Of course Millennials are the poorest performers - but not for the reasons you may think
As often as I see articles proclaiming Generation Xers to be slackers, I have to admit that Millennials are really getting a bum rap for being the "poorest performers" in the job market.
It's probably true that they are not performing at the levels of their X and Boomer counterparts. Want to know why? Because they are like 25-YEARS-OLD!
What would that say about the last 15-years that I've been working hard, learning, improving, and "sharpening that saw," if I was at the same level as someone just getting out of undergrad? I'll tell you, 37-year-old Suzanne is a lot stronger professional than 25-year-old Suzanne was.
Therefore, my advice to the Millennials - just hang in there.
