Over the past few weeks we set out to interview the most talented millennials we know and the people that hire them. Our goal was to have a better understanding of the type of work these brilliant, young people do, what they look for when trying to find a job, and how they connect with potential employers.
On the flip side, we wanted to know how seasoned entrepreneurs viewed these young employees. How did they find the best talent and scale their organizations. What did they think of this up and coming generation of makers and shakers?
We’ve broken the interviews out into a series that we’ll be releasing over the next few weeks.
Part 1: The Introductions
The millennials you’ll meet in the following video are designers, developers, digital marketers, and growth hacking gurus. Most have had a plethora of jobs in their field in the last few years, some now run their own companies, while others only work remote. Some of them have degrees in their chosen fields, while others dropped out and are still highly sought for the skills they taught themselves.
The entrepreneurs we’ll introduce you to have vast experience sourcing, hiring, and managing young talent. We first asked them to define their culture. It’s one of those words everyone talks about, but what does it look like in practice?

Likewise, millennials can get a bad rap. Many call them lazy, entitled, and impatient. What we found in these interviews was the opposite of that. Check out the video below to learn more.
