Abstract

This case study uses naturalistic methods to investigate how Millennials work in the field of international student advising.The oldest Millennial is 30 years old, which creates a gap in research on how this cohort performs and prefers work.Through observations and a focus group interview, data on training methods, mentorships, technology use, and motivations for entering international student advising were explored.Findings revealed that previous research is correct.Millennials prefer to be interactively engaged with training material, seek mentors and not managers, use technology, and look for careers that will fulfill them intrinsically.
