  • 3. My 3 solutions to the problem: ! Team up with an experienced worker. - (The most practical idea) : Usually interns are involved in low-skilled or simple tasks, working with a experienced worker and be involve in a more challenging tasks will give him/her a estimulating start and condence. The mentor should dedicate some time to guide the graduate toward learning the skills required for the job. ! Participate in a skill led program within a company. - (My favorite idea) Creating a skill-led training program within a company is a way to have a effective structure that could help graduates and currents employees to acquire the skills needed quickly in this fast changing world. ! Play a game to adquire job-related skills in a univesity lab - (the most disruptive idea) Create a game for graduates to test their ability to learn and improve their performance. They will receive a challenge that will help them to learn one or many skills while working in a Simulated Work Environment.
