Everyone seems to have something to say about millennials. Most of this chatter is not in fact coming from millennials themselves but rather older generations. They're the ones defining who we are, what our values are, and most commonly - what we should change. Millennials. Otherwise known as: narcissistic, the "me" generation, detached, non-committal. The list goes on.
I'm proud (and actually surprised) to say that I am too a millennial. And I've worked with thousands of young adults in this generation. You know what I think scares other generations more than anything about us? We're not afraid to be ourselves. How would I describe the millennials I've worked with? The hardest working, most optimistic young adults who don't take no for an answer and will try, try again until they succeed. Maybe that is a little intimidating.
A few days ago I stumbled upon this article, Why Millennials Keep Dumping You, and can I just say I am obsessed with every piece of it! It rings so true for me and peers I know that really just want to do good work. Even if that means doing it differently than generations before us. Read it. And lemme know what you think.
