Millennials are expected to have 14 careers in their lifetime. They seek new skills, fast career tracks, managerial roles, titles, a Millennial-friendly culture and leadership opportunities. Engineering-oriented, regulatory-constrained, operational environments are not the natural career choice for many Millennials - a generation that prefers to work in companies that reflect their values and culture. Here are global industries we've helped overcome Millennial reticence:
