We have a huge span of generations in the workplace. Baby Boomers to Zoomers (Gen Z) – those who prefer a business card to those who will only use a vCard. All should do better at trying to appreciate and value each other’s strengths rather than dissing their differences. We text too much and talk too little. We should be embracing the varied collective knowledge that can transform companies from good to great. Our workplaces replicate our lives and it’s the blend of new and old that help us find meaning and understanding.

For most of my generation, graduation is terrifying, it means becoming an actual adult, with real responsibilities. I’ve just completed five weeks of a corporate internship, observing the daily ins and outs of a staffing firm, I’ve been able to hear about candidates and talent that have made really good impressions as well as some not-so-nice impressions. I also have been doing research for marketing and social recruiting projects. I am now able to come away with some advice to my fellow Millennials who are entering the job market or will soon be entering it this spring.
