There is no doubt that millennials are changing the way businesses operate and market, but most recently, millennials have been demanding careers that reflect the fast pace lifestyle many of them maintain; one such path is working for a “start-up” company.In fact, millennials obsession with start-up companies has fueled the evolution of crowd funding websites such as Kikstarter and GoFundMe. Theses websites give millennials the power to be part of a company before the company takes off.
There is almost a tangible exhilaration experienced by those that believe in a concept or product and watch it blossom into fruition before their eyes. The popularity of start-up companies among millennials has been further exacerbated by millennials affinity for social media and accessibility to information at the swipe of a finger.
Millennials also have a fondness for the challenges and adaptability that small businesses can provide in their careers. Current trends have found that people in America have planned on staying at their current job for less and less time. In a study published by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics conducted in 2012, workers planned on staying at their current career for an average of 4.4 years. The study later stated that younger generations planned on staying at a job less than half that amount of time.
This change could be partially attributed to the fact that millennials are looking for a dynamic work environment that allows a lot potential for growth in one’s career, while still offer new and exciting challenges in their job.
A stagnant career with little to no change in job description is one of the biggest fears of the up-coming workforce and clocking into a 9-5 where you push papers and you preform mundane and remedial tasks is scary.

A poem by Robert Frost comes to mine when I think about a future career path, and it is as follows:
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
- Robert Frost
