About the blog
20somethings Blog is a blog about twenty-somethings and how they’re faring in this economic climate.
The posts are divided into two main categories: the first, News & views, consists of links to news articles and editorials about twenty-somethings and the job market. I often add my own commentary based on my experiences as a twenty-something trying to find employment.
The second category, 20something profiles, are posts written by twenty-somethings who discuss their experiences and opinions on beginning a career in this economy. So far, over 100 young adults in 12 different countries have shared their career stories on this blog.
If you’re in your twenties and would like to write a 20something profile, please go here for more information.
The purpose of this blog is to provide twenty-somethings with encouragement and advice about starting a career. I want people in their twenties to know that they’re not alone; there’s a whole generation of people who are dealing with the same issues as they are.
And I want people who aren’t in their twenties to have a better idea of what our generation is going through. We hear all the time how young adults are struggling to find employment, but how often do we hear about their experiences or their emotions?
No matter what age you are, I hope that you enjoy this blog and that these posts inspire you as much they’ve inspired me.
