Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2010
Ingrid Stabb, co-author of "The Career Within You," today signed a partnership agreement with GenJuice, a global network of young college graduates and innovators.
Stabb will help the Gen-Y trend-setting recent college graduates innovate and attract the tools and support they need to see their projects to fruition. Designed as a guide for young innovators of all stripes, "The Career Within You" (HarperCollins 2010) helps these graduates determine their greatest strengths and forge a path that optimizes their talents. Participants in the GenJuice tour will receive tools for assessment of their career strengths.
“GenJuice is preparing to embark on an impressive 12-city tour of Tweetups and 'unconferences' led remarkably by a team of college seniors and recent college graduates," said Stabb, based in San Francisco. "These young people are effective, visionary and responsible beyond their age. I am proud to sign with them as their first partner. The San Francisco NBC station also has GenJuice on their calendar for coverage of the June 20 kick-off event."
Stabb said that after college graduation, young people need inspiration, hope and fulfilling projects. Job satisfaction is at a decades-long low, under-employment is historically high and unfortunately 20-somethings are the worst hit. According to The Conference Board only 32 percent of people under 25 are satisfied with how they make a living. Twenty-five percent of employees are just "showing up to collect a paycheck."
"To be successful and fulfilled, your work life must reflect your true self, including calling upon the strengths you already possess,” Stabb said.
GenJuice Co-founder Arielle Patrice Scott said that GenJuice started because the group was "sick and tired" of young people giving up on their dreams.
"They felt they didn’t have the experience, the money or the right contacts to get where they wanted to go," Scott said. "It was distressing. We became a support network of young people who were driven and all working towards being something bigger than what’s expected of them. Young people across the country need this and just don’t have this kind of network."
GenJuice is going on tour to make that happen. The 40-day, 12-city road trip has two missions: to inspire and to empower.
"We’re going to do that in two ways," Scott said. "We’re going to inspire by bringing some of the best and brightest young people who have already seen tremendous success. We’re going to interview them, put them on the GenJuice website and promote their stories. We’re going empower by bringing more than 1,200 people together at 12 different events in the different cities."
