Job search across the generations
A lot is made of the supposedly superior skills of younger workers in the area of technology and in particular in the use of social media.
When it comes to job search, a recent survey by US based management consultants Millennial Branding looked at the online behaviours of three ‘generations’: Gen Y (aged 18-29 year olds), Gen X (30-47) and Baby Boomers (48-67).

In fact, all generations spend most of their time job searching online rather than offline, with Baby Boomers leading the use of online job boards. Social networks are also most popular with Baby Boomers who prefer LinkedIn over Facebook.
