Youth – especially those most at risk – need to have access to relevant and practical information in making decisions. — Employers need to reach out to students earlier, during their high school years and communicate clear priorities to youth.
Here’s what McKinsey and Company found in its recent study:
Bridging Canada’s Path from Education to Employment
Canada’s Employers are less likely than those in other countries to have frequent interactions with “Education Providers”.
Most Canadian Education Providers don’t think their
role is to help graduates find a job.
66% of Canada’s employers believe new graduates are unprepared for the workforce.
56% of recent graduates agree, they are unprepared.
83% of education providers believe graduates are well prepared for the work place

The picture that emerges from the McKinsey research is one of confusion for young people. Employers and Educators are not aligned on what skills are important and should be emphasized.
At most 25% of graduates have experienced paid internship or coop while in college or university.
Consequently 60% of Canadian Youth say they have inadequate information when time comes to make choices.
Note: Idea Connector Network is launching Career Circle in May 2016,
Another ICN initiative to help address issues facing Indigenous and non-Aboriginal youth.
