genYOU Micro Stories 03

Our generationYOU micro stories are a collection of refreshing insights from millennials that are on their way to unleashing their potential.

For our next micro stories series, our intern Mikky headed out to pick the brains of 10 students on Brisbane’s QUT campus to hear their thoughts on questions we had regarding the journey from studying to a career. Part 3 of the micro stories showcases the answers of 3 of these inspired students that she spoke with.

How are you working on or towards your ‘WHY’?

“For me, my “why” is still constantly changing but I am still working towards it by continuing my studies and slowly developing where and who I want to be.”
>> Georgia Waldon

“I’m applying for jobs and I’m working hard at Uni to get good marks and I apply myself in it.”
>> Jack Elmendorp 

“I suppose I am working towards my “why” through life. Every day I learn more, experience more and understand more. This all contributes to my life journey and figuring out what I will become and where life will take me.”
>> Remy Buday

What is a challenge you’ve had to overcome on your study/career journey so far?

“I think the biggest challenge I’ve had to overcome is probably realising that the work I put in will be worth it in the end. Sometimes I lose sight of the end game.”
>> Georgia Waldon 

“Just balancing life, work and social life. It becomes tough to find time to study at times.”
>> Jack Elmendorp

“A challenge I have had to overcome has been moving interstate for university. Stepping out of my comfort zone and meeting new people has been a very empowering experience.”
>> Remy Buday

What do you think is the best things millennials will bring to the workplace?

“Millennials have grown up in this day and age with technology and heaps of awesome stuff so I think we bring a new way to do things to the workplace and new ideas on how things can be done.”
>> Georgia Waldon

“I think just bringing fresh ideas is the main one. Bring new and good ideas to the table.”
>> Jack Elmendorp

“I think the best thing millennials will bring into the workplace is a sense of openness and acceptance. Millennials have been raised in a more accepting and celebrated society.”
>> Remy Buday
