Josh Miller:  Let's Talk Junior-Level Employment:

The post-pandemic working world has resulted in too many junior-level employees starting their career on the wrong foot.  According to the Achiever's Workforce Institute, only 13% of junior-level employees consider themselves mentally well, and only 16% consider themselves to be engaged at their job.  In this dynamic and thought-provoking presentation, attendees will be exposed to a new perspective on entry-level employment and leave optimistic about the opportunities that can arise when an entry-level employment experience is crafted thoughtfully. 


1) Realize the primary drivers of a positive entry-level employment experience.

2) Understand the ROI on investing in internship and junior-level programs

3) Identify opportunities to create cultural stinking points for juniors

4) Contextualize the current workforce reality within a macroeconomic framework

5) Emphasize with what Gen Z is balancing as they enter the workforce
