“A business without millennials is a business without a future,” says author Lee Caraher. “Either [brands] hire millennials, or [they] might as well shut down.”
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that 13.6 million people 20 to 24 years old and 31.2 million people 25 to 34 years old currently hold jobs, and Steven Rothberg, founder and president of CollegeRecruiter.com said 2015 is “the strongest year of employment growth” for millennials since 2007.
This growth greatly affects those hoping to land a job in PR and marketing, and younger job candidates have even more opportunities to dispel negative workplace stereotypes with the plethora of career opportunities now available.
CareerCast recently released a list of the top 10 jobs for millennials, with advertising account executive and social media manager making the cut. For younger communications professionals obsessed with measurement, job prospects also look good: Data scientist and market research analyst were also among the top jobs for millennials.
