    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...
 
  Starting A Summer Internship? Here's Advice You Haven't Heard Before
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2016
Show up on time. Ask smart questions. Have a can-do attitude. All good internship advice that you’ve likely heard before. There’s no question that summer internships can be the gateway to future employment: a new survey from Looksharp confirms that internships increase your chances of early career success. And, since demand for internships is greater than supply, you have to prove you’re among the best and the brightest. Bu...
 
  What I've Learned From 6 Months Of Simplifying
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2016
At this point, most of us have heard of Marie Kondo and her best-selling manifesto, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. She suggests decluttering by asking yourself about every single thing you own: Does this spark joy? I love this question, but the truth is my decluttering bar is set a little lower: I don’t always need what I have to bring me joy. I just need it to not bring me angst. That’s been my key takeaway so far...
 
  More Than Fetching Coffee: How To Build Great Relationships
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2016
With summer intern season about to begin, I wanted to share helpful advice I’ve been reading about making internships truly beneficial for both interns and organizations. What you do to help interns succeed will impact them far beyond this summer. And their contributions can make a real difference to your operations. Start Off On the Right Foot “On the first day of the job, an intern is most likely going to feel a little...
 
  Making The Case: How To Retain Millennials In Law
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2016
This year, we’ve seen news about companies in traditional industries like banking and consulting changing long-standing work practices to address millennials’ expectations about work-life balance and flexibility. (Of course, as one CEO told me, these changes are celebrated by all other generations as well.) One industry, however, remains as traditional as ever: law. In an industry that still lives and dies by the billable h...
 
  What Millennials Want At Work - And Why It Matters
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
We’ve all heard and read the millennial-bashing. Millennial employees want free food; they want unlimited vacation; they want to run the company two days after they arrive; they want to be coddled and given a trophy. If you’ve read my blog before, you know that I’m definitely not in the millennial-bashing camp. Why am I always so bullish on this generation? Because if you look past the stereotypes, you quickly see that mill...
 
  The Business Case For Supporting Millennials
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
If you’re a millennial, you’re probably humming along with Zac, Vanessa and the rest of the cast of High School Musical when you hear those words. If you’re a Gen Xer or baby boomer, you might not be feeling the music, but I want you to feel the love. As we approach May and a new crop of graduates heads into the workforce, let’s unite from a place of solidarity. Millennials often get a bad rap, but — as you know — I believe...
 
  Your Secret Source For Top Talent
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
“But we were on a break!” (“Friends” references cross the generational divide, right?) Ross may have been talking about a relationship break, but I want to talk about career breaks – when employees leave for another company or a personal life event. Today, most employers realize that job-hopping employees are a fact of life. The 2016 Deloitte Global Millennial Survey found that 44 percent of millennials plan to change jo...
 
  Let's Talk Politics! (Office Politics, That Is)
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
The phrase “office politics” makes some people queasy. Maybe that’s because we tend to associate “politics” with people who are looking out for No. 1. Those who will say anything to get ahead. The backstabbers. The gossipers. Very House of Cards. But office politics is a different game – and one that savvy professionals know they have to play. That’s why it’s important to reframe your view of office politics and think about...
 
  Poor Communication Skills Are Killing Your Authority
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
Remember the “house phone,” that apparatus we now call a “landline?” Every Gen Xer recalls the torment of the long cord that was just a little too short to get you away from your eavesdropping siblings, the annoying busy signal, and let’s be honest, the thrill of calling your crush and hanging up pre-caller ID. But as house phones became relics, so, too has the notion of practicing critical communication skills at home....
 
  References 101: The Secret To Winning the Job
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
Are your ears burning? I know why: An HR person or recruiter is calling your references. Maybe you applied for a new job, or maybe someone’s got an eye on you and he or she is calling around doing intel. References are a very important step in the job-search process. Most companies do a deep dive into a candidate’s background before making an offer. And that’s a good thing: If you have awesome references, there’s no better...
