IT headhunters would certainly pinpoint generations X and Y as controversial generations to hire for IT jobs. There are plenty of prominent complaints IT recruiters get about generation X and Y IT professionals. However, the generation IT staffing firms have a hard time getting a consensus on is actually the baby boomer generation.
Plenty of IT recruiting companies hear highly conflicting opinions on baby boomer IT consultants. Some IT managers praise baby boomer IT contractors for their work ethic, their ability to set and achieve goals, and their easy acceptance of authority and rules. On the other side of the coin, IT staffing agencies can encounter plenty of negative arguments for baby boomers for IT jobs. Some IT recruiting firms hear that because of baby boomers illustrious resumes, they are too costly for IT companies. IT headhunters also hear arguments that completely nullify experience anyways, in a world that is full of break-neck paced change. In addition to these conflicting points, there are also varying views on how late a company would like to invest in an IT professional’s career. No matter the source, the opinion on baby boomer IT consultants is bound to be a complicated one.
