Do you have any particular ways you recruit Gen Y’s into public service? How about using social media to brand government or interact with employees? Can this be a way to showcase skills of the next wave of government employees?
I’m a Ph.D. student in public policy and administration and am working on a paper for a HR course. I’ve noticed some posts about doing speed networking and utilizing FourSquare, YouTube, FaceBook and smart phones to communicate with younger employees. Does your city or agency market any of these tools to attract younger employees?
