Millennials Vs. The World: Here’s How to Get Over That Generational Gap At Work

You’re not imagining it. Even though you nailed that post on the company’s Instagram (hello, 5k likes), came up with a bunch of game-changing ideas for their social media strategy and networked the s**t out of that client brunch, your 30-something boss is still being kind of a B, just because you were a few minutes late to work. If you’re in your early twenties and are constantly on the wrong side of your notoriously all-business manager, generational differences are to blame.

They’re very real and much studied. As the fresh-faced recruit at the office, ignoring or misunderstanding those differences can wind up hurting your career prospects, but harnessing them can be a huge advantage.
