Episode Description

A 2016 ManpowerGroup study found that 84% of Millennials are considering a future career break, meaning Millennials are anticipating career breaks in greater numbers than we've ever seen before. In this episode, Carol talks with our very own Manager of Strategic Initiatives, Shannon Amspacher. Shannon discusses the word “prelauncher,” which she coined, and her perspective as a Millennial on taking intentional and unintentional career breaks. Carol and Shannon also cover the cost of taking a career break, the changing conversations within Millennial households pertaining to “The Second Shift” division of at-home responsibilities, and implications for employers.
