Burned-out millennials need careers, not just jobs: Smith

January 11, 2019

“[W]hat educated millennials need isn’t just jobs; they need help plotting a course that will reliably lead them to upward mobility and justify the expense of their education,” writes Noah Smith. The author goes on to list the challenges that millennials must confront in an unstable job market, which is not so much defined by joblessness as a lack of stability and meaningful, fulfilling careers. Smith then recommends that governments implement policies to compensate for the precariousness of the gig economy, while adding that post-secondary institutions should help soon-to-be graduates better visualize a career path characterized by unpredictability. BNN Bloomberg (International)
