Do you recruit millennials? If you are a recruiter and said “no,” don’t kid yourself. You soon will be. Why do I say that? Millennials will be roughly 50% of the USA workforce in 2020 and 75% of the global workforce by 2030. That being said, do you know who they are? How they think? How likely they are to stay with your company once hired? A megashift is already underway in the workplace and you need to be ready for it. If you are not (as many organizations are not), then I HIGHLY suggest you pick up “Promote Yourself: The New Rules of Career Success” by Dan Schawbel.
I’ve heard Dan speak on the topic of Millennials in the workplace at the 2013 National SHRM Conference earlier this year and walked away feeling informed. Below are a few soundbites from his speech then.
Below is information about his new book – “Promote Yourself: The New Rules for Career Success.”
How people perceive you at work has always been vital to a successful career. Now with the Internet, social media, and the unrelenting hum of 24/7 business, the ability to brand and promote yourself effectively has become absolutely essential. No matter how talented you are, it doesn’t matter unless managers can see those talents and think of you as an invaluable employee, a game-changing manager, or the person whose name is synonymous with success. So, how do you stand out and get ahead? Promote Yourself frees you from the outdated rules for getting ahead and lays out a step-by-step process for building a successful career in an age of ever-changing technologies and economic uncertainty. Schawbel provides you with the unique skills and message that you’ll need today and for the rest of your career. Promote Yourself is the definitive book on how to build an outstanding career.
