#PayChat: Millennials and the Challenges They Face in Today’s Workplace


Are you struggling to launch your career? Younger generations are feeling the brunt of the sluggish economy when it comes to starting a career.

Millennials entering the workforce face many challenges such as underemployment, low job satisfaction and rigorous competition for decent paying jobs. This Wednesday, October 30, at 10:30 a.m. (PDT), Dan Schawbel, Founder of Millennial Branding and The New York Times best-selling author of Promote Yourself, joins PayScale to address these critical work-related issues facing Millennials in our monthly twitter chat, #PayChat.

PayScale and Millennial Branding recently released a study on Generations at Work, which compares how Baby Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials compare in terms of salary, job types, education, values, and lifestyles. This Wednesday, we’ll dive deeper into this report to talk about the challenges Millennials face in the workplace.

Do You Know What You're Worth?

During this 30-minute Twitter chat, we’ll discuss the following questions:

  • How has the sluggish economy affected Millennials?
  • How do their economic struggles compare to previous generations?
  • Are Millennials less engaged at work?
  • What will it take for Millennials to climb the corporate ladder?
  • Do you have any advice for Millennials entering the workforce?
