Bad millennial interviewing in the press


As the grads start issuing forth, now comes the job hunt. Apparently, the new crop is not so shiny-faced, eager, and respectful.

This has even made it to TV news a few times.

HR officials report that interviewees sometimes hold up a "wait a sec" finger and answer their phones or send a text mid-interview.

They dress like hiphoppers.

They ask about vacation time and bennies first thing.

The call the interviewer dude or man.

Their tatts are on display.

One even said, "Start next week? Can't--I am going to the beach."

Someone asked on one show should the HR people adapt to them? The answer was NO! But I bet the answer will become yes as time goes on.
