    Classroom to Boardroom - Are American Millennials Lacking in Skills?
by Lindsey Pollak and Jenna Connour - Apr, 2015
In a test designed by Princeton’s Educational Testing Service (ETS), American Millennials scored far below people of other nations in the areas of literacy, math, and technology. The study caused many to question if Millennials in the U.S. have the skills necessary to thrive in the workplace. Lindsey Pollak joins LJNRadio to discuss these findings, and to shed some light on what may have caused the results that some consider t...
 
  The One Relationship That Will Change Your Career
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2016
Many well-respected leaders share a secret to career success: having a mentor who guided and advised them along the way. I have relied on the wisdom of a helpful circle of professionals over the years, and I have benefitted from being a mentor, as well (as my readers know, I’m a big fan of the “reverse mentor,” in particular). One thing we don’t hear about often enough: Mentorship is a two-way street. Millennials need to be...
 
  It's Not About You: What You Really Need To Know About Your Personal Brand
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2016
In 1997, business guru Tom Peters wrote an article for Fast Company, “The Brand Called You.” The timing for this revolutionary concept was especially powerful for me, as a recent college graduate just beginning my career. Now, I know the phrase “personal brand” can turn some people off (much like the word “networking.”) If it sounds too salesy or buzzwordy to you, I totally understand; all we’re talking about it is the con...
 
  Beyond Perks: These Companies Are Getting Creative To Keep Millennials On Board
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2016
For a long time, the conversation about attracting and retaining millennial employees focused on perks. Over the past few years, companies have realized that creating a millennial-friendly environment doesn’t just mean video games and free granola bars. Employers are making significant strides in offering benefits that are important to millennials, from open offices to flexible work schedules to time off for volunteering. I...
 
  The Old Career Path is a Dead End. Here's What's Taking It's Place In 2016
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2016
The definition of “career” is in major transition. Forget staying with a company until your golden anniversary; many millennials don’t stay with a company long enough to celebrate even one anniversary. Over the past few months, I’ve been talking to millennials and leaders at companies and universities about the new path to career success for young professionals. I’ve identified two intriguing trends for 2016. WE’RE ALL W...
 
  How to Make 2016 Your Best Year Ever
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2016
As you set your New Year’s resolutions (mine include eating less sugar and reading more fiction — book recommendations welcome!), don’t forget to set some professional goals. To get you started, I rounded up career advice that will help young professionals catapult to the next level. And, here’s a secret: If you’re a more seasoned professional, these tips will work for you, too. It’s always smart to go back to the basics for a...
 
  Here’s Why You Can Cross Performance Reviews off Your Year-End List…Forever
by Lindsey Pollak - Dec, 2015
Dread year-end performance reviews? You’re in good company. It turns out, they’re not particularly effective anyway, especially according to millennials. A study from human resources provider TriNet found the traditional performance-review process can negatively impact many millennials’ attitudes about their jobs and employers. In fact, nearly 30 percent of the workers surveyed have looked for a new job after a performance rev...
 
  Help! My Boss Is A Millennial - And I'm Not!
by Lindsey Pollak - Dec, 2015
We talk a lot about how managers can work with millennials — but what about when a millennial is your boss? It’s a situation that will become increasingly prevalent, since millennials are now the largest demographic in today’s workplace. In my book, Becoming the Boss, I help millennials with their managerial skills, but if you’re a Baby Boomer or a Gen Xer on the other side of the desk, you might need some advice, too. Keep re...
 
  How To Love Networking (Even If You Hate The Word)
by Lindsey Pollak - Dec, 2015
The word “networking” sometimes gets a bad rap – all those connotations of speed dating-style awkwardness, business card collecting and name tags at stuffy functions. Instead, let’s call networking what it should be: relationship building. And nothing – nothing! – in your career will be more important than this. Years ago, relationship management revolved around the Rolodex, a revered device that represented the corners...
 
  Small Businesses: The Three Things You Need To Know About Millenials
by Lindsey Pollak - Dec, 2015
They’re here! The millennials, that is. If you don’t have one working for you now, you probably will soon. That’s because millennials, also known as Generation Y, now comprise the largest share of the American workforce, according to the Pew Research Center, and by 2025, a full 75 percent of the U.S. workforce will be millennials. These numbers present a huge opportunity for small business owners. Millennial employees as a...
 
  Etiquette Update: The New Rules for Thank-You Notes
by Lindsey Pollak - Nov, 2015
People often ask me if thank-you notes are still important. My answer is an unequivocal, absolute, unqualified, deeply passionate YES. I’m astonished at how many people fail to send a thank-you note after a formal job interview, which has been the rule forever. And I bet I’m not alone when I say that nothing impresses me more than a quick, authentic thank-you note after any situation where a person has been helped in any wa...
