The Millennial Career Struggle

July 18, 2019

In this episode we chat to four millennials who currently struggle or who have struggled with their career. Millennials get a bad rap for not settling in one career or trying to do too many things at once. Is it a millennial thing? Are we just indecisive? Do we just have FOMO? Or do we just take on too much because have one steady job is no longer realistic?

Philip Volna

Philip is a Ukrainian digital content strategist, self-help consultant, and entrepreneur. He is also the author and founder of the website lifetomake.com.

From a very young age Philip felt very lost and suffered from depression. At around the age of 14 he felt pressure to figure out what career path to take but didn’t know what he really wanted to do. At such a young age he noticed his family and other families struggling from paycheque to paycheque and he knew that he didn’t want the same.


Torry is a young professional working in Victoria, BC. She hosts a podcast called Ready to be Petty, which discusses reality tv, celebrity gossip, pop culture, and stories that have happened in her life (all things petty, after all). In a world that often deems women’s interests as superficial and fangirl culture as unintelligent, Torry is attempting to be real and honest about her passions and interests, in hopes that you will join her. She is ready to make your morning commute a lot more fun. You can listen on your favourite podcast app and follow her podcasting journey via social media here: https://linktr.ee/rtbppodcast.
