This really doesn’t come as a surprise. Last week, I interviewed a millennial who had worked in the same digital media agency for 1.5 years. She quit and decided to broaden her knowledge and skills through freelancing. She was in a band and also needed to have flexibility to attend rehearsals. I am seeing this more and more but is there a common denominator here? Almost half of Europe's young adults are living with their parents, new data suggests. Would this candidate have been able to quit her job if she was paying off a mortgage I wonder? Whilst freelancing allows flexibility and can be lucrative when the economy is strong, there is always risk financially, one that some are unable to take due to financial burdens.
