3M - Much Maligned Millenials
- Remember to always put your best foot forward in an interview. You may think you’re just being forthcoming/forthright in asking direct questions about work environment or culture, but really what you’re doing is coming across as spoiled, entitled, inflexible – and frankly lacking the sensibility that makes for a strong career. Which brings us to our next points:
- You must be comfortable working with various personality types. Some bosses and co-workers wear their hearts on their sleeve. Some are extremely diplomatic and soft-spoken. You can’t expect that your career will only ever involve working with people with personality types you prefer. Certainly we’re not suggesting that aggressive or hostile behavior in the workplace is acceptable, but you must develop a basic competency in cooperating, coexisting, collaborating with all types.
