According to an article in today's Financial Post, employers are starting to realize that younger employees are likely to leave for greener pastures much sooner than their elders.
The article, A generation to win or lose, quotes an executive search firm spokesperson who says that younger people (often referred to as Generation Y) move much more quickly from job to job than previous employees. The reason quotes is younger people are looking for more meaningful experiences in their workplaces. Some observers also claim that Generation Y employees are willing to work as hard as their parents.
Perhaps this phenomena will work to the advantage of older job seekers whose work history shows less movement and more successes than younger candidates?
