Overcoming differences when being interviewed by a younger person
I am a Career/Life Coach who works with individuals on "what's next" in their career through creating a career plan. Many of my clients are Baby Boomer or Gen X people. I hear from them quite often that being interviewed by a millennial-age hiring manager is very frustrating for them. It's gotten to the point where it is more of an excuse and a barrier that is keeping them from moving forward.
I want to provide guidance to them. They need to get beyond blaming age differences and find a way to connect with the millennial hiring managers at their level. Do you have any advice? How does someone of an older age find more common ground with a millennial when interviewing? Thank you.
