I recently read a very interesting article in the Edmonton Journal that indicated that working with “linksters”, also referred to as the tech-savvy generation, calls for understanding from employers.
Linksters are technologically savvy teenagers born after 1995 who are just entering the workforce, with little or no social or communication skills because they spend so much time online. In addition, they learn differently and may not absorb anything from books or training manuals because they do “most of their learning through interaction,” says Larry Johnson, of Johnson Training Group.
