According to a recent study conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, baby boomers and Gen Y grads may have more in common than you think. NACE's 2008 Graduating Student Survey shows little difference among Class of 2008 graduates and Class of 1982 graduates on questions related to work hours and tradeoffs between work and life commitments. Both groups were willing to give up free time to succeed in their careers.
However, today's graduates are more community-oriented than boomers, and are more concerned with ethical behavior of employers and economic security.
Are you a boomer? Do you agree with these results? How did you approach work when you graduated from college or left high school?
