Today, we are posting the last piece of our 3-part Millennial Minute series about How do you get a job without experience? We all have social media, and we all use it. So is it acceptable to use social media to inquire about a job?  Social media is a great way to engage with companies. These platforms hold a wealth of information available at anytime and anywhere to dive deeper into a company.

In the second video of our 3-part Millennial Minute series on How do you get a job without any experience?, we discuss the importance of being your true self.   Don’t try to be someone that you’re not in an interview. It will define the tone of how you will perform in that position. “You shouldn’t be faking it, you should come as you are, but come as the best version that you are.” - Jaz Don’t sell yourself as something that you are not in an interview. This could actually set you up to fail in that position. Why? You’ll have to be someone you aren’t. This can create self-doubt and create imposter syndrome.

We are excited to launch the start of Millennial Minute! Millennial Minute will be an ongoing video series where Jazmin, our resident Millennial, will discuss various aspects of business life from the mindset of her generation and the younger Gen-Z college graduates.

Do You Love What You Do? Find Passion In Your Job!

By |October 14th, 2019|Categories: How To Find Passion In Your Job, Personal development|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

According to Deloitte Shift Index Survey, 87% of people don’t have a passion for what they do. Adults employed full time in the U.S. report working an average of 47 hours per week, almost a full workday longer than what a standard five-day, 9-to-5 schedule entails. That means by far the majority of our time is spent working. For too many of us, work comes with little to no passion. Why? Because it’s “work.” Unhappiness at work can impact you in more ways than one, here are just a few: 25% of Americans say their number 1 source of stress is their job. If you are spending ⅓ of your life doing something you don’t enjoy, this can create mental and physical health implications. Stress [...]

We may all think we crush first impressions.  But do we really? I’m going to remind you why a thought-out first impression is vital to expand our  professional and personal lives. Strategic, sincere first impressions are fundamental for continued prosperity wherever we are in life, from just starting out after college to moving to another city to accept an executive position. And, of course, this spills equally into our personal life.  We have only one shot to make an exceptional first impression.  For some of us, we may be happy in our career and our social worlds, so meeting new people may not be a top priority. Maybe you have even gotten lazy about putting that critical right foot forward every time you shake a new person’s [...]
