webinar series

 

While career practitioners are accustomed to coping with and adapting to a “rapidly evolving workplace,” they may be less used to working with “rapidly evolving jobseekers” who are now entering the workforce in droves. The arrival of the Millennial Generation has ushered in exactly this new phenomenon. Career practitioners must now grapple with a workforce being rapidly changed by technology, at the same time as advise a new kind of demographic, one that has been raised in a world of technology unknown to previous generations. This 3-part series will provide strategies, techniques and tools to work with Millennials as they transition from school, at all different levels, into the workforce.
Pricing:

  • Full Series BCCDA Member: $119

About the Webinars:

Webinar #1 – Tackling the Under-Employment Syndrome Affecting 40% of Grads in Canada Tuesday, April 11, 2017, 9:00 am – 10:00 am PST (or 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET)

Studies and reports show that 40% of today’s university grads spend anywhere from two to five years underemployed after they leave campus. This means approximately 582,000 grads in Canada will struggle to launch their careers and waste years in positions that do not require their four years of academic study. However, a recent study confirms that university training is valued by employers and results in well-paying positions that increase steadily in earning power. This webinar focuses on the emotional state that leads grads into an underemployment cycle and offers concepts and ideas to help them avoid it.
Webinar #2 – Adding to the Resume with Online Personal-Branding Tuesday, April 18, 2017, 9:00 am – 10:00 am PST (or 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET)

Resumes, while arguably outdated, are still asked for by employers and thus Millennial jobseekers need to know how to do tailored, polished resumes. Starting with some outside-the-box thinking about modern resumes, this webinar will look at the opportunities online to create a personal brand which enhances and may ultimately replace entirely the use of resumes in the job-hunt and job-hire.
Webinar #3 – Reverse-Mentoring as a Career Launch Strategy for Millennials and an Employee Retention Strategy for Employers Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 9:00 am – 10:00 am PST (or 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET)

Although often criticized, the Millennials, who grew up as “screenagers,” have something valuable to share with older generations. They naturally inhabit the world of digital marketing, content marketing, and the power of social media to advertise and engage. This webinar will introduce the idea that the tech-skills Millennials have can, in fact, act as a useful strategy for launching their careers. Achieve employment enhancement for your youngest jobseekers while serving employers who benefit from technology-mentoring.

About the Presenter:

In December 2015, Fraser was brought onboard Vancouver startup C2Careers, to develop and design curriculum that would help college and university graduates launch their careers. She now teaches in a transformative “career bootcamp” where Millennials engage in live business challenges, and apply career theory, tools and techniques to explore passion, purpose and academic skills.
