Graduates Struggling to Prepare for Their Careers and Job Search
Busy students barely have time to work on their career!
The vast majority of the Class of 2011:
- Have not created a career plan
- Developed an active career network
- Visited the career center
Studies are showing:
- 80% of graduating seniors do NOT have jobs by graduation day
- Unemployment for those under 25 is nearly 20%
- 80% percent of college graduates are moving back home after they graduate
- Graduates are not prepared for their interviews and their job search
After spending tens of thousands of dollars on their child’s education, parents are understandably worried about their student's chances of getting a job.
Now parents can protect their investment in their student’s education and increase their chances in getting noticed in a very crowded job market.
Talentmarks provides a suite of experts, consultants, mentors and coaches that will help graduates in career exploration, job search skills, interviewing, networking, using social media like Linkedin and Facebook, to build a network and much more.
TalentMarks has developed unique relationships with Career Centers and Alumni Associations to provide students with a suite of advisors to help them get jobs. TalentCoaches provide one on one virtual coaching to graduates on a core curriculum. TalentMentors are alumni volunteers that network them with their business and alumni contacts.
TalentAgents actively promote and market the student through the business connections and networks the student built and TalentManagers oversee the entire process to make sure the student has the right knowledge, skills, and connections.
Don Philabaum, CEO of TalentMarks suggest,
” It’s no secret that students are unprepared for their career search. Career Centers have great staff but they are overworked and can’t give individual attention to students. TalentMark’s team of professionals literally swoop in and provides each graduating senior one on one attention. We make sure the student knows how to present themselves, how to manage their job search, network and interview successfully.“
Parents are invited to attend a Webinar to learn how they can help their grad plan, organize and execute their job search.
