What Our Partners Are Saying

"The path from college to the first job is changing, and students could benefit tremendously from having early access to career advice and insights from successful professionals in the field. GEN Z has made it their mission to provide such access, which until now was reserved for a privileged few, to all students interested in making the right connections for their career search."

- Rock Jones, President of Ohio Wesleyan University


As a small prestigious liberal arts college, focused on mentored learning, I am always trying to expand the network of young professionals beyond our alumni network who are willing to talk with our students about what they actually do in the workplace and to provide our students with tips on how to navigate the workplace. GEN Z is in this space and I anticipate will be a very helpful tool going forward.

- Lisa Kastor, Director of Career Planning at The College of Wooster


"The 21st Century workplace is complicated and overwhelming to college students. GenZ is a powerful tool which shares information in an engaging way while helping students create important networks that will help them navigate the world of work successfully."

- Hilles Hughes, Director of the Career Center at Marietta College
