About This Quiz

Millennials get a worse rap than almost any other generation. Maybe it's because they're the largest generation in general and also the largest generation currently in the workforce. Here are just a few things millennials are known for: killing the mayonnaise industry, being entitled, killing the napkin industry, being lazy, killing the diamond and divorce industries, and so on. The list could actually go on forever. People love writing disparaging things about the millennial generation for reasons that elude most. But some do give credit where credit is due.

In the job market, there are millennials constantly looking for jobs, starting new jobs or leaving jobs to forge their own path. This is the greatest thing about the generation. If the work that they want to do doesn't already exist, they create it. If there isn't an app for something, they make it. These things aren't necessarily learned in school, either - they are learned in the real world, based on problems that millennials are taking into their hands to solve. Some typical millennial jobs seem absolutely ridiculous to those from an older generation, with job titles on TV shows like "chicken nugget expert" and "chief fun officer."
