Gen Yer? Stand out in your job search by bucking the stereotypes about you. This is a guest post by Kirsten Fife. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines. First off, I want to be transparent. I’m a member of GenX. That being said, my own career and resume are much more reflective of current GenY statistics, something which has actually helped *me* professionally so I tend to be more more forgiving of short work stints although this is not the norm. I recruit in the technology sector, which is generally much more in “tune” with the younger workforce. But there are some stereotypes about GenY that are based on truisms that are giving young professionals a bad rap.
