Interviewing in a Multigenerational Environment
For the first time in American history, five generations of workers—ranging in age from early 20s to late 60s—are interviewing prospective candidates in the same workplace. This experience is akin to mixing the cultural differences and dynamics that get played out at a holiday meal with the complex and sensitive issues that come with hiring qualified candidates. How does a job applicant prepare for this hiring environment? This course is a good fit for prospective job applicants and hiring professionals alike. If you are a prospective job applicant, this course will prepare you to be interviewed by members of four different generations and will equip you with the elements to be selected. Additionally, gain key insights on how to be interviewed and how to convince team members of each generation why you are the right person for the job. Also, learn how to create and demonstrate a work culture that is friendly to multiple generations, which is necessary for employee selection.
