MAN ONLY HIRES FRESH GRADS IN TECH, CAUSE THE OLD ONES ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH

As a technical manager from a top-tier tech MNC, I have made similar observations on the stark difference in quality of computer science graduates over time. Based on interview assessments, I can usually tell whether this person graduated before or after 2018.

The dumping ground phenomenon is indeed true.

I observed many who graduated before 2018 to have the attitude that they were in computer science only because they could not get into other courses. If they were in an industry like engineering where the demand/supply gap is not that intense, they will be jobless with the capabilities they posses.

I have told HR to not consider computer science people who graduated before 2018 unless they have worked in MANGA or other top tier American or Chinese firms.

There is no point to hire computer science graduates from that time unless they are really good when I can hire younger, more capable and cheaper fresher graduates.

My decision has never proven wrong so far and I’ve not been disappointed by the latest batches of computer science graduates.

Here are what netizens think:

  • This technical manager also graduated before 2018?? No?? We should not consider him for technical position too…. EOD there are people who are good in any batch of graduates. Stereotyping will keep you as a “manager” and not a leader….
  • If you’re indeed from a “top-tier” mnc, your HRBP would have replied you, the employee, that your request opens the company to discriminatory hiring practices.
  • so insulting and condescending. Truly frog in a well. Many of earlier CS grads are now CEO, CTO…. Senior managers.
  • Senior manager, economy not so good.. you may be the first to go 
  • Why hire local? Just get Better cheaper faster from overseas.
