  • Hi! My name is Mitchell Hislop
  • I go by Mitch
  • And I’m a millennial
  • I will be 20 in exactly one week
  • There is proof of that here, *click* and proof that I am not photogenic
  • I’m a student
  • At Hamline University
  • I work at
  • fahrenheight360
  • And I like to have fun. In my down time I
  • Am a student congress representative
  • A former professional rock climber
  • And a former camp counsloer
  • Now, I did this all at the same time
  • I am never without either my phone or planner,
  • And I am really sad I left so much open time this week (the white space)
  • To me, Work=Life
  • And life=work
  • I need work to be challenging
  • engaging
  • And fast paced
  • Take my job at fahrenheight360
  • Where I am a “marketing assistant”
  • Which means I do just about anything
  • For instance, last week I did
  • Market research,
  • Some networking,
  • Some pr planning
  • A little campus marketing,
  • And coffee making
  • Now, I have been doing this since I was very old. In my last year of high school, I
  • Received my eagle scout award,
  • Planned and carried out a 2wk trip to hawaii for 20 people
  • Compeated nationwide in climbing
  • Was the captian of our school mock trial team
  • Attended MN boys state
  • And worked
  • Now, you may wonder why my plate is so full. The short answer is
  • That one day I will be president, but the long answer is
  • Because I’m a millennial and its just how we work. So the real questions is
  • Are you millennial ready. Well, hopefully myself and my partner in crime
  • TereseCorey Blanck will help you answer that question.
  • Terese is a family oriented outdoorsy person, who
  • Loves to travel. She has been to all over the world and even lived in Japan, and she is also a
  • As self-described connector of people has her
  • Masters in education, and is a life long learner with credits toward her Doctorate at Columbia University
  • Terese is an entrepreneur, who wrote two books for the Millennial Generation and their parents, titled,
  • The college to career roadmap.
  • She also speaks all over the nation about the topic of millennials in the workplace
  • In her downtime, which she loves, terese is
  • And avid runner, and also
  • A musician, who plays 4 instruments, and even wrote a lullaby for her daughter
  • Now, terese is constantly asking questions, usually about the bigger things in life
  • Back when she was in school, Terese was tossed out of her religion class for asking too many questions
  • Now, I could sit here and bore you to death with the reasons you should listen to her,
  • And talk up all her credentials, like the fact that
  • she has been working with colleges, students, and parents for the last 20 plus years, or that
  • Or that 12 of those years were on college campuses, or that the other twelve were in the private sector of business ,
  • I think that it is more important how she is able to relate to my generation.
  • When terese went to college, her parents dropped her off, and told her to call Sundays after 11. That year, she only went home on weekends, making her independent, like much of my generation. Her experience is almost exactly like what mine was last fall when I started college.
  • (T starts here) The similarities don’t end here. Mitch and I are also very alike when it comes to what motivates us in the workplace. HOWEVER&lt; …you just saw a Millennial presentation and now you will see a cusper …..Gen X//Boomer presentation.
  • All of the past generations listed challenging and stimulating work as their #1 motivation. Gen Y must be different…
