Employers like that they are tech savvy, but dislike poor work ethic and unrealistic compensation expectations
From From stltoday.com:
Employers have a decidedly negative view of the so-called millennial generation, seeing those in the demographic as having poor work habits and inflated pay demands.
That’s the upshot from a new study examining the professional outlook for people in their 20s, known collectively as Generation Y.
Many employers prize Gen Y workers for their perceived facility with technology and social media. But 47 percent of the bosses surveyed said millennials have a poor work ethic, 46 percent said they’re easily distracted, and 51 percent said they have unrealistic compensation expectations, according to the study by research firm Millennial Branding and financial giant American Express.
