Age is just a number .....


Why I NEVER hire Millennials? Because I don't hire labels, I hire people and talent. So happens that many of the successful candidates just happen to be Millennial.


How did this resilient and tech savvy generation become such a negative label?


For example, a 2018 Forbes article took a deeper dive into why Millennials are not being promoted in the workforce. (The article was recently deleted) They didn't focus on the flattening of the org structure. The author offered the following five reasons:


Unreasonable Expectations

Unprofessional Dress

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.
