Abstract

Some 251 staffing professionals were surveyed concerning experienced-versus-college hiring practices in their organizations. Results suggest that majority of positions requiring a college degree are filled with experienced workers. Experienced workers are evaluated more highly than new graduates on most characteristics, although new graduates are evaluated more highly on open-mindedness and willingness and ability to learn new things. Perceived success of experienced hiring is associated with greater use of effective recruitment sources, older workforces, and more competitive salary offers.
