While we find ourselves unable to get recruiters to call us back, organizations are tripping over themselves to hire kids fresh out of college. In fact, there is a job board just for this and it is open only to students.
I have been wondering what the fascination with youth over experience is as I see these kids leave college making more to start than I do (with a master's degree, 18 year's experience, and a professional role).
Some questions I have are:
--With starting salaries like these, do you see that they are any less expensive?
--Do you think they are thought of as brighter, more up-to-date, etc...?
--Are they less expensive to the organization with regard to healthcare coverage?
What else can it be? Ageism..?
