Students Must Stand Out To Make Out
by Bob Roth - Nov, 2010
When college students simply tell employers what they can do and what they have done, they are putting themselves in the middle of a very large pool of job applicants. However, the best candidates will stand out when they describe the exceptional “results” that they have previously achieved. That?s important because employers believe that past results are the best predictors of future results. Which statement of stu...
How Millennial Women Are Shaping Our Future
by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2010
It's not easy for twentysomething women these days. Every day there are stories in the media about Generation Y: They have helicopter parents who run their lives! They are a "lost generation" who will never find jobs! They are coddled and entitled and can't pay attention for more than 140 characters at a time! While there are certainly truths underneath these headlines -- many Gen Ys look for parental support, they are f...

It's been a while since we've talked generationally, and since these ideas came up in two media interviews this week, I thought I'd share them here: *Focus on acquiring transferable skills. You have all the time in the world to get promoted and have the responsibility of a senior executive.

College: Time To Grow Up
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2010
When students enter college, they will begin to face a long list of challenges. Whether they are ready or not, every student will be expected to have the maturity to act responsibly, do their best work and make good choices. This is a time when students begin to operate on their own and take full responsibility for their decisions, words, behavior and results.

Students Must Prove That They Should Be Hired
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2010
As students go through college, they should be aware of one important fact. Employers expect college students to “prove” that they should be hired. Wise students keep this fact in mind and make certain that they can provide the proof that employers seek. Employers are interested in five things: 1.

Lots of people are buzzing about the recent New York Times Magazine cover story, “What is it About 20-Somethings?” The article focuses on the fact that today’s 20-somethings are “delaying adulthood” by moving back in with their parents, marrying later and hopping from career to career. The article speculates about whether these shifts are happening because of the current economy, a fundamental change in the definition of a...
What I Wish I'd Known in College
by Lindsey Pollak - Aug, 2010
As someone who spends my days interacting with college students and thinking about their career prospects, I often think back to my own days on campus. I’ll admit that I experience a mix of nostalgia, relief and regret. I enjoyed college, but I also struggled to find direction during those four years. While I know I can’t change the past -- and my struggles transitioning from college to career led me to the work that I do ...
Are You Headed Toward or Away?
by Christine Hassler - Aug, 2010
Our motivation is directional, impacting the results we create and the ease in which we create them. Think about when you are motivated to do something. Are you motivated more by what you want to get away from or what you want to move toward? TOWARD motivation moves us toward more of what we desire while AWAY from motivation is an attempt to get us away from circumstances/feelings that are causing discomfort. Let's consider...
Degrees and Expectations
by Harry Urschel - Jul, 2010
As recent college graduates hit the job market, and time goes by for some of them without any prospects, I often hear the expressions of “shock and awe” that they spent four or more years earning a degree and now they can’t seem to find a job! For many, they are surprised that they are not being considered for jobs when they thought that coveted sheepskin was the ticket to success and prosperity. What happened? Certainly th...

The other day at a Starbucks on Cape Cod my colleague Dave seemed distracted. “I’m sorry, I just can’t take my eyes of this group of kids.” Four boys who I’d guess were between the ages of 14 and 16 sat facing each other - their high end laptops open to separate gaming or Internet sites. 45 minutes later when Dave and I got up to leave they were still locked in this activity. As far as I could observe they hadn’t spoken a ...
