MTV Set to Air New Show: ‘Jobs That Don’t Suck’

heartWe get a little excited when we hear about a show that’s all about jobs. After all, that’s our jam!

Imagine our delight when we heard MTV 2 has a new show airing on April 16 called Jobs That Don’t Suck.

Focused on young people finding their dream job, it seems like it’s going to focus on teenage entrepreneurs and Millennials leaving corporate America and making their mark.

The trailer quips, “Just tons of people with one thing in common: they love their jobs.”

And remember, per a lawyer turned entrepreneurial chef in the same clip, it’s important to rock out to what makes you distinctly you. “The things that make you weird make you money.”

Check out the trailer after the jump! Read more

Millennials: No Collar Workers

Millennials will transform workplaces according to a new study by MTV entitled, “No Collar Workers,” that took an in-depth look at the career perspectives of this often misunderstood generation. The study was conducted online in January 2012 and polled 509 Millennials.

Nick Shore, senior vice president of strategic insights and research at MTV, wrote a piece about the study for MediaPost, reminding us that “around 10,000 millennials turn 21 every day in America right now, and by some estimates there are already 40 million millennials in the workforce.” According to Shore, at the core of the Millennial employee is, “the quest for meaningful work that makes a difference.”  This fundamental need manifests itself in ways that differ from Baby Boomers and GenX.

Shore elaborates:

What could be misinterpreted as “self importance” is a deeper sense of having many new ideas and wanting to contribute, as well as a desire to have their tech skills and savvy tapped by senior managers.

What could be misinterpreted as “career pickiness” is an expression of a need to connect deeply with the work…

More specifically, the study found that:

88% of Millennials want their coworkers to be their friends

89% of Millennials want their workplace to be social and fun (compared to only 60% of Boomers)
