While Millennials are known for being the generation of "job-hoppers," switching jobs year-to-year, data from our most recent study shows that the threat posed by high unemployment rates is starting to impact our career goals. A flashy open-concept office or extravagant signing bonus may not be what many new grads are looking for.
We were told we could have the world, and unsurprisingly, we're getting more than a little anxious out about the idea that we won't be so fortunate. To be frank, all we really want is for that ugly lie our high school guidance councillors told us in senior year "if you go to a good university and work hard, doors will open for you," to be true. But it's not.
