Nancy Schaefer on CBC Metro Morning

YES in the Media

February 1, 2013 – Nancy Schaefer, President of YES, was interviewed on CBC Metro Morning. Nancy provided job search advice to recent university graduates and specifically to a young woman, also on the show, who had graduated with an MA in Environmental Studies. This graduate has not been able to find a job in her chosen field. Nancy stressed the importance of getting help in the community from a youth employment agency who has good connections to employers, and the necessity of networking. University graduates, faced with the daunting task of breaking into their field, should consider taking an entry level job for the time being while they continue to build their skills and experience.
