Are graduates ready to enter the competitive job market? If not, what are we as leaders doing about it?
In our latest webinar, we sit down with experts to discuss the skills gap leaving recent graduates behind. With 53 percent of graduates unemployed or working in a job that doesn't require a bachelor's degree, we need to level-set on what the purpose of college is, how to deliver the goods to students, and ways to truly set up graduates for career success.
Watch: HELPING STUDENTS BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN COLLEGE AND CAREER
In the video, our panelists speak on:
The soft, or human, skills gap hurting graduates as they enter the workforce.
Methods administrators, faculty, and staff can use to bridge this gap.
Ways to leverage online learning for a well-rounded college experience.
Providing great student experiences is at the heart of NSLS programming. Learn how we've connected with students across modalities at over 700 campuses and how easy it is to bring a chapter to your school.
