Introducing “The Millennial Journey”
By Gorick Ng, MBA Student, Harvard Business School
EACE is pleased to introduce “The Millennial Journey”, a monthly segment featuring the research of Gorick Ng, a Harvard Business School MBA who specializes in the transition from school to work. Over the past year Gorick has interviewed ~200 employers, students, and career counselors to understand the pain points – and opportunities – in today’s hyper-competitive economy.
Each month we will feature a new step in “The Millennial Journey”, each with a thought-provoking headline question for our community to consider.
We will begin with a Millennial’s first steps on a college campus – all the way through to when a Millennial enters their first job out of school. Our goal is not to “average” our students down to a size that fits no one; it is to share the cross-cutting emotions and pain points observed through hundreds of conversations with Millennials from all walks of life.
This monthly segment is meant for career counselors, employers, parents, and students alike. We hope there will be something for everyone.
Let’s have a substantive conversation!
