This might be harsh for some to hear, and there’s no easy way to say it, so here it goes: I don’t think you should hire junior designers.

Awkward silence. Does he mean that? Did he say what I think he said? Is he forgetting once he was a junior too?

Well, yeah… I don’t really mean don’t hire junior designers at all. I mean don’t hire them if you’re not prepared. Don’t hire them if you haven’t got a proper support system in place and a desire and time to hone raw talent.
