In a few months, a new crop of communications graduates will enter the job market. Sure, they’ll be well-versed in communication theory and writing in AP Style. But, this new generation of communicators has grown up with email, smartphones, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. What new ideas, skill sets and experiences should you expect of them? And besides a job and a paycheck, what attributes and qualities might recent grads be seeking of your organization as a prospective employer?
