The One About Career Readiness

December 17, 2019

Career Readiness is the process of preparing students with skills needed to find, acquire, and excel in jobs and careers.  Because high school and college students are graduating with a "skills gap", companies are forced to pay to bring employees up to speed. To be competitive our kids will have to be better prepared to enter the workforce and hit the ground running.  My dad started me off working as a "junior secretary" when I was only 9. The skills I learned from him and the work ethic he instilled in me were invaluable. I still use everything I learned from him today!

In this episode I sit down with Brenda Williams, whose career has centered on corporate talent acquisition, recruitment, and leadership development for both adults in students.
