Don’t underestimate millennials — here’s why I’m thinking of asking my son for a job, Larry in Fox News

As my youngest son, Zachary, approached graduation last year, I felt a growing apprehension about his future, professionally speaking. Though possessed of a strong work ethic and soon to have a degree in sports marketing, I didn’t sense he had a viable plan.

Whenever I broached the subject, he spoke vaguely of starting his own company. To me, he might as well have been speaking of making a living in a rock band. To my generation, that’s simply not how it’s done. You get an internship, impress your employer, work your way up the ladder, and then, if you’re lucky and so inclined, start your own company. I told my wife to hold off on her plans to redecorate Zachary’s old room. He might be back. Soon.
