    Jordan: Thanks for covering our event. Just wanted to clarify two points of discussion that you call out in your article:

    1. Millennial attitudes and behaviors are definitely distinct from those generational cohorts that came before them. My comment about the GenX (being labelled the “slacker” generation) was intended to reflect the fact that there are misperceptions of Millennials–much as there were of GenX as that group was maturing and entering the workforce.

    2. The comment about the appropriateness of tatoos was not intended to imply that Millennials should cover them up, but to say that being mindful of the professional environment in which you work is important. Different organizations have different expectations and definitions of “professionalism”.

    Hope this clarification is helpful.
