    Classroom to Boardroom - Are American Millennials Lacking in Skills?
by Lindsey Pollak and Jenna Connour - Apr, 2015
In a test designed by Princeton’s Educational Testing Service (ETS), American Millennials scored far below people of other nations in the areas of literacy, math, and technology. The study caused many to question if Millennials in the U.S. have the skills necessary to thrive in the workplace. Lindsey Pollak joins LJNRadio to discuss these findings, and to shed some light on what may have caused the results that some consider t...
 
  3 Tips for Marketing to Millennial Moms and Dads
by Lindsey Pollak - Aug, 2015
Hoping to capture the buying power of the parents of all the little Avas and Liams being born these days? Then make sure you’re addressing millennials – who comprise the majority of today’s new moms and dads. I’ve been immersed in this topic lately as I’ve worked on research for The Hartford’s survey of millennial parents. And recently, millennial parents have influenced employers such as Microsoft and Netflix to announce s...
 
  The Secret to Recruiting Millennials (Hint: It’s Not About the Money)
by Lindsey Pollak - Aug, 2015
By now I hope it’s no secret that millennials are looking for more from their work than just a paycheck and a place to spend their days. The perfect fit is all about culture. New York University and Harvard Business School graduate Phil Strazzulla (yes, he’s also a millennial) noticed there was a lack of detailed employer information available for young job seekers — and also no clear way for companies to showcase their emp...
 
  4 Public Speaking Tips You Haven't Heard Before
by Lindsey Pollak - Aug, 2015
Deliver a speech. Give a presentation. Share a few thoughts. No matter what you call it, speaking in front of a group — even a small one — tops most people’s dread list. In fact, you may have heard public speaking is Americans’ No. 1 fear. (Hence the old joke that most people would rather be in the casket than delivering the eulogy.) Still, learning to speak well is key to building business relationships, especially if y...
 
  Designing for Millennials: Is That Really a Thing?
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2015
There’s no question millennials are the hot target market these days — and many companies have decided that designing for millennials is a ticket to success. Take the recent Whole Foods announcement about its new store concept, aimed at millennials with “modern, streamlined design, innovative technology, and a curated selection” of lower-priced organic and natural foods. Like many others, I read about the new store concept...
 
  Fortune’s New Workplace Ranking Reveals a Lot About What Millennials Want
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2015
Pennsylvania-based Power Home Remodeling Group recently earned the top spot on Fortune’s inaugural list of 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials. A home remodeling company? Are you thinking what I’m thinking? That doesn’t strike me as a super-hot place for millennials to work. But it beat out popular employers like Google — by a lot (Google only ranked 25th) — even though Google has been No. 1 on Fortune’s annual list of t...
 
  The Simple Way to Build Intergenerational Relationships at Work
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2015
If there’s one issue on which all generations agree, it’s that millennials are masters of technology. The Wall Street Journal recently published an article on millennials helping “befuddled” older employees with their tech troubles. Although I don’t love the thought of myself as “befuddled,” I did recently share in my newsletter how I enlisted a willing Millennial (my “Snapchat mentor”) to help me master the app’s quirks....
 
  Wear This, Not That: A Millennial’s Guide to Business Casual
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Ripped jeans. Tank tops. Flip flops. Visible bra straps. Wrinkled shirts. Shorts. Micro-mini skirts. Bare midriffs. Five o’clock shadows. Many managers complain that millennials think the same clothes you’d wear to the beach or a nightclub are also appropriate work attire. This is, of course, not a new workplace issue. Complaining about younger generations dressing inappropriately has been taking place forever. But peop...
 
  Millennial Question: Why Does Gen X Love Email?
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
“You’ve got mail!” Ah, the days when the ding of a new message was exciting rather than annoying. With all the apps and productivity tools designed to help us manage our email and all the effort many devote to achieving “Inbox Zero,” it’s hard for millennials — and many others — to believe that Gen Xers used to adore email. And our dirty little secret is that many of us still do. Of course, not every Gen Xer feels this wa...
 
  Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders: My Talk at NACE 2015
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Last week I had the amazing experience of serving as a keynote speaker at the annual National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) conference in Anaheim, Calif. The enthusiasm of the crowd was infectious, and I had the opportunity to connect with so many career services professionals and campus recruiters who are on the front lines of creating tomorrow’s leaders. (NACE, for those who are unfamiliar, is the go-to associ...
 
  Back to the ‘Kids’ Table’: Should Millennials Have Their Own Space?
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Remember being stuck at the kids’ table at family gatherings? In some ways, it was fun to be able to kick back with the cousins and avoid probing questions from relatives you barely knew about whether you had a boyfriend or what “hooking up” meant. (Or maybe that was just my family…) But, in a way, you also felt as though you were being segregated just for being a kid. Like you didn’t have anything to add to the grownup co...
