Here’s a little bit about me. Read it, or die. JK :D
I graduated college at the age of 20 with a degree in Health Services Administration and worked at a large hospital as a secretary in the Executive Office.
I’m currently working as a Regulatory Coordinator in Clinical Research and am pursuing a Master’s Degree in Public Administration specializing in Human Resources.
Working in an Executive Office, I was constantly exposed to important HR concepts such as leadership development, talent management, and employee engagement. I was also exposed to a lot of Corporate BS. Today, I find myself most passionate about helping young professionals navigate through their first few years as GenYers in the workforce.
So that’s my goal.
Being a Millennial in today’s work force is NOT easy. Anyone who thinks so is clearly unaware of the challenges we face on a daily basis. It’s my opinion that recent grads today are in fact more lost than other generations have been in the past. But I also believe that it’s our responsibility to empower other young professionals.
Why? Because we’re awesome. And we bring a lot to the table. And if employers can learn to embrace the changes and ideas that we bring into the workforce, the world will be a happier place.
So that’s what Gen Y Girl is about. Sharing. Learning. Improving. Ensuring that we are best equipped to be the leaders of tomorrow.
