IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 13, 2012) - CareerConnection.me, today announced the launch of its interactive online career learning community designed for young adults. The community's seasoned mentors and member-peers guide and navigate young adults through realistic strategies to successfully enter the job market. The site's programs help them launch and land meaningful, tailor-made careers. The community also provides parents with an affordable and shared learning experience that equips them to help prepare their kids for today's colleges and workplace.
"CareerConnection.me is a unique concept that addresses a growing need for today's parents and young adults," said Founder Jan Slater. "Available resources that help bridge the gap between school and workforce are shockingly limited. This means the millennial generation is not as prepared as it should be to enter the workplace or sustain meaningful careers." (Introduction to CareerConnection.me - http://bit.ly/ShOYj6)
While the millennial generation may find it difficult to conceive of working a five-day work week, eight hours a day, and possibly not like what they are doing, baby boomers, who hold the majority of top management roles in today's workforce, often find it difficult to relate to the millennials' diverse work ethic perspectives.

"We really didn't know what made these kids tick," says Bill Markle, CEO of Glumetrics, a medical device company located in Irvine, Calif. "As we learned more, we realized we needed to improve our hiring process and create a new paradigm. Using tools found on CareerConnection.me, we've learned how to engage these new young employees right away to help them adapt to the workplace and plan their futures. These kids are very interested in 'what's next,' and smart companies better have an answer."
CareerConnection.me provides insights and practical strategies that nurture a better understanding of work expectations from both camps. It emphasizes teaching, learning, support and advice geared specifically for the young adult facing career decisions, a first job, or a career change.
