Below is a great infographic from the folks at The Best Master’s Degrees summarizing the educational, financial, familial, geographical, and occupational makeup of today’s 27 year olds. It’s an interesting snapshot in time of the modern millennial. As an HR professional, this is a troubling one because the lagging professional opportunities afforded this generation speaks to some of the talent shortages that many companies face (and will likely continue to face) in their succession planning efforts. It will be difficult for organizations to fill their benches with young talent when most of them are working in (presumably non-exempt) administrative roles today as opposed to receiving developmental opportunities that will prepare them to lead in the future.
