Some companies may have noticed that despite the huge number of people looking for jobs, applications remain low especially amongst the millennials or Generation Y. This can be problematic for a company for many different reasons: Generation Y, is the most-up-to-date generation in terms of technology use. They also possess information and skillsets that previous generations may not have had, and lastly, being the younger generation, they are the ones who are capable of working for longer years in a company.
First of all, it is important to understand that there is no shortage of demand for new jobs. So why then are there fewer applicants? The problem is not the company or the job description, but rather the process of hiring itself. Generation Y is also the generation of tech-savvy youths who use their smartphones more often than desktops, or laptops.
