best practices for Gen Y

Steven has a great post on
Nine Best Practices for Recruiting Gen Y

Here are some of my thoughts...

1. This is a generation that has very less boundaries between private and public information. They share information faster than any other generation. Is the corporate world ready to engage with that reality. Or would they rather try to change their thinking, which is going to be a futile effort, IMHO.

2. In India, this generation at least is not wary about following its dreams, and often treat the seldom beaten path (like Sidin, Prash and Samit) . How would a "job" need to be 're-sculpted' to suit their diverse talents?

And remember, Gen Y is only a precursor to the true digital natives. How are you planning for them?
