  Wear This, Not That: A Millennial’s Guide to Business Casual
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Ripped jeans. Tank tops. Flip flops. Visible bra straps. Wrinkled shirts. Shorts. Micro-mini skirts. Bare midriffs. Five o’clock shadows. Many managers complain that millennials think the same clothes you’d wear to the beach or a nightclub are also appropriate work attire. This is, of course, not a new workplace issue. Complaining about younger generations dressing inappropriately has been taking place forever. But peop...

  Back to the ‘Kids’ Table’: Should Millennials Have Their Own Space?
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Remember being stuck at the kids’ table at family gatherings? In some ways, it was fun to be able to kick back with the cousins and avoid probing questions from relatives you barely knew about whether you had a boyfriend or what “hooking up” meant. (Or maybe that was just my family…) But, in a way, you also felt as though you were being segregated just for being a kid. Like you didn’t have anything to add to the grownup co...

  My Biggest Work Fail: A Lesson for Millennials and Their Managers
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2015
My first job out of college was in the business development group of WorkingWoman.com at the height of dot-com mania. Early on, I was tasked with negotiating a contract with a new client, something I’d never done before. But I was on it – referring to my notes and busily cutting and pasting verbiage. When I was finished, the contract reflected everything we had discussed – I had nailed it! But as I like to say, you don’t k...

by Bob Roth - Mar, 2015

Because activity without results amounts to little, we know that results are more important than activity alone. Example: Let's say that you volunteer to lead a fundraising drive for your favorite charity. You and your team work sixteen hours a day for twenty-one straight days, in an...
