The 2011 Cisco Connected World Technology Report examined college students and recently employed college graduates, many working in their first full-time jobs, to see how much social media, device freedom, and mobile work means to them.
More than half of the study’s respondents cite the Internet as an “integral part” of their lives. “For some, it more essential than owning a car, dating, and going to parties. Also, one in three would prioritize social media freedom, device flexibility, and work mobility over salary in accepting a job offer. These and numerous other findings provide insight into the mindset, expectations, and behavior of the world’s next generation of workers and how they will influence everything from business communications and mobile lifestyles to hiring, corporate security, and companies’ abilities to compete.”
