The majority of millennials are either unemployed or underemployed. They are constantly making sacrifices because many graduates struggle to work in their chosen field. With fewer jobs available and a larger portion of the workforce with graduate and post-graduate degrees, millennials are being forced to make sacrifices in their careers.
Young millennial graduates are turning to jobs that don’t require a college degree to survive. Millennials understand the need to make sacrifices. They accept work out of desperation more than other generations because the economy forces them to do so.
Millennials weren’t the first generation to change jobs frequently either. Those born between 1957 and 1964 held nearly a dozen jobs between the ages of 18 and 48.
This is less a reflection of millennials not making sacrifices than it is a reflection of fewer employers offering pensions, medical cover, and opportunities for advancement within the company. Moving jobs is a necessity now in a way that it never used to be.
