Zach Clark, Co-Op Director of Student Activities and AssessmentJoin the IUP Career and Professional Development Center on Monday, April 8, 2019, in the Elkin Hall Great Room for their upcoming workshop, “Generations in the Workplace,presented by Zach Clark, Co-Op director of Student Activities and Assessment. There will also be networking following the event with employees from Clark Associates, the employer sponsor for this program.  

This event is part of the CPDC’s Career Ready Seminar Series, which was created to provide targeted events to help IUP students gain and understand the necessary skills and competencies to be successful in life after graduation. 

Graduating college students are entering the workforce and, for that matter, society in very uncertain times. Today’s college students—members of Generation Z—are having not only to navigate life as a new professional, but also must understand the complexities and differences among the different generations of Americans: Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, Generation Z, and Alphas. How will you find your success in all this murkiness, and how can you leverage generational differences to your advantage?

Students will leave with a better understanding of how all these generations understand society, education, leadership, technology, and, more seriously, impact the ways in which they interact in the professional workplace.

Kelsey Thompson, assistant director of the CPDC, helped to coordinate this event, and said, “We are excited to be bringing Zach Clark, director of Student Activities and Assessment at the IUP Co-Op, to speak with students, not only about the generational differences students might encounter in the workplace, but, more importantly, how they can use both the differences and similarities to work together effectively. Zach does a fantastic job talking about this topic, so I am excited to provide this opportunity for students to learn more.”
