In the interest of bringing some different perspective to the conversation, I recently interviewed a couple of Human Resources professionals representing contrasting generations. The topic is workforce trends. First up is Jessica Treft, who is a Human Resources Coordinator in Minneapolis specializing in on-boarding, organizational development and team-building. In this interview, Jessica shares some of her insights and observations on the topic at hand from the “millennial” perspective.
If you're age 50+ and in the midst of a career transition, more likely than not you're experiencing unique challenges specific to your generation. Let's face it, most of us who are defined by “The Boom” have had personal encounters with age discrimination in the job search process—unjustified though it is. How many of you have intentionally trimmed the timeline on your resume in an attempt to appear younger and thus, more attractive to potential employers?
Today I'd like to share 5 ways to calm your mind that have proven successful for me and many others.

Recently, I re-discovered something very significant about myself—something I hadn't even realized I'd lost.

So, from here on out, this site is certified 100% bull free! Getitrealguy.com is your official free-range, grass-fed, no pesticide source for real-life rantings and ravings on any and all things past, present and future. As the tag line suggests, the idea here is for me to call out people and events each week (or more frequently if I feel the urge) that cause the needle on my crap-o-meter to spike in the red. I'll attempt to offer up a slice of real-life perspective in response. My motto is: I may not always get it right, but at least I'll get it real.
