It's tough not to appreciate the Millenial drive for balance and experience not dependent on money, and I share the perception that life is a learning lab. Hey, I work for public radio, remember? That still doesn't make up for the one thing we fail and need to talk about: how much we as employers keep enabling a younger generation to be mediocre and think they're stellar, and it has to stop.

A lot has been said about Joel Stein's Time piece in which he declares the current generation of young adults the "Me, Me, Me Generation." One thing that continues to bother me is how consistently exclusionary these mainstream conversations are.

2013-03-25-EN_blog_international_spotlight_02.pngAfter returning to Canada in autumn of 2011, the competition was staggering. I quickly lowered my standards. I applied for non-paid internships.

I'm not a parent, but many of my friends are. I fear that they're raising a generation of kids with an odd problem: too much self-esteem.
