Rethinking hiring practices to appeal to young candidates
BUFFALO, N.Y. (The Buffalo News) — How can employers attract young job candidates?

Part of the solution lies in updating the ways employers try to connect with young people, and removing barriers to hiring, said Stephanie Peete, director of workforce development for Say Yes Buffalo.
Peete was part of a recent panel, presented by the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, about attracting "next generation" talent. Grant Loomis, the Partnership's vice president of government affairs and economic development, said demographic trends make the topic a pressing one.
