The Power Of Millennials


“Millennials” grew up with technology at their fingertips in an era of instant gratification. For them, multitasking is second nature: they talk on the phone while updating their Facebook status and simultaneously typing a paper. Expression and acceptance are more important to this generation, and they have high expectations when entering the workplace. These qualities are often written off as entitlement and lack of ambition by employers who aren’t used to working with Generation Y, and these stereotypes certainly make it more difficult for the nearly 2.7 million recent college graduates to get their first professional job. Adding insult to injury is the very high unemployment rate and the staggeringly slow addition of jobs to our national workplace. We need this set of young professionals to lead the charge back to a prosperous economy.
