What different generations look for in a job
Socially conscious employers
For both Millennials and Gen Xers, an employer must be civic-minded and socially aware. These generations grew up with exposure through the media and Internet to images and stories of social causes in the United States and abroad. Volunteering has been a way of life for these two generations, and the Millennials in particular will seek out employers who provide community development opportunities and have a strong commitment to civic and environmental causes.
