No not at all.
There is no suggestion of age. Graduation can and does occur at any
age. Perhaps you should consider why you see differently? Do you
yourself believe that graduation is only for the young? How many
people of all ages do you know well?

The mention of recent graduation is clearly because inexperience in
the job tasks is no problem - the message later includes the offer of
one to one learning experience in a real world situation. The
graduation need would make awareness of principles likely, and
hopefully efficient communication. Good communication would be
important because the need is to reduce the load on the enquirer, and
poor communication would be counterproductive.

It sounds like a great opportunity for someone with a need for a job
and a positive approach.
