Hiring managers unimpressed by newest college grads

by on

It might take longer than you expected to weed through the new crop of college graduates in your search for the best entry-level employees. In a survey by Adecco Staffing US, 66% of hiring managers said they’re finding freshly degreed applicants to be unprepared for the workplace.

In fact, 58% of them said they’re not going to consider this year’s grads when filling positions this year.

Rookie mistakes hiring managers say they’re seeing from recent grads:

  • Weak résumés riddled with spelling errors—the gaffe managers cited most often
  • An inability to clearly answer questions or articulate their skills and experience during interviews
  • Checking phones and texting during interviews
  • Fidgeting, lack of eye contact
  • Posting comments about job interviews on social networks.
