Join 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
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.”
