Since the year 2008 the job market squeezed, opportunities reduced growth for employees too reduced over a period. This time the period is not coming to an end, while last time after the IT bubble the property bubble came. But, this time the effect continues while the opportunities are there but not the way we saw earlier.
If we see the markets falling in the coming year then we may expect even more difficult period coming in. While it does definitely become difficult for the current experienced people whose ability of risk taking is lower and have seen the easier time. The change definitely would come from the new generation, fresh pass out who are full of energy having risk taking ability and full of new ideas.
So watch out for the new internet savvy generation who definitely make the difference. In rare cases you may see one odd from the older generation succeed. So bet on the new generation and see the difference.
