Second, as we all know, technology is becoming more and more important in recreation and fitness. You will want to hire some people who are familiar with the "latest and greatest" in gaming and simulations. Today, it's the PlayStation, Wii and the Xbox.

They will probably be members of the millennial generation—sometimes called Generation Y.

Hire people who are adaptable and who not only can learn new things, but also enjoy learning them as well. And although in your area of recreation you will hire many young people, do not dismiss your candidates from other generations. What is most important is that the candidates want to keep developing themselves.
