In today’s highly competitive job market, companies want to find and retain the best talent possible. Companies are reticent to take chances on new, less experienced talent for many reasons. According to a 2016 PayScale survey, 60 percent of companies did not believe recent college grads were prepared to enter the workforce. But, this year, 74 percent of employers said they would hire recent college grads.
It’s still hard for college grads to find new jobs, especially employment in their field of study. But, companies can find a promising return on investment (ROI) by hiring and leveraging the talent of recent college graduates.
