I recently came across some of Penelope Trunk’s videos. (Hat tip @LRuettimann.)
This is an older video, but I think these points Penelope identifies as most important to Gen Y job seekers is, in one sense, timeless. (I think it is also true that these are values for a lot of people who are not Gen Y.)
– They value time over money.
– They recognize that it is important to have friends at work.
– Location is key.

What do you think? What is most important for you as a job seeker? How do you evaluate an opportunity? What makes the difference for you, and how do those things change depending on your situation? What are you doing to help yourself land the opportunity that is best suited to your needs?
