Adults often define themselves in relation to their work ... If they either have no work at all, or they have work that is clearly not work that expresses who they are and offers them a chance to develop themselves and move higher, then they are likely suffer a loss of status and feel as though they're not really adults.

Millennials learn to answer the dreaded question: 'So... what do you do?' - Global Post
