I am one of the biggest fans of and work regularly with Gen Y. I love your spunk, spirit, capabilities, and point of view. You have taught me so much and are changing and impacting so many aspects of marketing, business, and consumerism. You are the future torch bearers and are making your presence known more and more. Having said that, I do believe you are relying way too much on the technologies you have grown up with for more interpersonal activities that are much better suited for job search today. It’s really not your fault. That’s the world you have grown up in. I am a Boomer and grew up in the world of meeting people in person face-to-face, and through phone conversations to build relationships and trust. I have had to get much more tech and social media savvy to stay on top of my game.
