Figuring out where you “belong” in your office can be tricky.
Especially if you’re still sleeping on your parent’s couch.
The Millennial Mafia at Ragan Communications is here to help. Join us on our adventures as we find out what it means to be a twentysomething, who can’t stop tweeting and texting.
And even if you’re not a millennial (or you’re just a millennial at heart), we think there’s a lot we can learn from you. Like…how to send a telegram.
First, see our video.
Now, we’d like to introduce you to our cast:
Jonny: Forget “EveryMan.” Think of Jonny as “EveryMillennial.” He’s plugged into 15 different social networking sites. He loves creating wireless hot spots. He dreams in memes. Jonny knows there’s a time and place to pop your collar.
Jenny: This over-achieving millennial survives on four hours of sleep each night and works 15 hours a day. She’s constantly thinking of ways to save the world—one tweet at a time. However, Jenny’s work ethic and over-eagerness for her job can be intimidating to other co-workers. But they’ll eventually see that she’s just a small town girl, living in a lonely world…
Alan: He’s more than a pouty lip. He’s got great hair, too—but even more importantly, he’s a millennial (even though he’s not quite sure what that means). Surprisingly, Alan is on the cusp of “what’s new” and “hot” in the digital world. So, will he touch while the iron’s hot? Our guess is a resounding yes.
Narrator: Jessica is the “voice of reason” for the Mafia, helping to bridge the gap between the old and young in the office. She’s still part of the millennial generation, but she’s growing up. Two weeks ago, she stopped drinking PBR.
Bill: As the Mafia mentor, we asked Bill what he’d like to contribute in his role. His response: “By virtue of having lived in that long era of pre-Internet darkness and confusion, perhaps I will bring a fresh perspective to the doings and behavior of this timorous, oblivious, self-satisfied, complacent, maddeningly condescending generation who think the Modern Era began with them. That is my task. May I be worthy of it!” Geez. Can somebody give Bill a Xanax?
