Waident Technology Solutions: IT Takes Back Seat to Soft Skills1 | 2 |
Evaluating Recent Graduates
It would be a first if Waident Technology Solutions hired someone fresh out of college. “That concept is on our radar, and it’s nothing we shy away from,” Ahlberg said. “We’ve just never [had] the opportunity to do that.”
The company is eager to pursue this avenue because of what it perceives as an advantage: Ahlberg’s assumption that recent graduates haven’t acquired any bad technology habits. “No college tells them that if anyone calls for help to say, ‘I’m too busy doing technology stuff,’” Ahlberg said.
A lack of sufficient experience shouldn’t deter a candidate’s chance of landing the job, Ahlberg said, because he can provide help for that.
