By 2020, Millennials will make up 35% of the global workforce. Research says Millennials work as hard, if not harder than other generations, and are optimistic about their careers. But why do Employers find it hard to work with them? Why do this same employers view millennials as entitled? In my opinion, they view us millennials like this because we beat the traditional way of doing things. I mean small things like asking questions when we do not understand, rather that going to kill ourselves discovering, being able to say no when we have the right to among many other scenarios.Continue reading “Managing People: Working with Millennials”
In the past few years, the MICE industry has gained popularity worldwide, owing to the increase in the frequency of the various events and meetings being organized globally, and Kenya has not been left behind.
At first, the majority of the people involved in this industry were mostly older people, however, at the moment we continue to see young people slowly getting in the event zone. Young people are now being involved as speakers, suppliers, moderators, exhibitors and among others. Over the past few years, Kenya has successfully hosted International meetings, conferences and exhibitions. According to Statistics by the Events Industry Council, the Tourism Industry is the largest employer of persons between 18 and 35 across the world. It is estimated that out of 10 persons within these age bracket, one of them works or has worked at a Tourism affiliated organization.
What’s with this whole mentality that interviews should be difficult?
In my opinion an interview should be like a conversation (Just a first time meet and greet you know?) unless it’s an actual test for a technical job then okay. But even still, why so difficult? Some of this practical interviews are so difficult you even wonder how you were supposed to know this things,but the truth of the matter is THANK GOD YOU’RE NOT ALONE. There’s probably at least one person in that same interview who feels the same way you do!
What’s the point of this difficult interviews exactly?
Some people say it’s what differentiates the “chopis” from the rest. But how true is this? It’s not necessarily true that if you pass a difficult written test that you are way better/cleverer that the person who did not pass it . You might have been a clever student yes, but you could also just have been a great crammer or you might as well have a photographic memory.Continue reading “Was it another test or just an interview?”
