As the crowd watched the handsome intellectual and the equally interesting interviewer, they never suspected the initial insult would become eloquent, enticing and flattering series of elevator sales pitches disguised as an empathetic piece of advice. Never the less, it worked, and regardless of the agenda, the advice was true: Millenials are people born on 1984 and after, they are considered to be tough people to manage. Others have cataloged them as narcissistic, self-ínterested and lazy! What millennials want in a job is a place with free food, bean bags and a place with a purpose, even though with all those things satisfied they are still not happy at all.
Some of the elements that affect their attitude come from:
Parenting: Some of them were grown up in houses with failed parenting strategies, this means that they were spoiled kids that had everything they wanted and were always told to be special with no special reason. The impact of adults grown under this style comes to the point that when they work and they are not rewarded they ends up being low self-esteem workers.
Technology: Millenials are experts showing life is fantastic and they have the best life ever even though they are depressed they publish pictures on Facebook, Instagram, and all social networks. They sound so secure when they give advice but the thing is that they have no idea how things are. Cellphones and social media are addictive, everyone feels good to have messages and dopamine is released in this process so the feeling fantastic comes.
Many kids and teenagers admit having friendships that are superficial, they can have fun with them but they can not trust them. They end up giving their time to social media and studies have revealed that people that give their time to social media are more susceptible to suffering depression.
Impatience: The millennials have no need to go and spend time buying a movie ticket they just go and log on and watch it. They do not even go to the store they just order something on Amazon and the next day it arrives. Impatient people that is what they are turning themselves into.
