The members of Generation Y have accentuated the need for accounting firms to be innovative and make use of the latest technology in recruiting and training. Generation Yers expect state-of-the-art technology, demand instant gratification, desire to be challenged, and need continuous learning and feedback. Members of this generation have grown up with technology, are very comfortable with it, and, as a result, expect immediate results. Many organizations are also recognizing the reality that if they want to recruit the best talent, they need to invest resources in providing interactive, appealing, and entertaining programs that will attract Yers. Computer simulations provide an excellent opportunity to break away from the traditional methods of recruiting and training. Today's technology enables the creation of simulations that closely represent a real-world situation, in other words, "virtual reality." The ability of the simulation to accumulate and provide additional feedback after a user has attended training sessions enhances its effectiveness as a learning tool.
