As HR and talent acquisition leaders, we are always looking for cost effective and creative ways to make your recruiting dollars go the extra mile. The market for best in class experienced candidates will remain extremely competitive as unemployment rates continue to drop, which leaves many companies looking to new options to fill their hiring needs. Because of this an increasing number of companies are adjusting their work environments in order to attract and train professionals, especially those who have recently graduated from colleges and universities, in an effort to develop raw talent. Inexperienced recent grads can provide a clean slate that a savvy employer can mold into a fantastic employee over time. If you’re serious about looking to recent graduates to fill your hiring needs, consider these four tips to raise the odds of finding long term success with your hire.Leverage Inexperience to Your AdvantageRecent grads are hungry to gain experience, and they also know that their lack of it is their biggest downside. Find tasks or areas of a job that don’t require the new hire to have a wealth of previous experience, but do require that they learn and adapt quickly. Based off how the new hire tackles these tasks you can gain insight into how they would likely learn and perform over time. What’s more, jobs that don’t demand a lot of experience can easily start as low-cost internships and turn into full time opportunities, giving the company the benefit of screening future job candidates on-the-job to get a feel for how they work.Get the Right Culture Fit FirstWhen recruiting recent grads remember you aren’t hiring solely for experience. Focus instead on interviewing and assessing the right personality to fit into your company culture with the end goal of interns becoming permanent full time employees. By looking for a good culture fit, you get to train the candidate exactly how you’d like so they can learn about the business from the ground up. You will build a candidate pipeline and peace of mind knowing you have a candidate who has already proven him/herself and is familiar with your company culture and team, and the candidate will be trained exactly as needed to make sure they thrive in their role. By matching the goals and personality first, you also have a better chance of retaining people longer, simply because they like the organization and know they are supported as a professional.Give a project to them and see how they receive feedback.If you’re still wary of hiring someone with little experience, don’t be afraid to test them with a small project. This can be sent to them via email or hand delivered after an interview. Provide them with a time constraint that would be similar to a current employee (but not too strict, they are likely full time applying and won’t have all day to work on it, a two hour turn around isn’t enough) and see how their work comes in. Does it seemed rushed and sloppy? Is it incomplete and without critical thought? It’s up to you to determine what the most important factors you’re looking for are and how you want to score the project. Just remember that you’re not always looking for the candidate who does it perfectly, but for the candidate that holds the most raw- potential and ability to bring the most long term value to the table.Schedule Your Feedback.Schedule a focused time on engaging and sitting down with recent grads and those you are most interested in hiring, recruiting, promoting and developing especially when it comes to transitioning those interns to permanent positions with your company.While it can be a scary proposition to hire a college graduate with little experience, the upside can be tremendous if you need to scale your team quickly and on a budget. Be sure to give your recruiting efforts real thought ahead of time so you know exactly what type of person you are looking for, and most importantly, what type of company you are. Use this information to formulate a profile of the type of person you’re looking for, the candidate “must haves”, and what type of exercises you think would best convey if the potential hire has the skills you need. It’s not a perfect science, but by keeping these three tips in mind when looking for a new, recent graduate hire, you’ll significantly up the odds of finding someone great that’s ready to join and make an immediate and noticeable impact.
Jamaicans can look forward to more satisfactory redress for breaches of their consumer rights, when the Consumer Protection Tribunal comes into being in July.Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, says the tribunal has become necessary, as when complaints are made to the Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC), investigations are carried out, but the agency’s ability to impose a remedy is limited.“This has proven to be frustrating for the consumer, who having had his or her rights breached, found that there was very little in the way of remedy, unless it rose to a level of significance that would attract the attention of the Fair Trading Commission, and of course that involved, in many instances, litigation. It was important to find a balance between the outright legal system and the purely advocacy role that the CAC plays,” he explained.In light of this, the Minister said changes were made to the Consumer Protection Act to establish a tribunal, which provides the possibility of remedies for breaches of consumer rights.The Minister was speaking on Wednesday, May 15, at a Jamaica House press briefing, which was hosted at the Office of the Prime Minister, by Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer.Mr. Hylton said that as a quasi judicial body, the tribunal will provide outcomes, and decisions will be made in a more formal setting.“So, it will have the look and feel of a judicial proceeding, but the rules will be different – more in the nature of an administrative hearing,” he elaborated.Meanwhile, the CAC is to be relocated from Old Hope Road to the Half-Way Tree area, which the Minister said will be more easily accessible for citizens.There will also be structural changes, such as expansion of the role of consumer advocates, allowing for information to be gleaned on a wider scale. “One way to achieve that in this period of constraint, is to look at a role for the citizen advocate,” he said. Currently, this activity is carried out by CAC staff.Contact: Alphea Saunders

2 min read September 18, 2014 As celebrated entrepreneurs like Richard Branson and Elon Musk continue to make highly-publicized bids for space travel, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos just scored a knockout contract of his own.Bezos, who founded the notoriously tight-lipped aerospace company Blue Origin in 2000, has announced a new partnership with the United Launch Alliance (ULA) — a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing that provides spacecraft to the U.S. government.As part of the four-year contract, Blue Origin will produce a special engine, the BE-4 — which has spent three years in development, according to CNET — for the ULA’s Alta and Delta rocket lines. The ULA then supplies these rockets to the U.S. Department of Defense and NASA.The partnership marks a brand new day for the ULA, which previously relied on Russian-made engines — a relationship that has become strained as the U.S. has heightened Russian sanctions given political unrest in Ukraine, according to CNET.Related: A Poor, Sleepy Border Town Just Won Billionaire Entrepreneur Elon Musk’s BusinessAnd Bezos’ contract is not the only move the U.S. space industry has made to cut ties with Russia. Yesterday, NASA announced a combined $6.8 billion worth of contracts to Boeing and Musk’s SpaceX outfit — both of whom will now shuttle astronauts to and from the International Space Station, located in low earth orbit. These services were formerly provided exclusively by Russian rockets.NASA aims to end partnerships with Russia by the end of 2017, according to CNET.While Blue Origin’s new deal brings Bezos’ aerospace efforts to the forefront — he is rumored to have spent roughly $500 million of his own money on the initiative, which has no affiliation with Amazon, according to Space News — the announcement is likely to heat up competition in a rapidly evolving field.In vying for the lease of a newly available launchpad last year, for instance, Musk famously snapped that Blue Origin was so incapable of developing a “reliable suborbital spacecraft” that “we are more likely to discover unicorns dancing in the flame duct.”Related: Buzz Aldrin on the Future of Space Travel: ‘Get Your Ass to Mars!’ Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
