I changed the original theme for Thursday's episode of Passion in Action TV from "Find a Dream Job" to "Create a Dream Job." The main reason is because the more I thought about it, a bunch of "dream jobs" aren't just waiting to be found. If that's the case Millennials wouldn't be struggling so hard to find a job out of college. Did you know that, according to a May report in the New York Times, the U.S. has the highest rate of unemployed young adults (26.6%) between the ages twenty-five and thirty-four? This is higher than in other larger, wealthy economies, including those of France, Britain, Germany, Japan, and Canada. Further evidence of how difficult this job market is for Millennials and young minority adults: according to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data in 2012, 63 percent of 18- to 31-year-olds had jobs, down from the 70 percent of their counterparts who had jobs in 2007.
The truth is the job market hasn't just been difficult for Millennials and minorities to find basic jobs (let alone dream jobs), it's been hard on everyone. Fortunately, all is not lost. I believe God put the desire and capacity inside all of us to do meaningful work that is unique and fulfilling to how He designed each of us. The challenge is identifying where that work is.
That's why I'm excited about this week's show, because my special guest, Frank T. Mitchell, is a Human Resources and Talent Management expert who will share his perspectives and experience on how to create your dream job versus just hoping it exists somewhere. A recession can't stop God's blessings from getting to you!
