Forget lazy, self-centred or cocky — the truth about most millennials is they’re absolutely hopeless when it comes to basic life and workplace skills, experts say. Research shows young adults are comfortable putting themselves “out there” online, but all that time glued to screens has raised a generation incapable of small talk, critical thinking, and…
