4 They believe in purpose
Cashing in a pay cheque for a job you neither love nor believe in will never fulfil you. Studies show that to have real meaning and happiness, you need one important thing: purpose. Millennials seek out jobs that offer just that and their company’s values are crucial to them. They want to believe that the results of their labour are greater than the sum of the money they take home. If you have a strong belief that what you are doing counts for something, you’re more likely to stick it out when things get tough. You’re also more likely to derive happiness from your nine-to-five, although nine-to-five isn’t really a millennial thing. They work all hours – which you’re okay with if you believe that what you’re doing has a purpose.
