But I Tried So Hard : A Millennial's Guide to Making It in the Workforce
At 27, I've had four jobs and nine bosses, suffered from the affliction known as "enormous ego," and watched my former college classmates billowing in a smoky world we call a recession. I am a Millennial, for better and worse, and I know the pitfalls of what that means in the workforce. For all the articles and books that sing the praises of Millennials to the managers who teeth-grittingly tolerate us, there are many more Gen-Yers clawing to break into the working world. It is a time when 23-year-olds are held in high esteem at conferences, praised for their social and technical abilities, but the vast majority of those who haven't been plucked from the pack are left watching seasoned professionals take their entry-level jobs. It's just not fair! I'm here to tell my fellow Millennials to suck it up, because life's not fair. To be successful, Millennials must develop an attitude that couples humility with confidence. They must adjust their working style to the world created by the generations before them, without losing the innovative, collaborative qualities that provide them their edge. ...But I Tried So Hard guides them with humor, heart, and some solid advice - with a little tough love along the way.
