What green changes can you make at work or school? ♻ Our GREEN Employee Resource Group (ERG) posed this question to its members and gathered some great tips that we couldn’t help but share. Casey M. reminded her colleagues to turn off their computers at the end of the day to conserve energy. Luke B. says that he chooses to walk his daughter to Kindergarten rather than drive since the school is so close by. Rachel T. reminds us that if you don’t make your coffee at home, you can still bring a reusable cup to your favorite coffee shop. Jared M. tells us that his family has been using Lunchskins reusable sandwich and snack bags for years, it is a great alternative to single use plastic. These small changes can make a big impact – what green habits have you discovered this year?

It’s time to destigmatize vocational schools to better support all learners who seek to improve their lives and achieve their dreams through education. Employers, organizations, and the education system must evolve to create better opportunities for work-based learning, both in-person and virtually. With job openings and unemployment at a record high, employers still can’t find enough skilled workers to fill their roles. One of the largest and most persistent issues is the stigma that surrounds career and technical education. With misconceptions running rampant, enrollment in vocational schools has continued to decrease, significantly impacting the economy. Our education system is contributing to this problem. Cengage Group recently hosted a LinkedIn Live event to raise awareness about the stigma that still surrounds trade education. Watch the recording of our EducationLIVE to listen to Jane Oates, President of Working Nation and former U.S. Department of Labor official, Eric Rubio, Heavy Duty Truck Instructor and Air Force Veteran, and Cengage Group CEO Michael Hansen discuss this

    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cengage Group (United States) in Mar 2019


    Had 6 interviews. One on ones with the manager and their manager and then group interviews with various other people I would be working with. Everyone was friendly and not too intimidating, but definitely got asked meaty questions.

    Went down the list of technical skills I had one my resume and asked me brief questions about each of them.
