Millennial Yuppies are Bummed.

Millennials need a lot more from a career than a nice green lawn of prosperity and security. The fact is, a green lawn isn’t quite exceptional or unique enough. Where the Baby Boomers wanted to live The American Dream, Millennial Yuppies want to live Their Own Personal Dream. “Follow your passion” is a catchphrase that has only gotten going in the last 20 years, according to Google’s Ngram viewer, a tool that shows how prominently a given phrase appears in English print over any period of time. The same Ngram viewer shows that the phrase “a secure career” has gone out of style, just as the phrase “a fulfilling career” has gotten hot. And Millennial Yuppies are finding fulfillment isn’t as easy to find as they’d hoped.
