Wow. Sloane’s perspective is amazingly naive. Just because you have set up parties and dates, posted some pictures, and organized a fundraiser on social media does not mean you know how to make use of it professionally. Also, one thing smart people learn how to do in their jobs is to adapt to and learn new technologies. Guess what, Sloane? Many of us already had to transition from little/no Internet to Internet in the workplace. How did we ever survive?
As a side note, I definitely think that the “digital native” perspective is a useful one to incorporate into the workforce just like any other unique perspective. I wouldn’t hire Sloane, but I’m sure some of her friends are bright.
