The Importance of Perseverance

You may not be aware but some of the most influential and powerful people in the world had to overcome massive adversities and challenges to get to where they are now. The road to success is not a straight line but like a wave, includes many rises and falls. Learning from and overcoming your failures is a key part of success. You learn what works and what doesn’t, and you learn a lot more about yourself and the importance of perseverance.

Bridging the Gap Between Younger and Older Employees

Bridging the Gap Between Younger and Older Employees

So many articles these days are centered around catering to Millennials and Gen-Z employees. In fact, we just wrote an article about it! One thing that doesn’t get much coverage however is how younger employees could better interact and work with older generations. Communication goes both ways so not only is it important for Boomers and Gen Xers to understand how to communicate with younger generations, but those younger generations need to do their part and learn how to properly communicate with older generations as well. In this week’s blog I delve into this topic and offer some advice to Millennials and Gen-Zers on how they can be more effective in bridging the gap between communication, culture, work styles, and values.

Understanding and Supporting Gen Z in the Workplace

Understanding and Supporting Gen Z in the Workplace

Gen Z is the latest generation to enter the workplace. While Millennials still remain the majority of today’s workforce, Gen Z is catching up. Those born between the mid-1990s to mid-2000s qualify as Gen Z and account for 61 million people in the United States. The Gen Z population are digital natives and they can’t imagine a time when the internet didn’t exist. Technology has always been an integral part of their daily lives and, like Millennials, social media is a big part of it. Compared to the previous generation of Millennials, who are often criticized for job hopping, Gen Z workers, who grew up during the 2008 recession, seem to be gravitating toward jobs that are more stable and they appear to prioritize financial security more. With this new workforce generation it’s important to offer guidance and encouragement to help them develop and thrive professionally.

Importance of Written Communication Skills

Importance of Written Communication Skills

In today’s workplace, email is the most widely used form of communication with most people reading and writing an average of 123 emails per day according to Forbes. It’s clear that non-verbal communication such as emails, online tools like Slack, and texts are only going to become even more prevalent as future technology driven generations move in to the workforce. The outcome of this is that our written communication skills are becoming increasingly impactful and how well or how poorly you communicate in this manner can have a profound impact on your career. So it’s imperative to consider factors such as relevance, length of communication, tone, language, and response time when communicating non-verbally.

Internships – To Pay or Not To Pay

Internships – To Pay or Not To Pay

With summer quickly approaching, many college students are considering taking on summer internships. According to dictionary.com, an internship is defined as “any official or formal program to provide practical experience for beginners in an occupation or profession.” Nowhere does it talk about pay! The most important element of internships is that they incorporate classroom knowledge and theory with practical application and skills developed in a professional environment. Internships are a great way to learn from experts in your desired field, gain relevant work experience, and in some cases provide a way to get your foot in the door at a company you want to work for long term. So, in evaluating internships pay is obviously a factor, but there are other things to consider.
