The Millennial Interviews:
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. If you missed meeting our interviewees, check our last post.
Part 3: Why we do the things we do
Many of the millennials we interviewed do incredible work for impressive companies, but we wanted to know what exactly attracted them to their current roles? You’ll be surprised to hear: it has nothing to do with free beer, nap rooms, or unlimited vacation policies.
Similarly, the entrepreneurs we talked to hire for some of the most in-demand technical and creative skill sets…and they don’t do it by offering endless perks. Check out the video to learn more.
