What is the traditional career path? You go to school and get good grades so you can go to university. Study hard, get a job and work hard to earn a promotion. And then it is one of two avenues: get on the bill-per-hour treadmill and work your way to executive level, or jump ship, work for one of your old clients and start your trip towards the executive suite.
Today, things look different. Raised on an appetite of instant gratification, talented Gen Y workers tend to jump ship every time it feels like its progress, momentum, and development have slowed down. Some studies show that in developed countries, under-30 professionals will change jobs up to 29 times across 5 different industries by the time they are done. Never mind that they are meant to be creating value and giving their employer a return on their investment.
