Why is it Important for Businesses to Hire Menterns?
They Have the Experience
They Know What Business Needs
Menterns have already gone through the phase where they want to try new adventures professionally.

This can lead to a lot of turnover for businesses hiring these individuals, which is both costly and tiresome.
When a Business hires a Mentern, they'll likely gain more consistency.

When you hire someone from this generation, you don't have to worry as much about them leaving in six months for a new opportunity they just have to try out.
