LinkedIn’s latest stats on Millennials

Want to know more about how to market to millennials, but don't know where to go beyond Snapchat?

A new infographic from LinkedIn sheds light on this emerging, sometimes enigmatic demographic.

People power

For the record, a millennial is defined as someone born between 1980 and the mid-2000s (though we're not sure where this leaves Gen Y).

There are now over 2 billion millennials on planet earth. Over 87 million of these are on LinkedIn, accounting for 38% of the platform's user base.

Job seekers

The most common occupation for millennials on LinkedIn is Salesperson, with over 2.7 million users in this category.

This is followed by Software Developer, Administrative Employee, Marketing Specialist, and Student/Intern.

What they want

So what do millennials want from their employees? Pretty much the same as the rest of us.

Millennials want Advancement Opportunities (67%), Better Pay (60%), and Challenging Work (51%).

Money matters

Millennials represent US$1 trillion spending power annually, and are expected to be connected to 6.4 billion devices by the end of 2016.
