Brace yourself: New proof is in that millennials want more than just a paycheck from their jobs. When the National Society of High School Scholars asked 18,000 Americans, ages 15 to 29, to rank their ideal future employer (from a list of 200), it wasn’t surprising that Google, Apple, and Facebook were high on the list. All three companies offer a strong sense of innovation and philanthropy, and both of those traits are extremely important to millennials in the workplace. However, some of the other entries on the list might surprise you. Surprisingly, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the CIA, NSA, and FBI appeared high up on the list. Surveys have continually found that millennials want to work for companies that value employee welfare, flexible scheduling, and a sense of purpose. Millennials also want to work for companies that offer what The New York Times called in its article about the study, “a rich, textured life now ...” and the opportunity fulfill their desire to make a difference in the world.

A few years ago, when I used to work in real estate finance and development, my colleagues and clients oftentimes thought I was either anorexic or an alcoholic. Because I keep kosher, I have a pretty restrictive diet. In order to be able to meet with anyone, wherever they may want, I would often sit in lunch or dinner meetings and enjoy either a Diet Coke or a Heineken. I would casually sip my drink, acting as if it were normal not to order anything else, while everyone at the table enjoyed the different options on the menu.
