Don't let your hippie-boomer mom guide your career.
For many young people today, the most trusted source of career advice is their parents. Unfortunately, a lot of parents are giving a lot of misguided advice to their kids.
Today's workplace is very different from the one baby boomers navigated. But often they don't realize that, and think the "classic" advice still applies. It doesn't. Here are the five worst pieces of advice that parents dole out:
1. Get a graduate degree
2. Don't job hop
3. Don't ask about time off until you have the job
4. Don't have gaps in your resume
5. Earn enough money to pay rent and buy food
But what does this say about this?
