We must talk about professional profiles, not generations, because the market does not demand the skills of millennials in general, only some in particular. Just like it does with the rest of the generations. There are Millennial professionals are not the most sought after , the most sought after are the “good” professionals, those who have the skills that allow them to obtain the best conditions, regardless of their generation. The rest of the professionals, the least valued, cannot demand or achieve these conditions, even though they also value them.
Millennial survey targeted professionals with a college degree employed full-time in large private sector companies. The opinions of many millennials who do not have this profile executive data are not reflected in the study. If we look at Spain, 21% of millennials (25-34 years old) are unemployed , more than a million professionals. This means that the unemployment rate of this “generation” is higher than the general rate (18.63%), according to data from the Active Population Survey (EPA) for Q4 2016. The market values and demands the technological-digital talent of a small segment of qualified young people, but this data does not justify the overuse of the millennial label as a general guarantee of professionalism.
In fact There are
A great diversity of professional profiles beyond age, taking into account. Variables such as lifestyles and work, skills, types of careers, motivations. And income according BI Lists to professions, sectors, types of company and geographical areas. Some time ago I heard the director of ING Directa in Spain. Almudenaromand, state that 80% of millennials will never set foot in a bank branch. This very illustrative data indicates that both millennials and centennials. Are and will be digital customers, users familiar with online services and new technologies. But this does not mean they will stop suffering. From serious deficiencies in digital and professional skills as happens with other generations.
