So let's break this article down. One of the first things this guy did was pick and choose a few obscure millennials who did silly things like
complaining about their low salary online and used that as evidence to show that the whole millennial generation are losers. For one thing,
complaining about a low salary is hardly only something a millennial would do. For another, if that is the worst thing he can dig up, the millennials
are doing pretty good.
Continuing on - no one I know likes the Kardashians.
Moving on again, the millennials are the first generation to really grow up using technology such as the internet. Technology from the information age
is going to affect how everyone thinks and interacts for the next millennium as much as the industrial revolution did. A lot of points in this article
were made against millennials because they are being proactive with the new technology, and that scares the older generations because it is
As a side, there are definitely challenges that are going to come with changes of this magnitude, but there are both good and bad things about
technology. I'm sure it will mature as it gets older.
Some of the article is hyperbole - how is a millennial going to take a jet back home to sleep in their childhood bedroom in the basement if they
simultaneously have no work ethic, for example? As a side note to this, my dad is a very successful doctor (a baby boomer) and his childhood bedroom
stayed intact at his parents' house until the day they died and their house was bulldozed.
Reading the rest of the article (other than the text quoted in the O.P.) is a relief, because it actually says some meaningful things in some
According to Gallup, in 2016, 21 percent of the commitment-phobes left their job after less than a year. Sixty percent are open to it.
There. We actually have a relevant statistic. This is the one fact the article says that is worth its salt and can legitimately characterize the
generation. But how does it compare to other generations when they were young and just starting out in the workforce? And how is the economy different
today? Will millennials eventually settle into a single job when they get older, or not?
My plans for the next five years include changing jobs at least once. I just finished getting retrained in computer science, and I am starting an
internship next month. After that, I plan on working at the same web design company for a wage. After that, I plan on moving on to my next job at some
point, using the experience from the web design company. This is what the owner of the web design company expects, as we talked about it already.
