Employment trends among the Millennials (Gen-Yers) include increased likelihood to pursue relocation than other age groups as well as a likelihood to view free agency and a portable portfolio of skills and abilities as a very acceptable form of career-building (this according to the October 2, 2011, issue of Human Resource Executive). In other words, 20- and early 30-somethings aren’t as enamored of the 30-year career in the ivory tower as their parents and grandparents may have been. Watch for these upstart movers and shakers to pave new paths to career management success in the decade ahead. This demographic will have exponential career opportunity a decade or two from now–when the Baby Boomers *finally* decide to retire from the workforce! In fact, there will be huge shortages in many disciplines as the numbers of workers entering or in the workforce will be significantly fewer than the number of those exiting.
