With concerns about candidate availability, is now an excellent time to hire someone with no previous experience? There are plenty of reasons to hire for potential, and you could even uncover top talent who would stay with you for years.
Here is why hiring someone with zero experience is worth it.
Someone looking for a job without any experience wants to learn. They are moldable and adaptable to your training and company culture. They don’t have bad habits learned from years of experience that they will bring to the table.
They’ll Bring in a Fresh Perspective
Sometimes all it takes is a new set of eyes on a problem. Someone without a lot of experience can still have insight into a persistent problem that can take the solution to the next level. They will also bring a new perspective on the workplace and ideas to do things more effectively.
They’re Engaged and Excited
Someone eager to start a career is excited about their experience. They will be engaged and want to learn what you have to teach them. That kind of enthusiasm can be contagious and positively affect the team around them.
They Help You Tap into Diversity
The truth is, a barrier to diversity in the workplace is often that people with diverse backgrounds don’t often have access to learning the industry. If you can tap into that potential, you can bring people in with various backgrounds.
