Workforce Generations Chart

This chart visually shows overlap of generation X, with millennials (Gen Y), and with the most recent generation, Gen Z (Gen 9/11, iGen). Some experts believe the millennial generation starts around 1977, while others suggest around 1980. Likewise, popular expert opinions vary slightly on the generation Z start year. Some suggest as early as 1990, while others believe the mid to late 1990’s is more accurate.

Below is a great example of this confusion. While the work is titled as A Millennial Job Interview the stereotypes expressed are more relevant for generation Z. Watch this great work by director, Daneil Brea, of LA Reel House, (Starring Melissa Tucker, Tom Katsis, and written by Ralph Odierna):
