The class of 2023’s post-secondary experience was quite different to recent generations, spending a large portion of their studies learning remotely caused new graduates to report a sense of unpreparedness for the workforce. Despite the feeling of unpreparedness, recent graduates possess in-demand skills that will give them a competitive edge in the job market. According to a survey conducted by TalentEgg, a career resource provider dedicated to Canadian students and recent graduates, 77 percent of new graduates are worried about inflation and 54 percent report concerns about the looming recession.
According to Mary Barroll, TalentEgg’s Chief Executive Officer, “They’re also feeling somewhat unprepared for the workplace, which doesn’t surprise me. After three isolating years of working and studying remotely, students and grads have had less opportunity to have experiences in the workplace that [aren’t] remote. We’re seen a big increase in employers wanting to work with us recently, which means they have more jobs that they’re trying to fill. Across the board most of our employer clients – and they are typically big enterprise clients who are looking to build a pipeline of young talent – are actively hiring students and grads. Students would be well advised to remember how resilient and adaptable they’ve proven themselves to be. They can use those lessons in resilience and adaptability to navigate a changing world, and they should take pride in the fact that they’ve done so well under such difficult circumstances”.
