As employers we’ve all been faced with difficulty in hiring new employees. From not knowing whether the new person will be able to function successfully and synergize with your other workers. To having to spend money in order to train them to work efficiently, hiring a new worker can be an extremely difficult task. Here are some of the benefits of hiring a student versus hiring a graduate for your business.
When considering hiring a student versus a graduate we must recognize that students are often more eager to learn because learning is how they’ve been taught to function throughout life. Many students are very versatile, especially after their first year of college in which they are exposed to new and different curriculums. Thus making them more quick to absorb new information and use it correctly. This is a huge benefit for businesses that want to minimize costs on employee training. Lowering costs while bringing in more efficient work is something all businesses should strive to do, by hiring students they would be accomplishing that.
Another benefit of hiring a student would be the fact that have access to a large network of peers. Because graduates have become alumni from their universities they may not have as large of a networking pool as those still in college, and industries that rely on promotion and marketing in order to gain exposure benefit greatly from hiring students. Graduates will also be seeking jobs that pay high wages, frequently denying minimum wage jobs thus making currently enrolled students more valuable for small businesses.
Lastly, it is more beneficial to hire students as they’re more likely to grow with the business. If a student receives a part-time job during the beginning of their freshman year and continues to work until graduation, they will have gained all of the skills required to bring income to the business. To find students you’d like to hire feel free to post a job on HireOwl today!

Every summer thousands of students suffer with the task of battling through job interviews, awkward networking, and fierce competition for opportunities for employment. This summer make it easier on yourself and earn some money by working as one of these 3 positions!
Many companies seek summer time interns and in our advancing society it’s becoming more commonplace to find internship positions that actually pay for your work. Whether it’s traveling to Boston or New York City, or just working at your local accounting firm, many businesses seek interns and are willing to pay more than minimum wage. Interning may seem difficult at first but it provides a chance to kickstart your career and if you do a great job could land you a permanent spot in the business.
So you’ve just finished submitting that last eight page paper as your final and you don’t want to look at another writing assignment until next year. That’s okay but there is a whole other world out there that you haven’t explored yet! By writing about your favorite sports teams, bands, or television shows you can get paid a lot for the content you produce. Learning a little bit about SEO or Search Engine Optimization you can gain the tools you need to write for any company you’d like. Freelance writing allows you to use your now learned expertise in writing in college to make you money. A lot of students use their summer to pursue freelance writing which not only gives them a steady source of income, but also improves their writing.
Now this may seem like a position that will require you to sit long hours at a telephone answering easy questions but it’s not! Most customer support jobs allow you to travel around your city helping those who need it the most, and any successful business from large to small needs a good customer service team to help out. Whether it be electronically by filing paperwork, or in person by helping solve difficult problems customer service positions are usually a good entry-level position that allows you to make a stable income during the summer.
Hopefully some of these positions seemed appealing to you and helped you find inspiration for a job this summer. If you want to see if these positions are available in your local neighborhood feel free to sign-up for HireOwl, submit your resume, and search away.
