Managing Young Fundraisers - Resource Center - AFP: Young people enter the workforce today having earned one or two university degrees, being technologically advanced, and completely at ease in a world that moves incredibly fast. Young workers master the limited requirements of their entry-level positions quickly and soon approach their bosses for more variety in their work and greater responsibility. But, their enthusiasm is sometimes dampened by managers who, ironically, have too much to do and too little time in which to do it themselves. Instead of focusing on the benefits of retaining an eager, motivated and now experienced young staff member, they think about the additional orientation, training and supervision time required to promote this individual and hire his or her replacement.
