"Search for "looking for a new opportunity" or variations of that (searching/seeking | position/challenge etc.) - they often put it into the professional headline. Of course, you also need to filter for position/industry."

Are employers balking at Generation Y candidates?

Generation Y is nearly as big as baby boomers, and since Yers started entering the workforce, this new cohort has been raising eyebrows. To be sure, your typical Gen Yer is very technologically savvy, resourceful, self-confident (uninhibited by the self-doubt of the older generations) and up to any challenge. They are creative, learn quickly and are not shy about contributing their opinions and suggestions.But these revered aptitudes and attitudes come as a package deal. And the rest of the…See More
