Generalist Advantage


E7: Is Generalism Dead with Gen Z?

Why Listen: If you want to learn more about Gen Z, their views and how they navigate their career.

Julie interviews Beverley Carkner, a marketing professional with over 20 years of experience across various industries, including publishing, tourism, government, self-employement and now medical. 

In episode 6, we talked about the career and schooling choices you have to make as a teen.  And how the pressure of picking that one career still exists today.  So I connected with two GenZ’ers to investigate how they navigated these choices.  Whether they admit it or not, it was obvious from the first conversation I had with them, that they are generalists.  From a young age they not only have multiple interests, they already were well accomplished in many domains.  I can only imagine what’s in store from them. 

Join me as I chat with Anthony Valenti and Tyler Sharma, who short of graduating from law school, have their hands in so many things that I can’t even being to describe it all here.  What I do know, during the entire conversation, their mindset and perspective was fascinating to me.
