Two worst parts of being a noob:
a) Learning how ships, skills, and fittings go together

Ideas:
1) Create a default training plan, per race/profession for noobs (show a hypothetical skills list, with links to purchase the skills from market, etc.). Put it in their training queue, have them pay isk to enable each skill in the list or something.
2) Pop-up lists for choice driven lists for ship fitting slots -> i.e., click on mid slot #1, get a pop up list of modules that can go there, with a subsequent pop up list of skills required, and links to purchase them.

b) Learning how Agents, NPC Corps, and Standings go together.

Ideas:
1) Maybe just need to do as others have suggested .... have more linked out mission/agent suggestions available presented at the end of the tutorial mission chains ... maybe describe a bit what the different Empire NPC corps do, and have them choose from a list of agent suggestions.

Give new players more things to do than mission running and mining.

I hear all the time from vets that new players can do this or that early on in their career. To this I call bull****. if a new player knew how to do those things, then they're probably not new.

Give them more clear things to do ingame.

Nothing can fix the fact that newbie doesn't know what all stuff he can do, it's about finding it out. It doesn't help to give more stuff when they don't know even 10% of stuff they can do at first place. I am not sure if it's trolling or not (trolol?) but I've seen growing numbers of whines about new player can't do this and that when there's maybe 100x stuff newbie can do nowadays compared to like 2007. And that good old I cannot do anything I have only 1mil sp.
