Bringing a new collge grad into the IT world

Bringing a new collge grad into the IT world

Bringing a new collge grad into the IT world

I have been granted the task of bringing a new hire direct from college into our IT world. This new hire is not, from what I am aware of, very familiar with programming with the exception of some html, and we will be training the user in Powerbuilder 9 initially.

Our company has never really had a process for bringing recent college grads in, as they have, up until now, only done it once.

What I am looking for would be a little advice on how one would start bringing someone with little IT experience into this world. What would you expect the user to be able to do after the first week or two?

I intend to sit down with him, and go over business processes, find out what he really does know about development, and really hit the basics of our environment, but it would be good to have an idea of what some others would do, have done, and what their experiences have been.

Any help will be appreciated.
