I maintain this blog because I passionately believe in something that isn’t obvious to everyone:
Employees with 0 – 5 years of experience can have more value than anyone in the organization
Of course this isn’t true immediately. But if you place the right person in the right environment, and give him strong, relevant training and mentoring, a junior employees can be worth well more than the cost of his entry-level salary and benefits.
I have spent many years recruiting, training, and working with young employees, and over time have developed a few thoughts and opinions of my own. I’m hoping not only to disseminate them through this blog, but to collect a few new ideas as well. I intend to focus on three areas:
- Getting the job you want
- Delivering value from Day One
- Choosing and planning the path for after year 5
