      The situation: You have experience at a certain level of authority within a company. You are being offered a promotion by a different company that is in the same industry but has different products.

    • Guest Post: Hey, Gen Y, Are You Afraid To Network?
      I’m a Gen Y job seeker. Unemployment data tells me I’m not the only one. A recent Pew study shows that 37% of 18-29 year olds are out of work! But the career and networking events I go to tell a different story. Networking, networking, networking. We’ve all heard endless times how it’s the best […]

RTOD: Domain Name Pain

Posted by Chanelle Schneider on May 20, 2010

I‘ve been going back and forth with myself for a little while now regarding the purchase of a domain name. I started this blog a year ago to give myself the opportunity to finally get serious about what I wanted to do with my life. I feel that I’ve done a consistent job with this but would love to do more. I want to get into podcasts, more marketing, and, especially, blog designing. Having a blog with a registered domain name would afford me those opportunities. I strive to grow and educate myself by learning the things I wasn’t able to learn in school.

What say you, readers? Do you own your own domain name? What made you make the decision? Any tips to share?

Gen Y: How Do You Handle Promotions?

Posted by Chanelle Schneider on May 11, 2010

The situation: You have experience at a certain level of authority within a company. You are being offered a promotion by a different company that is in the same industry but has different products.

The question: If you’ve never worked with the products, how do you convince yourself, and, thus, the company offering the promotion, that you are worthy of the promotion?

Please discuss answers in the comments!

Talking About My Generation Y

Posted by Chanelle Schneider on April 16, 2010

Generation Y gets talked about quite frequently. We’re lazy, unmotivated, listless, unproductive, blah blah blah. Frankly, I’m none of these things. I know many more GenY’ers who don’t fit this stereotype, either. Hiring managers, why are you consistently hiring the same type of GenY young person if business claim to despise having them in their offices? Business people, are there no outliers anywhere in any of your offices? I find that hard to believe.

Generation X had a song by The Who that rallied them together against the negative stereotypes being put on them. Generation Y needs a similar rallying cry. Anyone want to create it? Anyone? Bueller??
