    Really enjoyed this podcast as I was able to identify with much of what Lara raised, while reflecting on my own journey.

    I too believe the the expectations of millennials are high when approaching employment with academics qualifications but few soft skills or experience.

    Thanks for this Nicolette! Lara is really a gem.

    Hello,

    This was indeed an informative podcast. My takeaways and what really piqued my interest was the importance of networking and continuously building your brand personally and professionally. Being a millennial myself, I can attest to being "patient" in the workplace coming right from university. Employers really do look for that someone who goes above and beyond and demonstrates those unique soft skills.

    I really do look forward to more podcast on interesting topics in the future.

    Thank you to the grownup millenial and to Lara for that passion you exert.

    Regards,
    Fana.
