Jul 29, 2021 | News & Updates

The Centre for Employment Innovation at St. Francis Xavier University invites participants for a study about young professionals’ mental well-being during the transition from post-secondary into the workforce.
This study is attempting to identify how employers can better support the mental well-being of young professionals during this transition.
Participation will include a 60-minute interview during which you will be asked to share your experiences as a young professional, and what your employer did or could have done to support your mental well-being throughout this transition.
We are seeking participants who are residents of Nova Scotia, aged 18-29, who have graduated from post-secondary since 2019 and entered the workforce in a full-time position that falls under at least one of the below criteria:
◘ a permanent position, or
◘ a contract position lasting longer than 2 years, and/or
◘ is directly related to your completed education.
