Gen Y is coming on the scene and you better get to know them if you are in recruiting. This group is now 18 – 32 years old and they are 60 million strong.
Not the 77 million of the baby boomers but still a very significant driver of the economy. The heavy concentration of third party recruiting activity is on those who are upwardly mobile in their careers. That’s going to be Gen Y for a while.
More importantly, a lot of the growth of the 80s and 90s was credited to the size of the Baby Boom Generation moving through their most productive and highest spending years. But this is a really big group too, and they are going to have a solid impact on business and recruiting.
