    • Summary

      According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, millennials are projected to be the largest generation in the work force as of 2016. Not far behind them is Generation Z, who by 2020, will account for 40% of all consumers. Millennials and Generation Z share a different perspective and skill set than previous generations due to an almost infinite number of resources available to them. Learn best practices and strategies for working with millennials and Generation Z currently in college and for millennials already in the work force. You will receive a 360-degree view into this topic from career services and university relations and recruiting thought leaders, who bring first-hand experience in both advising and hiring millennial and Generation Z students. Explore questions asked and lessons learned from others in your field as you and your colleagues share your experiences.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Expand skills needed to prepare and advise millennial and Generation Z students throughout their career searches;
      • Apply helpful strategies that have been used successfully when working with millennials in the workplace; and
      • Identify research and information that supports the importance of generational diversity in the workplace.
