You can tell immediately when you’re recruiting a millennial, they aren’t most concerned with what the position is paying or whether it’s bonus eligible. While these may be important factors in attracting these very high-achieving millennials, the questions they are asking us are more focused on a company’s culture; is the company involved in the community, is there a defined path for succession planning and their career, will they have mentors with a personal interest in their success, how will their work make an impact on the business? Millennials are a generation that want to feel good about their career. They want to be with companies that value a fun culture, philanthropy, and professional development. Instead of just a bonus offer them opportunities to learn, better themselves and feel good about where they work and the careers they’ve chosen.
