Ah, the privileged of youth.
In his new hook, Managing
GenerationX.: How To Bring Out
The Best In Young Talent, Bruce
Tulgan provides "useful sug-
gestions to managers to make
the wont of this energetic new
hreed of worker."
U. Magazine: How do
you envision GenerationX?
Bruce Tulgan: The'
slacker myth is just that. It's an
insult. It positions us as
dropouts. But there's a new
myth - thle loner entrepreneur.
It's ahsolutely true that this gen-
eration is inure fiercely entre-
preneurial than any in histury.
U.: What do Xers want in
a job?
B.T.: No one is offering us
joh security, somwe can't helieve
it when managers demand we
pay our dues. We're not going
to do the grunt work without
some kind ot return.
U.: Any advice for graduat-
ing college Xers?
B.T.: Interview your inter-
viewer. Go in with the under-
standing that you have as much
to utter as they have.
All guod advice - assum-
ing you have plenty uf money.
What ahout the deht-ridden
English grad? We'll never knuw.
Some oftthe Xers Tulgan inter-
views in his hook: a puhlic-
interest lawyer, a vice president
nf t major investment hank and
a physician in residency.
