As Gen Y enters the professional world, we bring a whole new set of rules. We’re often criticized for our restless job-jumping or our sense of entitlement. The truth is, we might play the game differently, but that doesn’t mean we’re not every bit as bright, innovative, and hardworking. Here’s why.

- We pursue unconventional paths
- We value company culture
- We’re not afraid to ask
- We embrace transparency
- We just want to do what we love
