There's always new tech on the horizon and keeping track can sometimes be part of the full time job. Bearing this in mind, there are two overlooked advantages to hiring a team member straight out of education.
When hiring a young post grad, chances are they're already immersed in the tech world, a lot of the time they will have grown up with it. Referred to as digital natives, a lot of the new post grads have spent their entire life exposed to technology and the digital world. Having these advantages means they will have their finger on the pulse in terms of new and developing tech and trends.
The second advantage covers those that have just left education. During education in the tech digital sector there is a lot of exposure to rising tech trends and new tools. Since learning and researching these new tools and concepts is part of everyday life for these students they will carry that knowledge into their first job role as well.
You have the opportunity to mould an entry level employee into the kind of person that will fit your company culture and aims. Having little to no working experience mean they don’t have working habits developed yet. Bearing this is mind you can guide them into learning to work in a way that has worked for your company in the past.
An added bonus is that the employee will still be in the learning phase of their life. This means that a graduate employee can be more receptive to learning the processes KPI's. Think of them as a blank canvas!
