Mentorship: A Generational Perspective
Shadle, Eric
College and University, v91 n3 p35-37 Sep 2016
Three major generations are represented in today's workforce: Baby Boomers, Gen X, and Millennials. Each of these groups has a wide range of definitions, but here they are defined according to their most common definitions: Baby boomers include those born in the decade following the end of World War II and are between the ages of 50 and 70 years. Generation X includes those born between 1963 and 1980--individuals in their mid 30s to late 40s. Generation Y, more commonly referred to as Millennials, includes those born between 1981 and 1994--those in their early 20s to mid 30s. In this article, Eric Shadle describes his experience as a Millennial mentee, discusses what Millennials expect from mentors, and summarizes eight things a mentee can and should do.
