I've worked hard to get to where I am in my carreer and I'm fortunate to be in a management position where I have the ability to hire entry level engineers. Â As the article points out, I too have come across this perception (empahsis mine).Â
If there is one overriding perception of the millennial generation, it's that these young people have great -- and sometimes outlandish -- expectations. Employers realize the millennials are their future work force, but they are concerned about this generation's desire to shape their jobs to fit their lives rather than adapt their lives to the workplace.
Although members of other generations were considered somewhat spoiled in their youth, millennials feel an unusually strong sense of entitlement. Older adults criticize the high-maintenance rookies for demanding too much too soon. "They want to be CEO tomorrow," is a common refrain from corporate recruiters. [via WSJ]
Millenials must embrace the tenets of Objectivism if they wish to truly change the world. Â Don't assume that you are entitled to anything, I certainly don't owe you a damn thing.
