The college years was all about sleeping in and playing Madden 9 hours a day. Some poor students had to work while others lounged around the dorm waiting to party around midnight. Life was easy except for the occasional projectile vomit moments.

I work with a bunch of trendy IT Nerds. They are the new crop of Java programming Gen-Y geeks that have replaced the old Baby Boomer Cobol Dorks .

Meanwhile, Gen X Nerds are moving into management roles. Now it’s their turn to be the CTO. “Get out the Hell outa here!” They’re constantly shouting at Gen Y workers.

The Gen Y Geeks are the worst to recruit. They don’t and I mean DON’T give a rip about starting a career. They are completely fine living in the parent’s garage too.

The reason why I bring this up because we have about 1 month before the Fall Grads hit the most competitive job market ever.

Don’t even bother asking Gen Y Geeks about their GPA. Their GPA was probably more like 2.3 and not a 3.2. Dude, that is why they are an expert at Guitar Hero. Come on!

And, you are going to interview one of these pampered pimple foosball beer pong playing Gen Y geeks for a job. After the interview you might shout, “Get the Hell outta here!”

This is exactly the reason why young blood nowadays is preferred over the Gen Y, They are not just energetic or with higher GPAs, but they have the courage to take risks and grow the business faster. They dont prefer being pampered, rather they are more liberal and enjoy working in freedom with powers to take decisions. Every new generation produces better talent to beat the existing.
