Amidst a significant demographic transition, characterized by the gradual retirement of the baby boomer generation and the ascension of Generation Z, projected to represent over 30 percent of the active workforce by 2030, the importance of initiatives like this cannot be overstated.

The Career Day attracted a diverse cohort of Edward Bernays University students, demonstrating keen interest in participating in workshops, partner presentations, and a thought-provoking roundtable discussion. Additionally, students seized the opportunity for intimate discussions with internship partners through structured speed dating sessions, facilitating meaningful exchanges and providing invaluable insights into internship prospects and career trajectories.
