Comments31/01/2017 #44 Wayne Yoshida#41 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit - Thanks for sharing the story on Bernays. It is always good to point out the differences between "Public Relations" and "Public Information" and "Advertising." Boils down to changing opinion vs education and increasing knowledge, or paying for visibility of products and services vs true news.
And unfortunately this is changing - People are finally whining about "fake news" - but what do you think would happen when news agencies fired the professional news writers and journalists and instead relies on "man in the street" "reality" reporting from un-trained people?31/01/2017 #43 Mohammed SultanIt's a good idea not to brand yourself as a commodity or a "box of soup" but as a a premium "box of perfume".As in perfume industry a popular brand can command a price premium ,more than forty times the cost of production,the candidate can also aspire to be highly paid by premium employers.To make the job search a fantasy like a perfume with good smell you have to follow the same development process of developing a new perfume.In marketing a new perfume the marketer first outline the features(mainly the candidate's core interests) in terms of a certain target(employer) at a certain price(the salary range) often with a predetermined name(@Kristen Maslanka).You should also emphasis the rational of the synergy,enthusiasm and passion.As a perfume you should convey through your messages the rational of being pretty and young.In the brand positioning era the most important thing is your name..31/01/2017 #42 Claire 🐝 Cardwell@Kristen Maslanka - great advice here - I really enjoyed your article. "it is not who you know, but who know's YOU." this phrase really resonated with me. I hate the way on LinkedOut when you accept a connection request you instantly get a message asking you to buy insurance etc. etc. It really puts my back up and makes me think that the people are desperate for new business. As far as my interests go, I am a part-time artist, I love photography and exploring nature. I also love old black & white movies and am a huge fan of Gregory Peck and Cary Grant. I am a complete bibliophile and have quite a library of my own - mostly self-help books and books on medicine, alternative healing, psychology and travel. I also have 3 cats and would love it if you could do some sketches of them.31/01/2017 #41 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe power of story is immense!!! Storytellers who people love is actually a form of selling! Then some doodoo turns storytelling into washing powder. There is nothing wrong with being a commodity, ever since the birth of commercial media we have been commodities - that is how SOAP opera's started - original television series had soap ads in the middle of the shows !!!
Why Soap Opera's are called Soap Opera's
We are the product of social media companies - that is how Facebook, LinkedIn etc make their money, but we are also minds that evolve the market. I would encourage you to study the art of persuasion, and appreciate the abilities of the best marketers, because it is a great education. It is your own choice if you end up being a box of soap!!! My favourite brain in marketing is the Father of PR - Edward Bernays - man, that guy was good. Don't become a Bernays - be the best storyteller you care to be !!!

Leave yourself with a story. It's not about who you know, it's about WHO KNOWS YOU. So get out there and make some friends! "
Well said, @Kristen Maslanka!
Along the lines of a story, there once was a president many people adored, the world over. Ironically, before he became so loved and famous, he gave a famous speech. Some called it an inauguration of sorts. In it, were many paradoxes. It ended with inspiring words that some say have lasted over 50 years, even to those who were not alive at the time. It went something like, "Ask not what your [network] can do for you — ask what you can do for your [network]."
Well, it was something like that, but me thinks it is very relevant to your story here ;)
Bravo!14/01/2017 #34 Kristen Maslanka#33 " Every Click is a Person" That line is gold, and leave me with a lot to think about. It's true and it's nearly poetic. Some would say that the internet distances us, but if used the right way, it can instead bridge the gap between us all and connect us all as though we were all in one big convention center making friends! Thank you for the comment, I look forward to hearing more from you!14/01/2017 #33 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven@Kristen Maslanka I feel you nailed everything in your phrase, "it is not who you know, but who know's YOU." This world today is all about relationships, especially online. Every click is a person. We have to view them as that. If we view every lead we ever get in whatever type of lead funnel we use as statics, we'll never truly succeed. It is possible but it will take probably 1000 times for traffic. Great tips you left.13/01/2017 #30 Kristen Maslanka#23 It certainly would, and I know i'd learn quite a bit myself!
Clarity is something i can always improve on!
Oh really?! Nothing beats an old fashioned book. I still end up with an entire floor of reference books open in a circle around me. I joke and call it my summoning circle of knowledge. (( if you like older books on foreshortening- Andrew Loomis' books particularly his book on illustration is a great reference))

Comments24/01/2017 #1 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWonderful article and worth the read! @Carl Nordgren wrote, "Millennials aren’t perfect, of course. There is lots of progress that needs to be made. But as I consider the full breadth and depth of experiences I have with them I conclude they have crossed an important line and that Millennials will invite or at least allow everyone in the talent pool in a fashion never permitted before." I agree Carl, I find them to be very inclusive and much more tolerant. I hope we can thank ourselves in part for helping them thrive and use their creative minds. I think if the internet had been around during other generations, those generations before us would be writing about boomers in the same manner or possibly more critical of boomers if they had access to the internet way back when........... Every generation teaches us something and we can either close our ears/minds to it or embrace it. I choose to embrace it. Very nice photo of your father which I'm sure has deep meaning for you.

