Where Do You Stand On The Millennials?

millennialsEveryone seems to have an opinion on The Millennial Generation. Even the Millennials have interesting things to say about themselves. Here is a guest article this week on the topic. Feel free to comment and share right on this article itself, however, caution as the conversation is getting heated there last time I looked. Therefore, if you would rather comment right here and share this post that works too!

What Everybody Ought to Know About Millennials by Dr. Patty Ann Tublin

Recently I spoke with a new college graduate who was bemoaning what she described as the endless stupid paperwork HR insisted she complete her first day on the job. She said: “This is ridiculous. This company is crazy if they think I’m going to waste my time filling out useless crap all day long! I wonder if I made the right decision when I took this job?”

Haven’t you scoffed at the dumb bureaucratic paperwork required throughout your career? But unlike this young lady, you’ve probably never seriously thought of leaving your job over it. You’ve just considered it, well, part of your job!

Enter the millennials. The young generation of workers you must understand if you want to hire, retain and/or sell to them. Recently-released data by the U.S. Census Bureau shows millennials (those born between 1982-2000) are now the largest segment of the population, surpassing the baby boomers. They represent more than a quarter of the nation’s population.

Who wouldn’t want to capture this consumer and talent pool? Quite honestly, you will have no choice unless you want to be on the fast track to going out of business.

  1. Mitch, I absolutely love Millennials! I have had great success working with the next generation through my MarketingMel public relations scholarship and mentoring program. I find that these rising young pro’s are eager for a mentor. All of the “alumni” have gone on to very successful careers and they keep in touch with me, much to my delight!

  2. Yes, these are all of the wonderful traits about the proactive Millennials, and there’s also a group of them who have an “entitled” attitude and don’t have jobs because they expect to be taken care of by their parents so they can figure out what they want to do and follow their passion which doesn’t involve making money. I suppose there were plenty of people in the “me” generation who were not self absorbed, so you focus on the ones who you connect with.
