For all the hoopla that goes on with the advent of Millennials reaching the workforce, there is actually no specific birth range that defines them. Although, most would agree that Millennials would have been born sometime in the early '80s and the range ends late in the '90s and sometimes into the early 2000s. While the term has been coined as generational, being a Millennial is as much a mindset as it is a birthright.
They have made work more tech-savvy, introduced the playful office space, and done more to promote self-employment through a freelance and gig-economy than any other previous generation.
So, if Millennials are so great, then why do Baby-boomers and Gen-Exers have such a resentment? Perhaps it's because Millennials have changed the dynamics of home and work almost beyond recognition of even 20 years ago.
How much is it that you really know about this young generation? Do you know what percentage have children when they are 25 or younger? Or, the median age of marriage? Actually, a question right up Millennial Parkway, on average how many devices does a single Millennial own? Do they prefer to rent or buy a home? And what percentage prefer to shop online instead of trudging to the store?
If you're a Millennial, obsessed with Millenials, or just curious, it's time to put away your smartphone and tablet, quit pinning on Pinterest and tweeting about your favorite fro-yo so you can find out what you really think you know.
