  4. 4. Fifty Idea Generation 21. Have more group works, group presentations in school to prepare them to relate well to soon colleagues 22. Schedule a tour to different hiring companies 23. Provide opportunity for college students to interview employers for expectations prior their actual job interviews 24. Have a regular peer evaluation to help students learn from each other 25.

  5. 5. Fifty Idea Generation 31. Have students grade themselves based on their weekly improvement 32. Hone speaking skills through the numerous oral exams 33. Help the students make personal goals 34. Inspire students on how their every performance can build a better nation 35. Companies should schedule at least 3 meetings with student applicants before accepting or turning them down 36. Companies should provide each student an objective evaluation of their application 37. Companies should provide continuity from taking students as interns to actually hiring them 38. Companies should initiate rapport with student. Not applying intimidation. 39. Companies assure students they have no biases/discriminations 40. What if more companies make their own colleges!
  6. 6. Fifty Idea Generation 41. What if there’s a one week probation for student applicants in a company to give them a chance to prove themselves 42. What if actual hiring starts on the final year of college students so that teachers can still assist students on how to cope in the workplace 43. Watch videos of the workplace set up, even job interviews 44. Parents support 45. Encourage students to apply to more than three companies 46. Schools should be at par with the expectations of the companies 47. Colleges should maintain high excellence standard for their students 48. Also give seminars on failure stories, and how they managed to cope 49. Prepare students on a list of options in case their first tries fail 50. Regularly pray with the students.
  7. 7. Three Idea Selection 1.The most practical idea (one that could be easily implemented): “Include a course in personal development.” Practical because it can easily be organized in a college set-up. It can either be a separate subject or a required elective. And the result can be immediate.
  8. 8. Three Idea Selection 2. The most disruptive idea (one that would make a huge impact, regardless of how feasible or affordable it is) “What if more companies make their own colleges!” Wouldn’t it be easier if companies mold their own people according to their specifications. That way, students will not have to go through the limiting process and possible failure of job interviews??
  9. 9. Three Idea Selection 3. My favorite idea (one idea that you are excited about for whatever reason... you don’t have to justify why) “What if actual hiring starts on the final year of college students so that teachers can still assist students on how to cope in the workplace”
  10. 10. Three Idea Selection 3. My favorite idea (one idea that you are excited about for whatever reason... you don’t have to justify why) “What if actual hiring starts on the final year of college students so that teachers can still assist students on how to cope in the workplace”
