I'm not sure what you mean. I don't see a big difference between today's STEM graduates and those of 20 years ago. I've noticed engineering schools have tended to have more undergraduate design projects, and students (maybe) tend to have a little more coop/intern experience. Otherwise it is the same old mix of those who want to just work on cool projects, those who want to the be the next Steve Jobs, those who want to climb the corporate ladder, and those who just want a paycheck. Some graduates come out with a good intuitive business sense and initiative (always valuable whatever your role) while others seem oblivious and need clear assignments and direction.
