The New York Times
The youngest generation of women in the workforce — the millennials, age 18 to early 30s — is defining career success differently and less linearly than previous generations of women. A variety of survey data shows that educated, working young women are more likely than those before them to expect their career and family priorities to shift over time.

10 career lessons you should learn by your 30s
Fast Company
Some of the most important lessons you learn during your first decade working in "the real world" come from one source: the school of hard knocks.

To hold women back, keep treating them like men
Harvard Business Review
Are men and women different? While almost every executive anywhere in the world says yes, most diversity policies are designed as if the answer were no. Recently, the Global Head of Diversity of a leading professional services firm said she "didn't want to be treated differently." That's why most professional services firms are still hovering well below the 20 percent female partner level. As long as men and women are treated exactly the same by organizations, most women will continue to be shut out of senior roles.

The networking mistakes you don't know you're making
Fortune
Job seekers today are on the move every four years, and for millennials it's even more often. Whether passively or actively, their eyes and ears are almost constantly open to new opportunities. What was once a yearly event has now become a ritualistic activity.
