The Need To Engage Organisation, Passion And Hard Work With Millennials

Millennials, most recently have taken key-lead within fashion industry; with it becoming more acceptable to work with millennials, should this be counter-acted within more industries and fields?

I would recommend the technology sector, particularly from the development side of it.

What is it that attracts us to millennials, in your opinion?

I think it’s because they drive the market from a spending point of view, they are always up to date with the latest trends across key markets and are always keen to try new things; that’s why retailers and sellers target millennials the most.

You talk about the need of passion and hard work, how relevant is this to self-confidence and belief?

It is extremely relevant in my opinion, especially because when one identifies their purpose in life, and is self-aware of their skills and strengths and has a vision of their goals, this will lead them to work towards it with passion, drive, commitment and determination.
