Way to go, millenials. Now put down the phone and shower up.
Millennials may not be getting jobs because they value their smart phone more than they value things like personal hygiene and body odor.
In data released on Monday by the Bank of America Trends in Consumer Mobility report, 1,000 adults were interviewed about how they value objects in their everyday lives.
Only 87 per cent said that deodorant was important to them compared to 93 per cent who said that a smartphone was important.
91 per cent said that toothbrushes were important.
Older adults cited deodorant and smartphones as equal in their everyday lives with the toothbrush ranking the highest importance at 95 per cent.
NBC interviewed Susan RoaAne, the author of How to Work a Room, a book that gives workforce hopefuls advice on how to land a job.
‘If people can smell you before they see you, you aren’t getting the job,’ said RoAne.
Employees who let their personal hygiene slip after getting hired are also less likely to get promoted or get hired in a position that requires face to face contact with clients or CEOS.
To make things even more difficult for recent graduates, unemployment in the workforce is high.
They can blame Obama for that. He also stinks.
