Research

Zink is gathering data from Morningside College business majors to analyze their workplace values. The study is a longitudinal study that will gather data over a 25-year period.  The goal is to analyze trends over the long term to try and identify the source of changes (if any) and how it relates to business practices. At this point, data has been collected from around 500 students.

In the past year, she presented workshops to students, peers, and the public on using the powerful presentation tool Prezi to replace PowerPoint, on how to write a job-winning resume by including job-transferrable skills, how audience awareness improves writing, how to integrate movies into the classroom, and how to successfully hire the right person every time.
