As a millennial entering the workforce, it’s hard to feel appreciated by your company. You’re constantly seen by your coworkers as that young kid who doesn’t know anything — or worse, the intern whose sole responsibility is getting coffee and making copies. It can be frustrating when you know you can do a great job but aren’t given the opportunity because of your age. But don’t give up yet! Not all companies are like that, and OpenWorks happens to be a great place for millennial employees.
At OpenWorks, we value millennial employees in a variety of ways:
We understand that a lack of experience doesn’t mean you won’t be a great fit for the job. At OpenWorks, we often hire young graduates, right out of college, and we hire sales people with no sales experience. After all, at 22 and 23 years old, how could you possibly have those “five or more years of experience” that other employers often require? Instead, we look for people that align with our company’s culture and behaviors, so we know you’ll be a good fit. Then, we provide you with a training and coaching program to jump-start your career.
We know you’re looking for a challenge. At OpenWorks, we understand that you won’t want to keep your entry level job forever, and we know that some of the best managers and even CEO’s once started at the bottom. When you start at OpenWorks, we put you on a career path so you know exactly where you stand and what milestones you need to hit in order to move up in your career. Whatever your career goals are — from being an account executive trainee to account executive and beyond — we’ll work with you to make sure you have the tools you need to get there.
We know you’re tired of feeling ignored. As a millennial, you’re constantly hearing about how lazy or entitled you are — just because you were born between 1982 and 2004! Talk about an unfair stereotype. You know you have good ideas, and you can work just as hard and as well as anyone else in your company. At OpenWorks, your suggestions and opinions are valued and shared among the management team, no matter how young you are. OpenWorks sees the millennial generation as the future leaders of the company, with lots to offer now and in the future.
