Have you have recently graduated from college? Now what? Do you attend graduate school or do you immediately find a full time job, work in your family’s business, register with a staffing agency or start a temp job?
But backpacking through Europe, hitting the beach or skiing the slopes sounds like a better plan and a reward for all of your hard work.
Lots of choices…
The one thing I can share with you is that it’s not so much what you do when you graduate or get your first “real job”, but the people you meet as you begin your work/life experience and those you will meet along the way.
It’s the exposure that you get, Showing up every day, having a great attitude and being flexible In the work place is what will set you apart from the rest. Yes, you have heard all about Millennials being so entitled, ready to get up and go at the first signs of a bigger dollar job or workplace conflict . But I have seen differently, Millennials make things happen fast in business. They know how to quickly maneuver social media, jump in and troubleshoot computer issues (or should I say my computer issues). I have seen many Millennials come up with creative, outside the box ideas that add value to the bottom line and customer experience.
As you embark on your career (or if you decide to take that backpack trip to Europe) you are now ready to jump into real world experiences because you harness the strengths to show any employer you can help their business flourish.
