FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sandra Gabriel speaks to youth about navigating career and educational paths.
TORONTO, ON, (Feb 02, 2011)—Sandra Gabriel, chief relationship officer for Gabriel Press & Relationships (Gabriel PR), Toronto PR agency, spoke to a group of youth at the Center for Education & Training (CET) in Mississauga, ON last week, about how to navigate their way through choosing a career and education path.
“I remember how it was for me when I was looking for jobs and trying to decide on an academic career,” says Gabriel. “I wanted to be able to give them the guidance that I did not have, but also to show them that their current challenges are normal and will soon come to pass.”
Gabriel only spoke to the group briefly about knowing their talents and determining what their passionate about. She also touched on how to be prepared for an interview, but the majority of the time was spent on discussion and responding to the direct challenges that the youth were facing in the job market.
“I didn’t want to just speak to them, I wanted to discuss with them and get them talking about what their challenges were so I could address them directly,” adds Gabriel. “It’s one thing to share your experiences and what you know and another thing to engage with an audience and talk about those things that relate to them.”
“We were so happy to have Sandra come and speak to our group,” says Jillian Ferris, placement specialist at the CET. “Guest speakers help the youth understand the real world through other peoples perspective. It definitely enhances the learning experience for the group.”
