PepTalk is an initiative we have recently launched to address the “preparedness gap” for young people transitioning between tertiary study and the world of work.

It is a culmination of over 2-years of research and thinking into the ways in which this “gap” could be filled. We are taking a lean start-up approach to the development of Peptalk so it will continue to be a work in progress.

One of the things we have noticed across all or our corporate clients is they are all dealing with the same issues; graduates not having the requisite skills or capabilities to get up to speed in organizations quickly. What we hear from graduates is that they struggle to get their first “real” job due to their lack of work experience and/or skills.

We have kicked off by setting up a facebook page called PepTalk. This initial step is about establishing a community of young people transitioning from study into work and intends to provide insightful tips, techniques and inspiration to assist graduates in securing that first job post uni or establish their own start-up. Check it out www.facebook.com/TimeForAPepTalk and “like” us!

As we continue with our product and services prototyping and testing we are hoping to collaborate with universities, students associations, corporates and other interested. If you are interested in talking to us contact Sudan at sudan.jeganathan@capabilitygroup.co.nz
