As we see more and more articles discussing Millennials and what they need for job satisfaction, we’ve noticed a new term emerging from the masses….the “Yuccie.”
This term comes from an abbreviation for those “Young Urban Creatives” we all know. What does this term mean? Is it a specific sector of Millennial or a whole new group of the up-and-coming workforce?
A Yuccie, coined in a Mashable article: The hipster is dead and you might not like who comes next; is defined as a slice of Generation Y, borne of suburban comfort, indoctrinated with the transcendent power of education, and infected by the conviction that not only do we deserve to pursue our dreams; we should profit from them.”
Many Yuccies are not only looking for money, but as their Millennial peers, they are looking to earn based on their creativity. This unique niche group is often a person who did not follow the traditional career path and has no real desire to do so. They want to use the passion they have for creative thinking, design, and writing to have successful, meaningful careers.
Keep in mind, when hiring Millennials and Yuccies alike, they’re looking for a lot more than fiscal benefit.
To all of you Yuccies out there, what type of jobs inspire you?
