Stereotypes of young professionals I learned last night from interaction with some college kids last night at a meetup:
They think being an entrepreneur means coding an app. They don’t know how to make paper airplanes. They use their Mac laptops as word processors. They use Twitter to communicate (via app on their phones, not SMS). They think assembly lines are inneficient based on a paper they wrote in high school. They don’t like Mountain Dew because it decays stuff fast. They prefer cities that offer mass transit because they are hard wired to preserve carbon and cash.
Here’s what hasn’t changed:
They love pizza. They have passion. They have new ideas. They’re willing to drive to another city to learn more (road trip!). They think they know everything, but are still willing to learn. We need them.
