Bridging the Student and Employer Gap Through “Future Fit”
with Brooke Franklin, Founder & President of Adaptive Creative Solution
Did you know that 83% of Human Resource professionals said they had trouble finding suitable job candidates; and a whopping 60% of employers said that job candidates show a lack of preparation for the roles they seek?
It is because of shocking stats like this and the knowledge that many of ourlocal students are looking for alternative paths to their career futures that the Local Impact Alliance has partnered with the Canton Chamber of Commerce to design this new program we call Future Fit.
We hope that you will join for this very important presentation by Future Fit Program Director, Brooke Franklin. Brooke will details not only why Future Fit is important for our students and businesses, but she will detail how the four-step program works and the impact it will make in our community.
Brooke is known throughout the region as a first-class leader and driver of engagement, specializing in talent pipeline management and K-12 business partnerships. In addition, Brooke was identified by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for the Inaugural Business LEADS Program, which focused on research policy and programs that assist businesses by connecting education and workforce reforms to economic development. With more than a decade of service to local students and businesses, Brookewill share her passion for helping students create a solid future for themselves, while also assisting local businesses.
Enjoy your summer!
We will pick up the series again this fall, beginning with a workshop for high school students and their parents.
