Newbie Power- why you shouldn’t underestimate them?

May 21, 2010 | |
Newbies may be taken for granted and be the go to person to get your paperwork faxed, photocopied and the runner for your three o clock latte fix.

They are new but they are smart.

Here’s why you might want to re-think:

•They lack the experience but boy they know how to communicate! Phone, twitter, gadgets they have it all and use it very successfully.
•They are fiercely competitive and know to market themselves
•If they seem lazy and not being upto the job, chances are you bore them and they have been secretly texting their friends about how their new office sucks.
•They are the decision makers- about their career. You control the project but if they don’t like what they see, they quit .
•Chances are they are a brand and know how to build one better than anyone else.
•They have age on their side- you don’t know what they will be 5 years later. So treat everyone the way you would like to be treated.
