Monster and the Pivot network have teamed up together to create nine segments for Take Part Live surrounding Monster’s Find Better initiative that focuses on millennials and even includes a veteran segment.  Take Part Live is a topical show that tackles timely issues without taking itself too seriously and provides stories and conversations that matter to millennials.

To check out Take Part Live, visit Take Part Live. We strongly encourage you and your readers to view the digital shorts provided the day after each Find Better segment at Take part Find Better.  You can find the segment schedule below:

“Josh Shipp did an incredible job of breaking down the unique barriers that young entrepreneurs face. It’s easy to get caught up in the potential freedom that self-employment brings…but with that potential, there’s an inherent risk. Shipp revealed both sides of the entrepreneurial coin fairly.”  - Daniel DiPiazza – Under30CEO

Check out the segment, “Be Your Own Boss

Josh explores the entrepreneurial spirit amongst millennials – whether it’s building a business from scratch, or going full time into the freelance market – what are the risks? An expert speaks about tools available and the pitfalls to avoid, as well as highlights top five resources for those planning to work for themselves.

  • Great way to feature millennials as employers, too – consider what to think about when hiring someone over 40 (different generations); raising the issues, being the youngest one in the room
  • Digital short could feature: what employers are looking for, challenges/biases/etc. hearing why someone didn’t make the cut

11/11 —Career, Country (Veteran’s Segment)

How do young vets returning from service integrate into the civilian workforce?  We talk to an expert about taking advantage of the GI Bill before looking for work versus how one who has served his/her country can find a job without a college-education.  In studio, a young vet joins Josh and our hosts to discuss topics such as what’s next for them, how they’re adjusting their lives after serving country, employment, re-acclimating into their communities, the changing relationships with their friends and family, outlook on their future and finally, best next steps.

What is it like to be a female in a male-dominated field? Josh speaks with a woman who has experienced her career in the science/technology field.

In-studio, we discuss why there are so few women in certain fields and highlight strategies to encourage more females to pursue those paths.

Shipp and specialists discuss the best ways to identify potential career paths for chosen fields and explore potential challenge/pitfalls that lie ahead. During the package, experts provide tips and tools to determine, on an individual basis, the careers for which some millennials are best suited. Creative or unexpected ways to get where you’re going.

So you got the job, now what?  Josh talks to experts about first job expectations, discussing what kinds of leverage entry-level employees actually have.
