It’s pretty darn awesome that I’ve been able to couple my 15 years of corporate experience and my many more years of life experience and channel it into doing write-ups for a company called The Experience Factory! When they reached out to me to write for them, it was a no-brainer for me. They had identified a problem, and I wanted to be part of the solution with them!
Never heard of them? Here's the scoop.
The Experience Factory’s vision was born out of the recognition that our education system alone cannot bridge the gap between the knowledge and skills that graduates attain from the respective qualifications, and what is required of them in the working/business world. This is even more significant for those from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. Basically, to get experience, you need experience – and this the problem The Experience Factory addresses. Their program simultaneously tackles unemployment among graduates, while providing employers with nurtured talent. This is done through applied learning workshops, a shared peer learning platform and one-on-one mentorships.
How wonderful to be part of the solution! Check it out for yourself here:
