I can’t tell you how many ‘millennial’ related articles that I’ve read. Most generations are repulsed by millennials, we’re lazy, self entitled, and we spend all day on Facebook and Snapchat. While the later is true we are anything but lazy; maybe a little self entitled. I like the millennial generation for many reasons but I am partial.
Here is why I think Millennials are great…
Millennials can do work WAY faster than any other generation. We aren’t lazy we;re just efficient. Businesses succeed and grow by being as efficient as possible, #TBT to Ford and the assembly line. Everything I do at my job is done quickly, correctly, and beautiful. Millennials care how things look, we aren’t going to use powerpoint and have something look straight out of the 80’s, unless it’s fashion, that shit’s coming back. We also want to be told we did a great job, if we did a great job. We were spoiled but really we just want to be appreciated. Who doesn’t?
We have a lot of great minds and great ideas as a generation. This is usually suppressed by the corporate environment. Millennials need to be let loose and able to offer up their ideas. Let us work from home or at a coffee shop once and awhile, a little freedom goes a longgg way. We also really take advantage and appreciate our days off. We work to live not live to work.
Do you know how many blogs are out there? I don’t either but it’s a butt ton. We want to experience, share, explore, and write. We love to write and read blogs because it’s personal.
Free Free Free!
We want everything free and we will do anything to get it free. With our parents going through an economic crisis most of your families went from being wealthy to being poor in a short span of time. We know what both sides look like. We make use of and know how to obtain free tools for work such as canva, wordpress, prezi, not to mention social media. This saves businesses a LOT of money.
Bitch Better Have My Money.
PAY. We want to be compensated well for our work. NO we don’t want to work for free…. and we are not sorry about that. We are well-educated/hard workers we deserve to be paid well.
After writing this.. I know I should get paid more.
The Down Side
The not so awesome side of the millennial generation is we don’t reach out or look up. We spend most of our time looking down at our phone seeing what is happening on Twitter. While we do live in a partially virtual world, we are able to put out phones down and be social. Cheers!
