According to Forbes Magazine, “There are an estimated 80 million young Americans who belong to the so-called Millennial generation, roughly ages 18 to 35. By next year, they are expected to comprise 36% of the U.S. workforce, and by 2020, Millennials will be nearly half of all workers.” Recently, the media has characterized this generation as a group that is being robbed of the American dream, considering the prevalence of job-hopping and the presumption that they must create their own oyster. Thus, financial success and prosperity will be overshadowed by economic uncertainty and higher levels of looming debt.
MBA Mentor engages MBA students about their concept of success: What does it look like? How do you define it? How do you achieve it? What is your personal style? Do you characterize success by your achievement in grad school, your last internship, savviness with social media, or is it determined by the clothes you wear? Whatever the response, all answers speak directly to your unique individual brand, or rather your persona--the “soft skill,” in relation to how your colleagues perceive you after that first important meeting. The primary objective of Beyond B-School is to assist in helping MBA students and graduates identify, define or refine their unique brand through our content driven career services.
MBA Mentor has cultivated a strong following for its cutting-edge, on-demand training resources. We provide MBA students and graduates with educational programs, seminars, expert tips, and the latest cultural trends and best practice solutions for not only landing that perfect job, but excelling in the workplace. MBA Mentor recognizes that Millennials are the most educated and culturally diverse of any prior generation. They have grown up with the internet, and their lives have been shaped by modern media and technology. Contrary to the Forbes Magazine jobs report, the outgrowth of career opportunities for this generation is extensive, primarily due to their early exposure to advanced technology.
As a result, Millennials are accustomed to working smarter and are more adaptive to diverse working situations. Today, Millennials are changing the way we all work, and are thus redefining the concept of the business professional class, which above all, seeks to achieve a balance between work and personal life.
MBA Mentor works with Millennial MBA students and graduates who are eager to fast track their careers by providing unparalleled self-assessment tools, professional services, and knowledge sharing modules including, salary negotiation, resume analysis, time management, leadership, industry hiring trends, corporate language, corporate fashion trends, travel, tuition reimbursement, traditional and social networking, as well as, how to make LinkedIn really work for you. Beyond B-School’s objective is to help you navigate the business world and chart out your career goals with flexibility. Our professional resources are on-demand and available any time on smartphones and portable Wi-Fi enabled devices.
