In order to work efficiently and actively engage Gen Z in graduate programs and potential careers, it is important to understand this generation’s wants and needs within the workplace. So, how to build an graduate programme for Generation Z?

In the next edition of EBDialogue: “How to build a graduate programme for Generation Z from A to Z”, we will try to answer this question and much more:

• What are the types of programmes they want to get involved in (volunteering, extra activities, work and travel, internship, full time job, career events/workshops)?

• When are they available to start working in a professional programme/ entry-level job?

• What is the biggest challenge facing Gen Z?

• What are the things that would discourage them from applying to an Internship/ Trainee/
Management Trainee/ Entry-Level Job / Internship programme?

• What are the salary expectations based on the experience gained so far?

Register for this upcoming EBdialogue, when we meet in person, on April 18th, for the 10 A.M. coffee break!
