It’s at the top of the requirements section in every job description a recent college graduate sees. “Requiring at least one to two years’ experience.”
With so much passion and recently attained knowledge, young professionals often get booted to the side when it comes to filling positions in their desired field. We end up with a job at a retail store directly after college, or hold onto a profession that’s remotely related to our studies as we continue our tiresome job search.
Millions of students graduate annually with a Bachelor’s degree, and that means lots of fresh talent for those companies looking to hire. So why is a seasoned worker preferred over a recent college graduate? Young Professionals can be useful to your company as a fresh pair of eyes and insightfulness into how your office or business works. Often times, a mind unpolluted by the sections and divisions existent can bring unity to a workspace. Even more so, they can be molded and instructed to the employer’s liking. This fosters a culture that does not produce conflicts as a result of previous work experience or knowledge attained from previous employers on how an office should work.
Their Disposition to Technology
There is no denying that the millennials of both America and the world are more equipped to navigate their way through a tablet or Iphone than generations before them. According to a study conducted by Nielsen Consumers, this generation of young professionals is the largest division of smartphone consumers in the United States. With the world moving at a rapid pace technologically, employers must keep up with the trends that can lead their business and company in a more successful direction. A business must be aware of how to model itself through new social platforms that young professionals maintain stronger aptitude for.
Fostering Their Passion
Young professionals come out of their bachelors’ education not only hoping to secure a job, but also create a difference in their respective field. These graduates are high quality talents, able to work towards the vision of the respective company they interview for. The world changes and shifts politically, through economic growth and decline, and social divides; at the forefront of all these changes are the young professionals. They experience and understand firsthand the complications of such shifting dynamics through education and the planning of their respective futures. Employers looking to hire should turn towards young professional candidates as an opportunity for immense growth within their respective companies. Enlist and bring on board these bright minds that are surely designated to be leaders of your workspace, and leaders of tomorrow.
Is there really that much benefit in hiring a young professional? To hire a fresh and bright mind full of vigor, ready to take on the world with the knowledge they’ve accumulated? We need to hire young professionals because they are the future.
