Generation Y gets talked about quite frequently. We’re lazy, unmotivated, listless, unproductive, blah blah blah. Frankly, I’m none of these things. I know many more GenY’ers who don’t fit this stereotype, either. Hiring managers, why are you consistently hiring the same type of GenY young person if business claim to despise having them in their offices? Business people, are there no outliers anywhere in any of your offices? I find that hard to believe.
Generation X had a song by The Who that rallied them together against the negative stereotypes being put on them. Generation Y needs a similar rallying cry. Anyone want to create it? Anyone? Bueller??
