I'm old. Relatively speaking, anyway; and definitely speaking compared to the majority of my co-workers. I didn't get a cell phone until late 2005 and I wrote most of my college term papers on a typewriter—and, even though I've come a long way in the hipness department, I am still fairly traditional when it comes to my workplace values. So, you can imagine my discomfort in being surrounded by an entire subset of people who share few or none of my old-school viewpoints. (Not to mention that no one ever gets any of my Brady Bunch references!)
The good news is, I've been able to adapt to (or, in some cases, cope with) the ways of the Millennials, and I have become a lot more tech savvy and trend aware than I would be if I'd stayed inside my shack and yelled at the kids to get off my lawn. So to speak. I think they may have picked up a few of my tricks as well, which means we have a good ol' win-win situation on our hands!
This scenario is the basis of one of our latest RecogNation articles, which, um, you should so totally read because it's all smart and stuff. For reals. ;)

Allison is currently living out the elaborate fantasy she described to her now-former staff and colleagues in early 2001. With a hearty dose of courage and absolutely no plan of action, she abruptly left her middle-management job to become a writer—and today she is doing just that in her role as Baudville’s Senior Content Writer. She’s here to tell you everything she’s learned in her 20-years+ professional life, plus a lot more. She’s wordy like that!
