With the rising cost of receiving an education and the mounting student load debt, as well as lack of available jobs, Millennials are faced with the decision of whether there’s value in it for them to continue their education post-bachelor’s. They’re seeking alternatives to creating their own opportunities and finding ways to make themselves stand out from the crowd to become more marketable to businesses.
Our guest tonight on #MillennialTalk at 8 pm EST is Katelyn Bourgoin, @KateBour founder of Vendeve.com, a skill swapping market place for women. We will be chatting with Katelyn about what Millennials can do to increase their marketability and become ready to enter the workplace.
