Today's college students are not ready for the workplace. Their employers say so, the college career center staff say so, and the students and recend grads themselves say so. And this comes at a time when students are facing one of the most difficult job markets ever. "SURVIVE the Corporate Jungle" is a lively and dynamic presentation is packed with practical information about the "soft skills" that so many next-gen employees lack. With an upbeat and positive tone, the emphasis is what students can do to be successful in their first job after graduation. In the process, they reframe their attitudes and establish reasonable expectations about the workplace. The program can run from 30 minutes to an hour as required by the schedule. It is ideal for programs for Seniors, for Career Week and Career Fair events, and Parent Week activities for students about to graduate. The presentation is based on the new book "7 Success Secrets That Every College Student Needs to Know!"; a free evaluation copy is available on request.
