of vigor that might be lacking in a more experienced professional. It is better to hire someone with a willingness to learn who will put their best food forward with every task than a highly experienced and knowledgeable person who is work shy.
A new graduate will also have a greater deal of work flexibility. With experience comes stubbornness. An employee who has worked many years on the job can think there is only one right way of getting the job done and may be unwilling to try new working methods. Every business owner knows that to succeed in business, an organization cannot be static. A new graduate has the flexibility to move with your organization as it tries new things.
