Top career tips for millennials…

millennialsAs part of the millennial generation; I’ve seen peers carve out an enviable career path in an ever changing landscape. However there are some still trying to find their way; so I’ve drawn on the experience of my millennial friends, family and colleagues – past and present, to see what top career tips they would give our generation.

 

1. Embrace career change

 

It may seem strange that millennials will consider a change in direction relatively “early on” in their working life; but now is the time that many are reconsidering their earlier choices and whether their initial career path suits their current work/life balance aspirations. If you are unhappy; embrace the need for change; investigate different career paths and if you can; try some short term temporary work to see what does work for you.

 

2. Be willing to learn

 

Above all you need to be realistic and flexible with your options. You may find that waiting for a job opportunity that is perfect from the “get go” will be a thankless task. Every one of your career choices; past and present – have pros and cons so don’t be afraid to push the boundaries a little and try something new; like learning a new skill – it makes you that little bit more marketable AND valuable.

 

3. Market yourself

 

The tech savvy generation are fully aware that a good online personal brand is essential and that on the flip side, not having one at all may fail to get an employer “excited” about you as someone who can enhance their team. It’s not just online though; make sure your brand message is consistent across LinkedIn; your public Facebook and Twitter feeds, that you are active in networking groups and above all make sure your brand “markets” your product – it SELLS YOU!
