Help Your Students Get Ready for the Workplace
It’s well-documented that today’s recent graduates are struggling in the working world. Employers complain about poor work ethic, lack of personal responsibility for decisions and actions, and poor verbal and written communication skills. But it’s not entirely the students’ fault; many of them simply have not been told that skills such as these are important.
As a result, when they get out in the working world, they get frustrated and angry and impatient with their lack of success and satisfaction in their jobs.
Alfred Poor is ready to help.
The fact is that students today need more than a good resume, more than good interview skills, and more than good job search strategies. The three are all essential to landing that all-important first job after graduation, but students also need to learn how to hang onto that first job. They need to learn how to be successful at it, to find satisfaction in their work, and to become valuable additions to their companies.
The presentation is based on content from Alfred Poor’s book, “7 Success Secrets That Every College Student Needs to Know!” In a positive and upbeat program, he explains commonsense strategies that will help students stand out and excel in their new jobs. He provides information such as:
- Three essential skills that will gain the support of co-workers at all levels
- One surprising lesson from fast food that applies in any job
- What their primary responsibility is, no matter what their job description says
Measurable outcomes, guaranteed.
At the end of the presentation, you will see an immediate change in your students. They will:
- Be more confident about their ability to succeed in the workplace, and
- Learn at least one new strategy that they can apply in their jobs.
And you will get the measured results that prove these outcomes. Alfred Poor backs all his presentations with a 100% guarantee; unless you are completely satisfied with the program, he will refund his speaking fee.
