Hiring A Millennial

If you’ve ever wondered what hiring
 a Millennial would be like
 this funny look at a Millennial job interview
 might provide some insight.
 This Millenial girl is a wizard at technology
 and is sure to be a great worker.
 I think her potential boss is going to need that 
mental health day after this interview.
