Los chicos de la generación Y están en el foco de atención. Hoy un artículo publicado en The Wall Street Journal resalta la impaciencia que demuestran estos jóvenes para escalar promociones en el ámbito laboral:
Twentysomethings are accustomed to meeting short-term goals in schools with quarter and semester systems. They expect to see results on the job just as quickly and when they don’t, impatience sets in. The disgruntled say that they don’t necessarily want more money, they want stimulating assignments that give meaning to their lives.
De hecho, el artículo reseña las experiencias de jóvenes que ante la insatisfacción han tomado control de sus carreras por otras rutas como el caso de Ryan Paugh:
Ryan Paugh, 23, is already concerned that he’s wasting his life at his first full-time job. In January, the Flemington, N.J., resident started working as a contractor, with no benefits, in the communications department of a Fortune 500 company. Frequently, he finishes a day’s work in three hours, he says. “You feel really useless.” Up until recently, Mr. Paugh asked for more work from his boss every other day. “Once in a while they hand something off,” he says. Now he doesn’t ask so much.
