Okay, so before I dive into this blog post, I wanted to share some fun news! Today I was interviewed by the New York Times and U.S. News & World Report! And also recently by the Wall Street Journal. Lots of interest in Gen Y (aka Millennial) news and insights! I’ll post links when the articles are published.
That’s all. Here’s what this blog post is really about…
Last month I was a panelist for an online discussion about recruiting and retaining Gen Y employees. It was hosted/presented by ComeRecommended.com, and 5 other experts were on the panel with me. ComeRecommended.com is an exclusive online community connecting the best internship and entry-level job candidates with the best employers. And was founded by a fabulous Millennial entrepreneur, Heather R. Huhman.
It was an interesting format using a service called Cover It Live. So it wasn’t like a webinar or webcast where you could hear us; the questions and answers were all done in a written format. It was pretty cool!
Anyhoo, here’s a link to the recording of the event. It’s free so they’re not hitting you up for any money:
Here’s an overview of the topic discussion:
Recruiting budgets, staff and overall resources are being slashed all over the country. So, how do you go about hiring quality interns and entry-level employees during these tough economic times? What benefit packages can you offer that are inexpensive to your organization but highly sought-after by young professionals? And once you have them, what are the best practices for retaining Generation Y? These questions and more will be answered by esteemed workplace experts in a free online panel discussion-you won’t even need to leave your desk!
More to share but not enough time to write at the moment! Will write again soon.
Bye for now!
I was recently interviewed by Meridith Levinson, Senior Online Editor for CIO.com. She wanted to write an article on how the current recession will impact Millennial-Gen Y attitudes about employment, how they can (possibly) avoid lay-offs compared to older generations, and how they may not be prepared to handle being laid off.
My interview with her ended-up making its way into 3 different articles that she wrote related to all this (which is cool!!). Here are links to each one:
I found the topics to be interesting and she also gathered great info from other people. Thanks for the coverage, Meridith!
