Job searching in the 21st century is a frustrating, daunting, and unnerving task. It's also a topic that has been covered by countless how-to manuals, research texts, PBS, Pew Research Center, Forbes.com, The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, Time, The Boston Globe, and The New York Times. This Examiner plans to take a fresh look at the generations applying for jobs during the 21st century.
If you’re a Millennial (aka anyone born on the cusp of the 21st century in the 1980s and 1990s) you’ve got quite a difficult task in front of you. You have to have experience—meaning you’ve got to have years. At ages 18-26, years are not in your repertoire. You have your high school years and your college years and your graduate school years.
You probably have several thousands of dollars of debt to represent these years, and you’re looking to achieve financial stability and professional success. This Examiner can help you get what you deserve after many years of hard work. You’ll learn what employers want; figure out how find internships that give you experience, and learn to stand out amongst other competing job hunters.
If you’re not a Millennial (aka not a computer-savvy techie geek) this Millennial writer can help you craft a resume/cover letter and post these job hunting tools on a www.linkedin.com profile. Don’t know what LinkedIn.com is? This Towson University graduate professional writing major can teach you. You’ll learn how to navigate online applications; how to organize a job search, and find an effective way market yourself online.
Together, we can figure out a way to make you not just another job hunter going through the motions. You’ll transform into a memorable product and a recognizable brand that employers will want and will need to hire.
