apparently millennial is a job title now… pic.twitter.com/Y5gwtampUK

I am a millennial. Thanks to countless think pieces and one editor who asked me, “the resident youth,” for a contemporary band comparable to The Beatles (my obvious answer: One Direction), I know this to be true. I am a millennial, and I am working at my fourth big-boy job out of college.
Yet according to the tweet above, that’s impossible. Surely I, a self-identifying member of the generation stealing from Gen X’s honey pot, must still be working at entry level. If I can’t remember life before Facebook (FWIW, I can), I’ll never advance to mid- or senior-level millennial.
Looks like I’m stuck looking for the next job needing six years experience to grab coffee and make copies.
