Per Survey, Most Hiring Managers Say Colleges ‘Somewhat Prepare’ Students for Working World

successAccording to a new survey, The Multi-Generational Job Search, conducted by Millennial Branding and Beyond.com, the top three attributes companies are seeking are a positive attitude, communication skills and the ability to work as a team.

Soft skills, anyone? It just goes to show there’s an emphasis on being that enthusiastic team player who communicates well. Furthermore, based on their data, earning a college degree is important but not as important as an applicant’s personality.

New Job Search Study Breaks It Down by Generation

This just in, courtesy of Millennial Branding and Beyond.com. A new survey revealed job search results by generation.

In an exclusive interview, Dan Schawbel, founder of Millennial Branding and author of Me 2.0, indicated, “Our study shows that boomers are job searching online, and using social networks, over younger generations. They also have the longest job search and suffer the most from age discrimination.”

New Study Shows Millennials Leave Jobs Every Two Years

Recruiters refer to candidates who jump ship from job to job within two years as job hoppers but according to a recent report, millennials are just the new normal.

That is, according to a study conducted by PayScale and Millennial Branding, 18 to 30-year olds in the job market switch employers every two years. In comparison, baby boomers typically spend about seven years with an employer whereas Gen X-ers typically spend around five.

And it sounds like millennials prefer to work at shops with less than 100 colleagues since 47 percent of this population is employed by small companies. In fact, less than twenty-five percent are employed by companies where head count exceeds 1,500. Read more
