The challenges of being a millennial looking for a job

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Much like in speed dating, millennials and mentors met for five minutes at a time before moving to the next table and the next potential connection.

The goal at a New York Women in Communications event sponsored by 21st Century Fox is to pair the unemployed with the employed; to give young job seekers tips about how to land their first job.

In case you think twentysomethings lack ambition, are lazy, or act entitled, Time Inc. chief human resources officer, Greg Giangrande, says you would be wrong. He says twentysomethings today are about as under informed on how to get a job as they were 20 years ago. Giangrande says college graduates need to learn how to network. It is okay if mom or dad knows someone and makes a call for you but you have to follow up yourself.

21st Century Fox is the parent company of Fox 5/MyFoxNY.com.
