Therefore, enterprises that want to talk to Generation Y are well advised to get acquainted with their behaviour patterns – and it is best to do so during the recruiting process.

It is in this place where a job offer will get the most attention among young people and will be disseminated. Furthermore, a suitable tender should consider the need of information of Generation Y: profiles of superiors and colleagues, 360-degree views of the workplace, establishing topic-related groups or the embedding into Google Maps and Street View – the interactive web offers many opportunities.