Comments08/01/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#5 This is the thing, not everybody with millennial kids shares the same experiences he is talking about, but first when I watched this - I thought maybe our family is just an exception to the rule. As I went out exploring this I discovered he has exposed a home truth about a particular parenting style, but one cannot paint all millennials as a result with the same brush - and if anything the usefulness of this video is to discover at the same time the truths that go into a stereotype or a label.
There is a problem with social media but it applies equally to all generations whether they be boomers or millennials, which is how quickly we take it at face value. It is not that we are not individually intelligent enough to understand it, but that we move on quickly to the next piece of social media before we have absorbed and tested this in our own context or given reality.
Ironically when I first heard him speak, his powers of persuasion were immense, he had me convinced that he had found the great truth and I had to check myself spouting this as I thought "Wait, why not ask a millennial - the one's I know, the one's we parented".
In the cold day of light, it is a great truth that pertains to a specific demographic with a specific conformity of cultural values. As Bugs Bunny might say, "sometimes it just feels-white", (I mean right).08/01/2017 #5 Antoine 🐝 PragerThis video is super important and very interesting, anyone with kids should first watch it, reflect on it and then watch it and discuss it with their kids. Because social media are a great thing but managing social media is now part of parenting. Don´t you think so?06/01/2017 #4 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhat I am going to focus on most is Simon Sinek delivery and presentation style. He speaks with great authority and assurance, only problem is that I have yet to find a millennial who I have talked to that actually matches up with the kind of millennial group he is talking about. Then again, I have not talked so far to white middle class parents who buy into all such entitlement and spoiling.
He is addressing a sub-group and if he was Clinton's running mate, he would probably get her another million votes in California and lose the Rust Belt of America by an even bigger margin than Clinton lost it - maybe even 5pts compared to Clinton's 3.5pt under-performance from the last election. Whatever the actual facts of his content, he is a compelling speaker and I am not surprised by the viral nature of this video, it speaks to 100% Sinekism or Cynicism about rich white people.05/01/2017 #3 Mohammed SultanMillennials look at companies as the paths of their thoughts and when these thoughts are blocked or not addressed and expressed,they reach a premature end.Millennials,so,quit their jobs either because they don't have the power or the patience to bend with the conformity trend or because their pockets,time and hearts are filled.Generally,considering millennials as loyal assets is a welfare or a fantasy that goes beyond the business logic and the well established economic theories.

GrinbergLexus, I think the media has made it a habit of beating up on Millennials via and abundance of negative news. The good news is that Gen Z will soon be in white hot media spotlight focusing on this new generation's perceived flaws, etc. This harsh media treatment is sort of like a rite of passage of each new generation. As a Gen Xer, I recall the media bashing we had to put up with, like Nirvana being called the poster child for a generation of bored young people who just wanted to be entertained.

Millennials should note that they will occupy our space soon enough. Your children will laugh at your iPad and mac books in just a few years.

Comments30/12/2016 #5 Mohammed SultanWhat differentiate guys from girls millennials is the role given to them.Although the word millennials is associated more with guys rather than girls and this fact has made us think the world as a very masculine world, many guys today are not tough ,emotional and very friendly most of the time.This interpret why many girls in their twenties can pass a masculine test;when their wishes are projected we find that their motivation are always similar to that of their fellow guys,their preferences are associated to dimensions of power ,energy ,self-importance ..etc.In our cultures,girls are protected by their physical nature,laws and ethics and can go easily against the current of events without criticism.This's why they consider themselves important and a critical element in their society and enjoy life.Thank you @Adam Weedy for your insightful article.30/12/2016 #4 Lisa 🐝 GallagherInteresting perspective @Adam Weedy. I actually can't keep up with all the labels, "boomers, Gen X, Gen Z and Millennials." I can't speak to the conversations you heard because you did hear them but my daughter is 28 and I've been around her along with her friends and I can attest their worldview is more connected than some people my age, their main goal is not gossip but talking about life, they have a lot of respect for everyone (unless someone doesn't deserve it), they share recipes, enjoy learning about and try to utilize all natural products or can their own food. Those are just a few examples. My daughter and I actually do canning together. I'm sure it differs depending on location and many more cultural and biological aspects.11/12/2016 #2 John PrpichThis generational rhetoric is really getting old. We seem to have a fascination about various generations and don't clearly understand that as many dissimilarities as there are between generations, there are just as many similarities. The differences are simply the constant changing landscape. How could someone born in 1980 have the exact same views as someone born in the year 2000, just look at the significant social and economic differences. We really need to stop talking about Millennials like they are individuals coming from a leper colony. If you take the time to speak to individuals from a variety of generations, you'll find it to be a group of people that could represent view points from all four generations, it's the nature of people.

Comments01/12/2016 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitXander, I do see this kind of pattern among the college students I work with. It is not the stereotype of the millennial that I focus on, but that there is a distinct difference in the worldview of this particular generation, and the newest generation has its own traits that come from their exposure to the world of mobile. I already see my grandson bottle fed on a smartphone - and these environmental and social differences do permeate into an overall generational worldview. I still look upon people as one-to-one because the best students I work with do break the mould - and they need to be respected for who they are, rather than as a "millennial" label.

Comments24/11/2016 #1 Richard Buse@Federico Alvarez San Martin Thanks for sharing this. Millennials get slammed for various reasons, but I think the rest of us can learn from what they value. How many folks really need a cable/satellite TV package that offers more than 100 channels? Owning a house isn’t the ideal housing solution for everyone. Motor vehicles depreciate in value and how many tax dollars are needed to build and maintain an automobile transportation infrastructure that’s deemed inadequate or unsafe as it is? Leading a healthier lifestyle does so much to drive down future health care costs, too.
Millennials~ 100 buzzes
Millennials (also known as the Millennial Generation or Generation Y, abbreviated to Gen Y) are the demographic cohort following Generation X. There are no precise dates for when the generation starts and ends; most researchers and commentators use birth years ranging from the early 1980s to around 2000.
