Career services are a vital link between a student’s current life and their future life. In recent years, higher education has rapidly accelerated online. In a short amount of time, institutions have improved their digital resources, reached more students, and embraced a data-driven approach.
During this webinar, our panel of speakers will look at how the landscape of career opportunities available to students has changed, and how we can provide support to our students into the future. Our guests will also share perspectives on digitizing services to further support institutional excellence.
This panel of speakers was selected to represent different geographical locations as well as different types of institutions in higher education. Whether public or private, small or large, educators can strategically leverage employability to achieve better outcomes.
