The stakes have never been higher for our students with the increasing cost of tuition, high employer expectations and an ultra competitive job market. In the work you do with students, you may see many of them struggling with choosing a major, understanding how to overcome obstacles, or figuring out what is next for them post-graduation.
Employability now requires more than a degree alone. Our students now need to demonstrate a variety of skills to prove they will be dependable and valuable employees. The earlier students participate in the career planning process, the better their chances will be in finding academic, personal, and career success!
