I'm super-impressed with how the consulting company I'm subbing through on my current gig deals with this. They hire 2-3 fresh graduates per year and they work on internal projects for a year before they send them out in the field. One of those kids (he's 21) is on my project as his first gig in the field and is doing AMAZING work. He needs plenty of mentoring (that was specifically asked of me as part of my responsibilities in this case), but a really sharp kid eager to learn and work hard. Hell, I asked him to document the existing API we're supposed to stay backward-compatible with as part of our scope and he put together a cross-referenced 50 page document in 2 days. I've watched people with 5+ years take WEEKS to do similar (and fail to actually deliver in the end). There are some doing the right thing, but they're few and far between.
Damn you. You made me go and buy another CD. You tell me about it and then he has to have samples to tempt me and make me buy. It's a bloody conspiracy.
