Brian Havig4 Tips for Graduating Millennials Entering the Workforce
by: Brian Havig | Forbes

“When I was your age, I had to physically mail a printed resume to a potential employer, pound the pavement to find a job, and walked to work uphill, both ways.”

People always like to talk about how much easier life is for the newest generation. But when it comes to the job market, that doesn’t seem to be the case. In the spring, more than 3.3 million high school graduates and 3.7 million college graduates are potentially going to throw their hats into the job market. But it’s not just job scarcity and increasing competition that should worry them. This generation, more than any that has come before it, faces the threat of technology continually changing the landscape and decreasing the value of their job skills. People used to be able to learn one skill that would give them job security for the rest of their career. Now they’re lucky if the skills they learned aren’t obsolete by the time they have graduation-day dinner with their parents…

We have been called Generation Me, but a better iteration would be Generation I. Millennials are first-person narrators, telling the tales of trifling missteps and early successes in love, work, and play through every modern medium for friends and the unknown public of future employers and fathers-in-law.

We open ourselves up and out pour stories.

While some never tie together the random threads of their thoughts, others hunt down each loose line. It’s how Michael Price tracked the arc of his biography to write a self-help book called What Next? The Millennial’s Guide to Surviving and Thriving in the Real World, which dives into education, career, and personal finance lessons he learned from the ages of 15 to 27.

Price has self-assurance in spades. Articulate and ambitious, he has insight into his own decisions and the intent to share advice drawn from that with a broader audience…

Kate RogersLife Advice to Millennials from a Millennial
by: Kate Rogers | Fox Business

It’s safe to say most millennials have wondered “what’s next” in life, whether it’s life after college, getting a new job or moving out to their own place.

Given the tight job market, massive student debt and a slow growing economy, the challenges this generation faces means they must approach life differently than generations prior, according to Michael Price, author of What Next: The Millennial’s Guide to Surviving and Thriving in the Real World.

“I was having a tough time working into my new role [at work], and was talking with my parents about corporate politics and just my life experiences,” the millennial says. “I realized there are so many people in my generation who are lost, and don’t have a solid foundation.”

Millennials have gotten a bad rap in the workplace, for not working hard enough, being too entitled or not knowing how to properly communicate, Price says, and it’s time to put an end to that reputation…

In conjunction with your own website, you should contemplate blogging about your professional interests or your targeted industry, said Michael Price, author of What Next?: The Millennial’s Guide to Surviving and Thriving in the Real World. This will give a potential employer an in-depth look at who you are, Price said.

“It’s also something that 99.9 percent of people are too lazy to do, so when you do it, it instantly shoots your résumé to the top of the pile,” Price said.

A new generation has emerged and they now make up 36% of the U.S. workforce (source: U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics). Many have called them lazy, entitled, and unprepared to take on the challenges of the real world. They can often be seen walking into a hiring manager’s office with a gold star on their shirt, an empty resume’, and a shiny new MBA. Their mom may also be sitting in the lobby cheering them on and they may even come into an interview dressed in jeans, a hoodie and flip flops. In case you haven’t figured it out, the generation I’m referring to is The Millennials. You can discount them or you can hold them in high esteem, but one thing you can’t do is deny that they are here and they’re taking over. Accepting this reality has been a challenge for both Millennials entering the workforce as well as their Baby Boomer counter-parts looking to hire them…
