I was reading a news story about Gen X being hit hard by the dot com bust and now again by this latest economic downturn. I realized then that I had no clue if I was a Gen X kid or not, so I asked a friend (whom I was sure would know the correct answer) and apparently I am Gen Y! One online search said Gen Y was from 1981 to 2001, but the wikipedia entry says 1977-2000, either way, I am definitely Gen Y.
I decided to do a little google research to find out more about Gen Y and came across this great article from 2005 about Gen Y entering the workforce, which is exactly the year I graduated college and joined the ranks of the corporate world. It’s a great article, so although 4 years old, you should read it.
