The Folsom Community Center was bustling with activity on Friday as more than 600 hopeful job seekers came to meet with some 65 companies looking to hire at the Tri-County Job Fair. They could connect directly with recruiters, tap into resources for the unemployed and even get a free professional photo for that perfect LinkedIn profile. Staff from the Brandman University campus in Roseville helped organize the event and I was there with the Brandman news crew was for this video story.
Millennials are avid consumers of news, but they are not willing to pay for it, a new study found.
Millennials are anything but “newsless,” passive, or uninterested in civic issues, according to a new comprehensive study of the information habits of people age 18-34. The research looks closely at how members of the Millennial generation learn about the world on different devices and platforms. The study finds that Millennials consume news and information in strikingly different ways than did previous generations. Contrary to popular perception, they keep up with news that is commonly referred to as “traditional” or “hard,” as well as stories that connect them to hobbies, culture, jobs, and entertainment.
It was a pleasure to be back on Good Day Sacramento discussing the Tri-County Job Fair and providing tips for viewers.
