On our last #MillennialTalk Twitter Chat, we talked about “What Millennials Need to Know about Their Credit.” Tuesday, May 19 at 8pm EST, we are talking to experts from Goodwill @GoodwillIntl about “What Millennials Need To Know About The Job Hunt.”
Whether you are a recent graduate searching for your first job or an underemployed or unemployed 20-something, you may need some help with your job search.
As the nation’s leading nonprofit provider of job training and skills attainment services, Goodwill® empowers millions of individuals every year to find new jobs and grow their careers. In many cases, your job search will begin by having little to no experience in the career field(s) that you want to pursue. How can you find employment opportunities in a competitive market and with little or no work experience?
Our guests from Goodwill will review practical ways you can begin to build relevant experience and demonstrate your skills and interests to connect with the jobs and careers you want.
Some Talking Points:
- Many jobs require experience. How can you get experience when you don’t currently have a job?
- What are the practical benefits of volunteering?
- Would you benefit from additional training? How do you select the right online learning opportunity? Where can you find career mentors that build your employability?
- What are the benefits and drawbacks of the “Gig Economy”?
