In this series of blog posts, “Millennials at Work,” I’m diving into each of these stereotypes and discussing how they impact this generation and those of us who work with them.

by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2013
It’s been said a zillion times, but it’s true: It’s not just what you say; it’s how you say it.
