From new technologies to DE&I commitments and social responsibility programs, young people nowadays have highly specific requirements when weighing up potential employers. Canvas8 spoke to nine people from across the US to find out what’s important to them when looking for a job.
Flavia Russo is a behavioural analyst at Canvas8. After gaining her MSc in international development from KCL, she worked as a translator and researcher in the non-profit and political risk sectors. There, she gained experience conducting qualitative and ethnographic research, from which her passion for analysing cultural and behavioural trends develops. When not working, Flavia loves spending time with her many cats and dogs, travelling to exotic locations, or playing tennis.
