I NEVER hire Millennials. Because I hire for talent first and many of the successful candidates just happen to be Millennial. When did this resilient and tech savvy generation become a label with such a negative stigma?

Sloppy English, Inappropriate Jokes
Not Embracing Company Culture
Not Developing "Professional" Skills
Now if you've been around a couple years you might think like I did ... "Boy, I know a lot of Boomers and Gen X's that fall into the same category." That's the problem with labels, especially those tied to age. I believe Millennials wear an unfair label of being truant in today's workforce.
