As a millennial, I HATE the fact that we are buried under SO MUCH student loan debt WHILE also working a full time job that pays very little for us to survive in this harsh economy! Open your eyes and look around you and see that its not a debt or spending problem, but a INCOME issue. For being the generation that is highly educated our ability to have financial freedom has become really difficult to achieve. WHY?!?!? Well because college degrees are becoming less valuable in a job market that is still recovering from the 2008 financial crisis that our previous generation had NEARLY destroyed in both the U.S. & World market. SMDH Good Job! So anyways you’re probably wondering well what can I do to get myself out of this situation? Very simple. Just FOLLOW THE MONEY and THE OPPORTUNITIES.
If you are one of those people who are looking for that ONE perfect job then you are wasting your time. You have to be open to the multiple opportunities that are out there because you will NEVER know where those opportunities will lead you next…. quite possibly your “dream job”. Instead take a different route. While job hunting, treat it as if you were selling yourself to a potential client or employer. It will enable you to break out of your comfort zone and seize a life changing career opportunity that will help you to become better equipped for today’s & tomorrow’s workforce. In addition, attend networking events with your fellow millennials! Meeting new and exciting people in the industry that you want to establish yourself in and are passionate about is a great way to learn more about your industry while also finding a great early career opportunity that will change your life forever! And lastly, always remember YOU are the CEO of you’re own life/career. DO NOT follow the status quo, always make new connections, create wealth for yourself, and most importantly CARPE DIEM! #EndRant
