Students are invited to a free, online careers event to hear from entrepreneurs and business experts on how to get ahead in the post-covid world.
Generation Jungle aims to offer a gateway and a greater sense of hope and opportunity with entrepreneurs and business owners offering their services and advice for free in order to address these pressing problems.
The online event will take place on October 8, running from 2 pm to 5 pm and will feature insight from entrepreneurs, training providers and employers on how young people can get ahead after a year of disruption.
Jimmy Williams, CEO of Urban Jungle, is amongst those offering advice on how to find employment in a tough marketplace.
“I feel young people have been cast out into the wild this year and they need guidance and support like never before. It’s been a really tough year for young people, from the A-level debacle to the bleaker job prospects many face. But I believe there are still a huge number of opportunities out there, despite what you might have read.”
Topics under discussion include how to make money through self-employment and side hustles, how to gain crucial skills and take advantage of the ‘tech skills gap’, and what employers are really looking for in the 2020s.
