Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg offers important and valuable advice for millennials looking to find employment in today's job market. Sandberg has become a voice of authority when it comes to women in the workplace and career guidance for recently graduated college students.
She explains how technology is changing at such a rapid pace today that it is transforming traditional hierarchical structures and creating huge shifts in power. When companies are growing this quickly and experiencing a lot of change, careers within that organization will take care of themselves.
Sandberg advises individuals to seize any and all opportunities. She says, "If you're asked to take a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask what seat, just get on." Details, according to Sandberg, can be dealt with later.
