There are hundreds of articles online about the stereotypes that older generations give millennials. Instead of trying to defend my generation by telling you how unfair these generalizations are, I’m here to tell you that while we do possess a lot of these characteristics, they might actually be what makes us better employees. Hiring a millennial could become the reason why your organization is so successful. How so, you ask? One of the most common generalizations about millennials is that we’re spoiled and entitled. I truly believe that I was hired because of who I am and everything I’ve done that helped me get here. There may be hundreds of people that fit the criteria for my job, but I know I rightfully earned my position at my company. Having faith in the work I do doesn’t mean that I’m entitled; it just means that I trust myself and know that I can do a great job and get my work done.
