Why a coding school graduate tends to be a great hire for your company
Many times I've written about how you can hire someone without a degree, with 15 years of experience, and have someone that can run circles around a new graduate out of college. I've never written about why you should consider hiring a coding school graduate to work for your company, so I thought it was time for this type of discussion
Hiring a newly graduated college student to work on your design or scripting can actually be a good thing for various reasons. The can bring a younger point of view into your company, they bring in some diversity, they are eager as well as dedicated, they are willing to take some risks, and above all, they are loyal to your company for giving them a chance. Below I'll cover most of those points
They bring diversity into your business
When hiring a newly graduated coding student, you're bringing in a younger generation who is cutting their teeth in the industry, and they will boost the diversity within your employee pool since they're younger and see things from a different perspective.
You can hire programmers with 15 years of experience, but they're usually older people that have been working for companies all over the world, or they're so used to being a freelancer that they don't work well with teams. A younger person, someone with much less experience can be molded to fit your business much easier than a more experienced person, which is a good reason to hire young talent and keep them around for a while.
They're eager and dedicated
Someone just out of school might have wracked up a lot of debt from school bills and tuition, so they're eager to work and pay that off in order to get a new car or house later on. They'll be dedicated to your business, work long hours, and always help you out with what you need to be done because they need the money.
They can get a promotion if they just put in the time, and they know this, so they will dedicate themselves to the company and try to make it better than it currently is.
They're willing to take risks on something
Younger programmers haven't established themselves in the world of design or marketing so they're more willing to take chances. They likely have a bunch of ideas in their head but lack the funding, so they are a great source of ideas for your next project that you can have them lead.
They will take the risks, program the scripts, design the code, and do anything that needs to be done in order to be successful. You might not be able to do all of these things because you're set in your ways or you can't risk your company like that, so this is one of the better reasons to bring on young talent.
They're loyal to your company
When you hire someone right out of college or university, they will be loyal to your company because you may have been the only one that gave them a chance. I have a friend who applied to 20 companies and only got accepted to work with one of them, and he has been there for 10 years and always talks about how they were the only ones who gave him a chance, and now he makes $250,000 a year since he got in early and stayed loyal to the company.
I always think that hiring a seasoned veteran who's been working instead of learning at college is better than hiring someone right out of college, but that's just my point of view since I don't have a degree and I'm biased lol. Hiring a freshly graduated college student has many benefits, such as company loyalty and dedication because you gave them a chance, and they will likely take some risks that you can't in order to push the business towards better success
