5 Lessons Learned From Networking with Thousands of Millennials

Play Video

Over the past two weeks I have been in Detroit and Flint, Michigan, and caught up with a lot of friends and family I haven’t seen in a while.

The last week of March I also attended the National Convention of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) in Detroit  and it was the perfect opportunity to talk and network with my target market.

I served as National Vice Chair or the organization in 2009, and this was also a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and learn what everyone was up to.

NSBE is a student run organization with hundreds of chapters across the country including undergraduates and professionals in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) majors and professions.

Over 15,000+ people attended the convention and I feel like I had conversations with all of them. I literally had over 1000 conversations during the convention!

Today I share my top takeaways, and the lessons I learned networking with thousands of black millennials and the NSBE National Convention.

Here’s what we cover:

  1. The Pressure To Perform
  2. Hard To Find Direction
  3. Lack of Guidance and Mentorship
  4. Traditional Career is Over
  5. Full of Energy but Afraid of the Unknown
