A New Generation of Job-Seekers
Guests: Andrew Hess, Glenn Stanton
Glenn Stanton and Andrew Hess recently presented us with some research on Millennials, and the section on newly minted young adults entering the workforce was especially interesting. Glenn and Andrew spell out the findings for us, and we pull our soon-to-be-launched-into-the-real-world intern James Eldridge into the mix for a discussion on expectations, education, provision vs. passion, and facing "the hunt."
Guests: Jon Acuff
You may know him as the wit behind the wildly popular blog Stuff Christians Like, but Jon Acuff is an everyman. And he has the resume to prove it. The author of the book Quitter, Jon joins me to dish on the ups and downs of employment, fitting in the things you love, and maximizing your own strengths and experiences to get where you want to be. It's what he did; shoot, he wasn't always invited to speak to large groups about Sunday School and worship leaders' fashions. He's at his pull-no-punches best in this interview.
Guests: Jackie Kintz
Our listener knows what the Bible says about slaves and masters, honoring authority, and working to the glory of God. But what if your boss is, well, just plain terrible? What if his or her expectations are unrealistic? Or unkind? Or unethical? Is it OK to take your concerns up the chain or even throw in the towel? Human Resources expert Jacki Kintz shares some practical steps for dealing with tough bosses.
