Get set to teach the of­fice techno­phobes how to tweet

Once upon a time, to qual­ify as a men­tor you had to have put in the hard yards. Now? You just need to have been born after 1991. That’s ac­cord­ing to canny big corps who have turned to ‘re­verse men­tor’ schemes to help kick any­one over 35 into dig­i­tal deft­ness. The BBC, Mastercard and HBO (among many oth­ers) are all at it, har­ness­ing their work­forces to bring those in top po­si­tions up to speed with so­cial me­dia’s lat­est trends. Con­ve­niently, this also pro­vides a new way for you to get your foot in the door at your dream com­pany. Want to make your­self an in­dis­pens­able as­set? Send the team a weekly round-up of dig­i­tal news and trends, to keep ev­ery­one up-to-date. Just take care not to CC your boss into that email chain of sloths that look like them.
