Expect Instant Gratification

The familiarity of a few-second search through a search engine has translated into the daily lives of the millennial generation.

Rather than the linear tradition of entering the workforce at the bottom of the totem pole and rising to the ranks over the course of a life-long career, millennials want to feel valuable and satisfied in the work place early in life.
