Difference between junior and senior professionals in the company
The terms Junior and Senior are simply labels given by recruiters or human resources (HR) at company level to distinguish two professional figures. In other words, simplifications used by recruiters and personnel managers to distinguish professional resources at the level of experience in well-defined “perimeters”.
Usually the labeling takes place on the basis of years of work experience:
- Junior less than 2-3 years of experience in a certain professional field (even a new graduate with no experience is hired as a junior in the company as he generally has no practical experience in the field he will be working in);
- Senior over 2-3 years (sometimes even 5) of experience in a certain professional field.
It should be noted, however, that experience cannot be measured in hours / months / years or rather this type of classifications are not so reliable because the experience varies based on the resource and its basic training so it is absolutely necessary to be wary of those who take them too seriously.
