How is it that they can possibly know?
Characteristics of Millennials
Millennials grew up in an electronics-filled and increasingly online and socially networked world.
It is clearly the generation that could have benefited from military service, working at V.A Hospitals or being part of an apprentice program.
Many have chosen the role as “Queen of the house hold and made the choice to take care of their children at home.
It’s true, look at the video below for the truth!
Being a full-time mother is a daunting task requiring stamina, little quality sleep and on call status 2X7X7.
They are the generation that has received the most marketing attention.
It would be inappropriate to paint them with the same brush.
Many have served our country as volunteers in our recent wars.
They have gone on receiving degrees as well as advanced degrees leading productive lives.
As the most ethnically diverse generation, Millennials tend to be tolerant of difference.
Having been raised under the mantra “follow your dreams” and being told they were special, they tend to be confident.
While largely a positive trait, the Millennial generation’s confidence has been argued to spill over into the realms of entitlement and narcissism.
They are often seen as slightly more optimistic about the future of America than other generations, despite the fact that they are the first generation since the Silent Generation that is expected to be less economically successful than their parents.
Which generation are you?
These are Western Cultural Generations. Japan and Asia and portions of Europe will have their own generational definitions based on major cultural, political, and economic influences.
