Real Skills for the New Economic Reality

4 02 2009

Welcome. Glad you’re here.

For the past few years I’ve been giving “motivational” speeches to college kids about my experience in business (see About). Typically, I’ll give my personal advice and mix it in with general career lessons from life coaches and usually a heavy dose of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Covey).

Given this current economy, jobs aren’t as readily available like they were a few years ago. Generation Y (those generally born around 1980-2000) must get tougher, smarter, and more flexible in order to land and keep that dream job. You can find some of the skills you’re going to need here.

Generation Y: Let’s live up to our hype – my goal is to accelerate the skills and mindsets of fellow Generation Y’ers. Along with the usual advice I’d provide as a guest speaker, I’m going to provide select interviews with business leaders (and other people who could be your future boss), informational guest posts, career and life skill-building advice, and recommended reading.

I look forward to any comments about what YOU want to see or what I should write about. If it’s something you think We need I’ll research it and post it.

Enjoy,

Mike Peck
