Millenials, 18-28 year olds, make too an easy target…for their inherited prosperity, their ivy league education, their six figure salary, the jobs they used to have on Wall Street…
And now they’re on the prowl…again…this year and last year and every other year, job hunting and title skipping, they are hop scotching their way to the top, and they want your job. Or more specifically, the CEO’s job. But are their expectations outlandish?
“They really do seem to want everything, and I can’t decide if it’s an inability or an unwillingness to make trade-offs,” says Derrick Bolton, assistant dean and M.B.A. admissions director at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. “They want to be CEO, for example, but they say they don’t want to give up time with their families.”
