Your future manager is a multi-tasking fiend. She or he will embrace every form of social media and communicate with staff by email or instant messenger. Technology use will be first and foremost on his or her mind, with an understanding that it doesn’t always work perfectly, but incorporating technology into processes is crucial. They will demand it!
I am the oldest of 6 and also have quite a few younger cousins that I’m very close to. They range from 5 years old to 26. The females spend a lot of their free time on MySpace and/or faceBook and are texting fanatics. The males also spend a lot of time playing XBOX Live. They all play team sports, take lessons for a particular musical instrument, read books, and do fairly well in school if they’re engaged that semester. They all have a cell phone (except the 5 year old), a computer (or three), their favorite flavor of social media, and over 900 channels of television to chose from along with an arsenal of movies to watch & videogames to play.
