14 What’s Special about the Millennial Student ? The Wanted generation “Baby on Board” Highly Protected and sheltered by Parents (and authority figures) “My Mom (Dad) is my best friend ” These parents have highly (over?) scheduled Motivated, Goal-Oriented, Assertive, Confident High Achieving (but never allowed to fail) Team Oriented (technology based?) Values formed by the Internet and technology Enormous sense of Entitlement - “Know it all”

15 HOW “MILLENNIAL” ARE YOU? They have changed………………..

16 View of Careers have changed for Millennials Incidence of the phrase “Follow Your Passion” Cal Newport When current Students started school “People who love what they do for a living, I found that in most cases their passion developed slowly, often over unexpected and complicated paths. It's rare, for example, to find someone who loves their career before they've become very good at it — expertise generates many different engaging traits, such as respect, impact, autonomy — and the process of becoming good can be frustrating and take years.” Cal NewPort

17 That expertise that makes us INDESPENSIBLE to our employer (and to NEW employers and to NEW career paths) Career Capital Can only be build on EXPERIENCE “Most people who really love their job have developed EXPERTISE over several years BEFORE they love their job” Newport Malcolm Gladwell in his book, “Outliers” says that to build expertise takes 10,000 hours.
