'Millennials glean experiences online in a way that previous generations couldn't.'Carer Jennifer Davidson, 43, can certainly vouch for the confidence of the millennials who are now her superiors at work.They would look at me condescendingly when I said I didn't understand.'The age gap between Alexandra and her boss — newly promoted to marketing director after six years at the company — made her feel increasingly alienated.'She'd formed a close-knit gang with my younger colleagues.In meetings, they'd all walk away whispering and I knew they were talking about me.Whenever I tried to approach her, colleagues would step in and say she was too busy to speak.
