PB44: Are We That Entitled?

We go to college to get our “dream jobs,” then we are unable to pursue our dreams because we need the income from the job to pay off the debt incurred from going to college. What a time to be alive! “Simon Sinek (age 43) spoke to The Independent about how parenting, combined with social media, working environments, and our impatience have created a generation plagued by low self-esteem, and what we can do about it.” Say what now? Are Millennials really that entitled and emotionally ill-equipped? On behalf of Millennials everywhere, we debunk these alternative facts. On this week’s show we discuss:

  • Is it ok for companies to expect Millennials to be available to work 24-7, even after normal business hours and on the weekend?
  • How searching for your dream job is like finding your soulmate, your “soul job” is a journey that might take your entire career.
  • Following-up on episode PB40: Think Like a Recruiter, Rich discusses another LinkedIn feature — LinkedIn.com/Alumni — that can help expand your professional network and identify possible referrals based on your school’s alumni.

  1. Hey, one of you talked about how you got scammed off Facebook and I can relate. I kept seeing this nice jewelry website and I had seen my other friends had liked their page so without doing any research I decided to check out their website and they had some cute stuff. Their site looked legitimate so even though I rarely buy things online I figured I’d treat myself. I picked two items and was excited that they would get to me in the next week or so. They said they were based out of California, but they said their product was in high demand so it may take a while. When a couple weeks past I got worried so I checked their website for a phone number—to find their wasn’t one so I looked at my email and it said it could take 3-6 weeks to ship. I looked on their Facebook page and saw some happy customer but most of them were unsatisfied I got concerned that my stuff was never coming. I emailed them and they never responded. After week 6 of nothing I called my credit card company to tell them about my situation and to file a claim. Maybe 8 weeks later I got something in the mail in a tiny package. Both items had been shipped from China and were super cheap material. I was excited that it did actually came even though it was garbage. I definitely learned my lesson to do my research before buying from somewhere off the internet.
