The search for a new job is getting harder for many millennials, but they still find it challenging to find one that matches their skills.
According to a survey by CareerBuilder, only 41% of workers aged 25 to 34 have a clear idea what their ideal job title would be.
But even those who do have a career goal are having a tough time finding work.
“Most people who have a goal for their career don’t know where they are at with that,” says Jason Ziegler, vice president of HR for the recruiting and training company.
“It can be really difficult to find a job that matches your skills and interests.
The main thing is that you have to be careful of where you’re at and where you want to go.”
Here are some key takeaways from the survey:The survey of 2,096 workers showed that 41% have a job goal of becoming a CEO or a CFO, but only 19% of those are finding one.
Only 23% of millennials are satisfied with their current job(s) and only 14% say they want to move up in the workplace(s).
There is a noticeable difference in the skills and experience of those who say they will be moving up or moving into a new role(s): 29% of the young workers who said they will move into a different role are now employed as CFOs, versus only 16% of Millennials who said the same.
Some of the most important things to remember when looking for a job are:The average age of the workers surveyed is 35, with a median age of 25 years old.
There is no gender difference in how many of them have a role in the organization.
The median age for the jobs being sought is 34 years old, with an average age at the start of the survey of 28 years old (for the CEOs and CFO roles).
The median salary for the roles being sought by millennials is $56,000, or $20,500 more than the average salary.
There are many ways to look for work in the future, including:A career-specific position that fits the needs of the company, such as a CTO, CFO or VP.
An internship, where a job seeker takes part in a specific project, usually for a fixed amount of time.
There’s also the possibility of an entry-level position, or an entry level position that doesn’t require a specific career path.
There may be other opportunities available that you can look into, such a part-time work, internships, and even volunteering.
The survey also showed that millennials want to have flexible working hours, as they’re often looking for new jobs and are more likely to look online for information about what jobs are available.
The average salary for a typical entry-year job is $46,000 (or $22,000 for the CEOs role), compared to the average pay of $38,000 by workers in the CFO role.
According a CareerBuilder survey, millennials are increasingly seeking out positions in the entertainment, healthcare, retail, retail management, and related services industries.
While many millennials may not have the same career goals as the previous generation, they can certainly find a way to meet those goals, especially when it comes to the internet.
“I can’t wait to start my career in the internet industry, because it’s so fun and it’s exciting,” says Ashley.
