TIME FOR AN UPGRADE?
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.
