Finding the next superstar of your organization can be stressful and time-consuming. And in today’s economy, a single job posting can result in hundreds of resumes and applications.

How do you know who will be the best fit for your organization?

Some businesses place a high amount of importance on experience in the field when making a hiring decision. Traditionally, years of experience equaled results within an organization. This ideal has started to change as recent graduates have joined organizations with more skills and “experience”.  And they’re making a big impact.

Here are just a few of the top reasons to choose a recent grad over a seasoned pro:

They have more to prove.
Recent grads understand that they are lacking in traditional, hands-on experience. As a result, they are more likely to come in ready to make an immediate impact and mark on your organization. Who wouldn’t want to take advantage of having employees wanting to prove their value?

A fresh perspective.
Many businesses can get stuck in the proverbial rut. Recent college grads can offer a fresh perspective on old problems and processes, which can lead to dramatic impact or improvement within your organization.

They are willing to learn.
Seasoned professionals can tend to be set in their ways; and they may not even be aware of it. But, recent graduates come in with a keen willingness to learn. They did just come from college, after all! When you hire recent college grads, you’ll have an opportunity to help mold employees to adhere to your specific standards and practices – not try to change bad habits.

Their starting pay is typically lower.
This is a fairly obvious benefit, but a benefit nonetheless. As a general rule, a recent college graduate will cost your organization less than a five-year pro. In times of economic uncertainty, those savings matter.
