Corporate Training

Great on the Job works with human resource departments and university career service centers to design and tailor GOTJ workshops to meet a company’s or school’s specific training needs.  Audiences range in size from 25 to 250, with 60-100 people being the norm.

Workshops typically last between 90 and 120 minutes (it’s hard to get your employees to break away for a full day and students don’t like to sit for much longer than two hours).  Office hours are often scheduled as well to give participants an opportunity to ask follow-up questions off-line.

Workshops are tailored to reflect a company’s core culture and workplace environment.  Case studies are customized and developed with input from clients.  Often, young professionals at the client will spend time test-driving the GOTJ content before a presentation to make sure everything is realistic, on-point and 100% relevant.
