Us Millennials have a lot of valuable skills to offer today’s job market. We’re “digital natives”, we understand the world of technology as an innate part of our lives. But when we get our first real job, we might discover a couple areas where we are lacking, and that we need to develop in order to be truly versatile and valuable to a company. That’s why it might not be a bad idea to find an entry level job when you’re starting off. You can make mistakes there without having a huge impact on your professional reputation.
