Preparing Generation-Next (Gen Z) with what they need to know about the Workplace!

Are you interested in helping the next generation preparing to enter the workplace?

Please read below:


An invitation has been received [and graciously accepted by yours truly] from Gaby @ KCI via the Communitech BEP Coordinator for me to present to and motivate Grade 11/12 students who are preparing for their Summer Co-Op / Intern / Work-placement with local companies.


In developing an activity based presentation and seeking input/contents that will assist in preparing the Generation-Next [GenZ] to be valuable during their placement and gain from the experience.


Having been through this experience as an employer or student, we know things we did well/bad, things we should/should not have done, etc... What advise, guidance, ideas, thoughts would you like to impart to the next generation?

If you are inclined to help, please send your thoughts, ideas, experiences, likes, dislikes, view, opinions, etc... to me and I will attempt to incorporate as many as possible into the presentation.

I can be contacted via email: john[at]resourceful[dot]ca or send me a message on Twitter or Facebook.
