5 Lessons Learned From Networking with Thousands of Millennials
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:
- The Pressure To Perform
- Hard To Find Direction
- Lack of Guidance and Mentorship
- Traditional Career is Over
- Full of Energy but Afraid of the Unknown
