Re: Experience Or Not ...  

Hi NitwitNick, 

To be honest, I would give this company a miss anyway. They are clearly trying to get cheap (non-experienced) staff, but with a compromise of having a degree. The reality is (and god knows I have hired enough people over the years), that degrees mean nothing in the real world of working. Experience is everything. 

Unless a graduate can show me that they are really keen to learn, I tend to avoid them. Partly because I have bad experiences with hiring graduates - including one who thought he was interviewing for my role ! But also because they don't seem to often want to learn.  Maybe, I have just been unlucky, but I just don't have good experiences with them. Give me someone with experience any day.
