Good article on Monster's blog called Millennial Myths and the Truth About Gen Y Workers. It covers 5 of the bigger misconceptions about the Millennial generation (born 1980 to 2000).
The 5 Myths are:
- Gen Y is lazy
- Gen Y is apathetic
- Gen Y lacks morals
- Gen Y has trouble finding jobs
- Gen Y thinks they are smarter than you were at their age
I will refer you to the article for the Gen Y "truths", which I agree with.
Oh, and by the way, Gen Y is smarter than you were at their age.
