Everything You "Know" about Millennials Is Wrong

As every new generation enters the workforce, it's amazing how quickly they're mislabeled with "attributes" that are common to young people. These labels tend to stick, and they become increasingly inaccurate as the generation ages (assuming they were even accurate to begin with).

Some people go to great lengths to ensure they hire the right person.

The candidate is unaware that the restaurant belongs to Bob's friend and the waiter is instructed to screw up his order.

Once selected you usually have a phone interview and passing that, an in person interview.

 Upon entering the interview room if often appears that the interviewer(s) is seeing your resume for the first time, which is very disconcerting. The candidate is already nervous enough.
