Millennials and Resume Gaps
Millennials and resume gaps, the ultimate sign of laziness.
Only someone free of ambition’s burdon bears a life without employment for extended periods of time. Hordes of Millennials play the game for this very reason, referring to their delinquency as “mini vacation”. I have a great respect and admiration for Tim Ferriss, the writer and marketing genius who coined the term. He is hard working, intelligent, full of gumption, and not a member of the Millennial generation. Still, he inadvertently inspired millions to take the south route to Millennial road, which dead ends at Nihilism. What “be anything your wittle heart desires gurus” fail to understand is the vast majority of human beings were born without any significant talent, and are most useful engaged in work that helps keep the wheels of modern civilization spinning.
Instead, we have a generation of special snowflakes. The problem with snowflake logic, is that while snowflakes are unique in a nuanced way, they still melt down the same. No matter how original you perceive yourself to be, a hiring manager sees all Millennial resume gaps as equal. Six months off for a road trip may be enjoyable, but is the direct cause of not getting a job when you return to society.
There are 101 symptoms to watch out for when it comes to Millennialism, the Leprosy of the 21st century. I chose specifically to point this one out for multiple reasons. It is prevalent in Male-innials, and should be a red flag for women confused enough to consider dating one. And, it’s one of the most common symptoms across the board. At some point or another, almost every Millennial has allocated a “safe space” from employment, and it shows up on the resume as a gap. Spread the word so we can raise awareness, the first step to quarantine.
