Millennial Priorities Are Not What You'd Expect | Business Case for Service Soon, 40% of the workforce will be comprised of Millennials, a cause-driven and hyper-connected generation who expect the workplace to fit all of their expectations, which happen to differ greatly from other generations. We’ve already learned that millennials care more about giving back than receiving credit for their work. Taking this research one step further, we found that, 70% of Millennials count “giving back and being civically engaged” as their highest priority. [IVEY] This means that to the overwhelming majority of Millennials, making the world a better place is more important than any aspect of their career or life. It is almost as if we have been hard-wired to do good above all else. Have you recognized this socially-conscious mentality amongst your Millennial employees?

Volunteer Management: You’re Doing It Wrong. What makes some people quit volunteering? Sometimes the experience isn’t managed effectively, causing people to decide volunteering just isn’t for them. By Heidi Massey Volunteering makes people happy … except when it doesn’t. Recently, in a conversation with friends who were all commiserating about how unhappy they were, I suggested that volunteering at a nonprofit organization might help. One friend responded: “I will be honest. Clearly, this person never had a great experience as a volunteer.

Build Your Career Master Plan with a Mind Map. How to Approach Writing a Resume When You're a Jack of All Trades. I'm 31. I have been a paralegal, a textbook writer, a test-prep teacher, a PR agent, an elementary school teacher, a ballet teacher, a ballet dancer, a personal trainer, a sports medicine trainer for people with disabilities, an artist's assistant, a research assistant, a museum tour guide, an office manager, and a published novelist. I have at least five up-to-date resumes at any given time that make it seem like I've only worked in one field instead of a million. I am never dishonest, and this system seems to have worked well for me so far, especially since the three jobs I have right now are AWESOME and I love my professional life. The only annoying thing is that my in-laws don't understand me, and think I should "focus" on one skill set, in spite of the fact that I earn so much money doing what I do, that I will be putting their son through graduate school next year without taking out loans.
