    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...
 
  References 101: The Secret To Winning the Job
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
Are your ears burning? I know why: An HR person or recruiter is calling your references. Maybe you applied for a new job, or maybe someone’s got an eye on you and he or she is calling around doing intel. References are a very important step in the job-search process. Most companies do a deep dive into a candidate’s background before making an offer. And that’s a good thing: If you have awesome references, there’s no better...
 
  Salary Negotiation Tips For The New Grad
by Lindsey Pollak - Apr, 2016
For 2016 lassrads who are starting to see job offers roll in, congratulations! You have your first chance to learn an important lesson that even my four-year-old daughter has mastered: “Don’t ask, don’t get.” A Salary.com survey found that a staggering 55 percent of respondents didn’t negotiate their salary at all in the past year, whether at a new or existing job. And first-timers are negotiating even less: 62 percent of n...
 
  3 Steps to Landing Your First Job: Advice For 2016 Grads
by Lindsey Pollak - Apr, 2016
As we head into graduation season, most grads-to-be are feeling a mixture of anticipation and anxiety as they prepare to launch into the real world. But there’s a percentage who likely have another emotion blended in: panic. If you are graduating this spring and still job hunting, it can seem as though everyone else has their future lined up, and it’s hard not to panic and be jealous of those who have already snagged a posi...
 
  The Rise of Fancy Friday: Why Experiences at Work Matter
by Lindsey Pollak - Apr, 2016
In today’s “pictures or it didn’t happen” world, millennials are all about experiences. In fact, three-quarters of young people would choose to spend their money on an experience rather than buying something, according to a study by Eventbrite and Harris. That doesn’t seem surprising when you consider other data we know about millennials – that they value a company’s culture over its compensation, for example. This quest...
 
  How To Recover From A Major Work Fail
by Lindsey Pollak - Apr, 2016
It happens to everyone. Without fail. The #workfail. In a recent post on soft skills, I shared why it’s so important to own up to a mistake at work. In my experience, other people remember how you handle a mistake, not the fact that you messed up. ‘Fessing up fast, resisting finger-pointing, and fixing your errors are key. Everyone makes mistakes. Keep reading for more in-depth advice on how to clean up your messes and m...
 
  Your Favorite Productivity Trick Is Actually Slowing You Down
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016
I bet I know what you’re doing right now. You’re reading this post, singing along to the “Hamilton” soundtrack and composing a text on your phone. If you’re a level 5 multitasker, you may also be chopping up a salad for dinner or running on the treadmill, too. You’re a productivity ninja, right? Here’s the thing: Even if we think we’re more productive when we’re multitasking, we’re actually not. (Why is there so much olive...
 
  Millennial Turnover: Why Employee Retention Is No Longer Realistic
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016
The proverbial retirement-after-40-years-with-a-gold-watch-and-pension are as passé as, well, a gold watch — or any watch, really, that doesn’t track your vitals and read your texts. Another relic? The very idea of lifelong employment at one organization. Instead, today there is an overriding belief that if you stay too long at one company, people will wonder what’s wrong with your skills or ambition. And this is not just a...
 
  The Not-So-Secret Skills Every Young Professional Needs
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016
Lately, I’ve been hearing a common theme from managers of millennials. They’re hiring you for your record of strong performance, and you deliver. But two little words are holding you back: soft skills. Most professional newbies are unaware of a paradigm shift that happens when you segue from school to the workplace. Your whole life you’ve been striving to deliver the goods to earn the grade, but in a professional setting, p...
 
  Why Day One Matters
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016
As companies look to the spring hiring season, many leaders are focused on how to attract the best and brightest millennials. If you’re planning to bring on new hires, it’s important to think past the moment the offer is accepted and seriously consider what the first few days and weeks on the job will look like. Do you have best practices in place to onboard millennials for success? Surprisingly, only 32 percent of companie...
 
  5 Must-Know Tips For Working With Your Friends
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016
We often think about workplace relationships in terms of buzzword-y concepts like “mentor” or “networking.” But most of us realize our work squad should also include workplace friends — someone you can grab lunch with or commiserate over a work fail. I’ve met some great friends at work through the course of my career, particularly in the early years when we were all starting out. But just like friendships outside of work, f...
