Precarious employment has hit students hardest. I've worked on a study on the outlook for youth in the Canadian jobs market for the next 10 years IAmA.
My name is Ian Bird and I'm the CEO of Community Foundations of Canada. Our Vital Signs study released in October tracked the challenges faced by young job seekers in Canada in the coming decade. Check out the video in the link :)
The study shows that today’s young professional are growing up in an era of complexity and uncertainty. Changes have delayed, or even destroyed, the landmarks that once signaled a transition from one phase of life to another.
I'm taking questions today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in an IAmA about the factors impacting Generation Y and more, what you can expect when you get out into the workforce, and the kinds of skills and resources you will need to succeed in #GenerationFlux.
I will start answering at 1 p.m. Here's a pic of me for verification.
UPDATE: 2:30 ET - Thanks for all your questions and inviting me to be part of this community! Keep the conversation going.
