Overview


They make up nearly one-third of all Americans living today. Born after 1980, they're now pouring into the work world with values, aspirations, and approaches that differ markedly from their parents--and coworkers. They're Generation Y.

In Plugged In, Tamara Erickson shows Gen Y's how to use their own unique strengths to understand and influence their professional relationships, to figure out how they define "success," and to help them find their way in the changing workplace.

Filled with Erickson's extensive research into demographic trends and thoughtful insights, Plugged In gives Gen Y's the information they crave to connect with the working world and to craft the lives they want.

The author reveals:
· A framework Y's can use to develop their own criteria for making career choices
· The unique assets and strengths Y's bring to the workplace
· How X'ers and Boomers view Generation Y and how the different generations can collaborate more effectively at work
· 10 rules that can help Generation Y's succeed in the corporate world

With her trademark warmth and liveliness, Erickson provides a thoughtful, valuable guidebook for the latest newcomers on the corporate scene.

    Great Book for Gen Y

    This is a great book. Its an easy, interesting read that doesnt take up much of Gen Y's precious time. As a member of Gen Y, this book was very helpful to me and I highly recommend this book. If you are a parent of a person born between 1980-2005, purchase this book for them this holiday season!

    My owl is named Morpheus. Hes a mottled brown and black and gray and white Great Gray owl who likes to sing(or hoot) various songs. Depending on the song,you either go to sleep or become sleepy.
