Hiring managers and recruiters are looking for candidates who can demonstrate their ability to apply knowledge and skills in real-world settings. In fact, 86% of hiring managers indicate that it is “very important” that job candidates demonstrate the ability to apply knowledge and skills in real-world settings, according to Hart Research. But only 39% of hiring managers believe that the average recent college graduate is well prepared to apply these skills in real-world, professional settings. This presentation, led by award-winning student affairs professional Dr. Tierney Bates, will address how to prepare your students for a possible recession and a changing job market, become career ready, and add to their unique value proposition.
