Profiles of the Jobless: The ‘Mad As Hell’ Millennial Generation
SEP 5 2011
In August, the Atlantic asked readers to share with us the one thing people didn’t understand or appreciate about looking for work. You responded with beautiful, heart-wrenching accounts of the job search that we have published in four parts: The Unemployed Speak and Advice from Employers, Longer Voices of the Jobless, and What It’s Like to Be Jobless in Your 20s.
The response from young people has been so overwhelming that we’ve decided to publish a second round of the most passionate, indignant and poignant dispatches from (or about) Millennials, or Generation Y. Leave a comment or send a note to our private email account firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep reading and sharing.
