What are the first words that come to your mind when you think of Millennials? We have heard them all, and chances are, they are not positive adjectives. But do we understand why this generation is the way they are today? Do we know what has shaped the Millennial generation?
Every generation has events that define the people of that generation. These events shape people’s perspectives on life, how they interact with the world, and how they choose to live. Whether it was WWII, the Civil Rights Movement, financial recessions, or a global pandemic, these events mold who we are as individuals. The Millennial generation is no different when it comes to these events that happened during their formative years.
But what the Millennial generation has experienced something that is unlike any previous generation. Not only have Millennials had significant events, but they have been experiencing a movement throughout their lifetime. This movement has dramatically changed this generation and has affected how they view and interact with the world.
If you work with Millennials in any form, this podcast is for you. Or if you are a Millennial and don’t understand why your generation is so different or if you need to be encouraged by like-minded people, take a listen!
In this first episode of Season 2 – “Millennials In Their Own Words”, we discuss the significant events that have defined them and the movement that has changed this generation. We also cover some of their concerns about finances and housing and why 52% of their age lives at home.
In the next few podcasts, we will talk with Millennials about how they view work, debt, social issues, and whether they think their reputation of being lazy, snowflakes, soft, and entitled is fair. They will also answer questions you have for them.
