We know a huge part of the awesomeness of generationYOU is our events. We also know that sometimes you can’t attend because of where you’re located or other commitments you might have! So we wanted to give you the chance to still benefit from our epic #NoFilter content.
Introducing genYOU Digital.
In this online program, we guide you through the trickiest career topics, inspire you with original and curated content and help you learn, develop and grow these key career skills. The program is run completely online, which means you can absorb and learn from the content in your own time and at your own pace.
In 2019 we will focus on the pertinent career topics and skills that you will need to stand out from the crowd and thrive in the workplace.
Skills that you need in addition to your degree.
In genYOU Digital we help you learn and develop skills you need to land your dream job, progress in your chosen career, build resilience, create opportunities for yourself and design a life and career that YOU want.
The program runs for 5 months and will focus on 5 key topics.
Each month, we take one topic and create engaging content (think emails, interviews, videos, original articles etc.) that is fun, challenging and relevant to YOU. All of our content maintains a #NoFilter approach, to give you an honest perspective.
Once you’ve sold yourself on paper the last hurdle standing between you and your next job is the interview.
In this module we’re preparing you to be the best sales agent to represent, YOU! Think: how to manage interview nerves, what questions you should come prepared to answer and what questions you should come prepared to ask and best follow-up practices.
Are you picturing a room full of strangers, many awkward conversations and the excessive exchanging of business cards?
This module will help you tackle one of the most dreaded aspects of entering the workplace. Think tips, tricks and hacks centred on building your confidence, re-wiring the traditional definition of ‘networking’ and inviting you to have some online fun along the way!
These two enterprise skills go hand in hand. In the workplace, you will need to be fluent in responding to your colleague’s/client’s emotions and you need to constantly work on how you communicate your own emotions!
This module will look at giving you the knowledge to build upon and grow both so that you can enter the workforce with a mindset that is a step above the rest.
Having a personal brand is inescapable, whether you have consciously thought about it or not, you already have a personal brand.
In this module we’re going to give you the knowledge you need to create an epic personal brand. One that will help you create opportunities for yourself + shine a spotlight on you and what you can offer the world.
In our final module we’re looking at two more enterprise skills that will solidify your professional toolkit!
Design thinkers are able to approach problems with a multi-faceted view and offer solutions based on their own analysis. Complimenting this skill is leadership – a skill which you can grow and develop regardless of your position/role within a company.
You have two options when joining us in genYOU Digital, you can sign up for the basic, free program (Digital Ninja) or the advanced, paid program (Digital Jedi).

What is genYOU digital?
Our digital program is an opportunity for you to keep developing the skills needed to smash through your career and life goals (whatever they might be). The digital element means that you can absorb the content and participate as you see fit. There are no set hours or set days.
Who is generationYOU for?
Anyone between the ages of 17-25 – irrespective whether you are a school leaver, unemployed, in your first job, a university student, graduate or at any other crossroads! The content is designed to help young people strengthen their enterprise and employability skills (though we do get the occasional ‘older’ participant too!)
What is the difference between your generationYOU events and genYOU Digital?
The aim of both is the same – to help young people unleash their potential at work and in life. However, the delivery is slightly different. We host a number of events throughout the year, whilst our digital program is ongoing and mostly delivered online.
I’m in a role that is in high demand by employers. Why would I participate in your program?
generationYOU steps beyond just finding a job. It looks at the skills you need to progress in your chosen career, to build resilience, create opportunities and design the life you want to lead. There will be plenty of content that will be relevant!
How is the program structured?
Each month will feature a particular theme on a career (or life) related topic. We will explore that theme through written content, resources, activities, discussions and online sessions with local legends.
If you choose the Digital Jedi (paid package) – then your program will also include a test at the end of each month which you will need to pass in order to receive your certificate of completion. Tests are graded on a pass/fail basis (exactly the same as some of your University assessments).
How much time will be involved per month?
We estimate that if you read all the content and participated in all the activities you would be investing a couple of hours a month. However, the likelihood is that you will be more invested in some themes vs others so that will likely fluctuate. There is no lecturer or parent holding you accountable. You can do as much or as little as you like.
What happens if I can't fully participate in all the activities each month?
Don’t worry, this won’t hinder you. After each month you’ll receive a summary of all the key learnings + other resources that we’ve touched on, so don’t stress! There is technically no ‘deadline’, you can go as slow as you like!
How long and hard are the tests at the end of each month in the Digital Jedi program?
There’s no need to stress! The quizzes/tests will be simple, short and easy! Remember as a genYOU Digital Jedi subscriber, you have access to a genYOU Team Member for any issues or questions you may have along the way! Just drop Lisa or Saara and email.
How will the program be delivered?
The program will be delivered through three key platforms:
- A closed Facebook Group
- The generationYOU website
What if I am not on Facebook?
Hmmm… we don’t have a solution to that yet. Just drop us an email and we will see what we can do.
Can I access content from previous months after I have subscribed?
25% Yes and 75% no. At any given point, members will only have access to the previous month’s topic and the current month. With the ever-changing job market, we like to keep all our content as current and relatable as possible.
What happens after 5 months?
We’d love for you to stay active in our generationYOU community (even after you’ve finished the program)! You can do this in a few ways:- Continue to be involved in the genYOU Digital Facebook group – the peer to peer learning doesn’t stop!- Join us for an event- Sign up for our Career Hacks newsletter (we send you a career article every couple of weeks)- Engage with us on our social channels! We’re on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Can you give me examples of your mentors, entrepreneurs and employers?
Sure, have a look through our past speaker page.
How much does it cost to access the program?
You have two options when joining us in genYOU Digital, you can sign up for the basic, free program (Digital Ninja) or the advanced, paid program (Digital Jedi) which is $25.00 AU. The version which suits you best will depend on how much commitment you would like to put into developing your skillset with us!
How do I sign up?
What can I expect once I sign up?
You will receive an email from us confirming your subscription, depending on the program you choose to sign up for of course!
I’m not based in Australia, can I still join?
Sure, the more the merrier! Our online content is designed to be accessed from anywhere in the world.
I have another question for you!
