(From the article): Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive. They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

Infographic Of The Day: The Trials and Tribulations of the Millennials

This fascinating infographic and article is by Cliff Kuang for Fastcodesign.com

 

The infographic takes you into the world of the Millennials and shows you some very interesting statistics about this amazing generation.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Sociologists have shown that being born in a recession dampens your earnings throughout your lifetime, simply because the first jobs you get are the ones that define much of your success in later life.

 

Almost all the wage increases that you'll get arrive before you're 40. Thus, if you enter the workforce and struggle to find a job, you'll be consistently hobbled by a lack of experience and tenure. But maybe that's a good thing.

 

It may be that millennials are a generation apart in one sense that hasn't shown up yet in the data: Plagued by dead-end career prospects, many seem to have turned to everything from crafts to self-improvement as a way to find meaning outside of what they do.

 

A less materialistic, more happiness-focused generation seems like a very good thing given how obsessed America has been with simply getting more, no matter what.

 

**But it might also be that a lack of prospects makes this generation the most entrepreneurial we've ever seen--after all, innovation is usually born during times of hardship

New Study Suggests Millennial Workers Discount Today’s Growing Need for Global Career Experience

New Study Suggests Millennial Workers Discount Today’s Growing Need for Global Career Experience | Millennials in the Workplace | Scoop.it

Released today, findings from MSLGROUP's original research project 'The Millennial Compass'reveal that Gen Y workers in the U.S. and Western Europe tend to undervalue the need for global career experience compared to their counterparts in India, China and Latin America.  Despite having grown up in an increasingly polycentric business world, and expecting to be in senior management positions in just a few years, Millennials in the West show little interest in gaining work experience in the so-called emerging, fast-growing nations.  These Gen Y employees also seem to believe that their online connections with friends around the world count as global professional experience.

 

"The danger for Millennials in countries such as the U.S., UK and France is that they are putting at risk key career opportunities in global corporations because of a lack of interest in moving beyond their comfort zones, family and friends.   At the same time, with the dramatic growth of educated and successful Millennials in other parts of the world, global companies have a much greater talent pool from which to hire and this opens up great global opportunities for Gen Y workers from India, China and Latin America," said Brian Burgess, Global Co-Director, Employee Practice, at MSLGROUP.
