Get the Resources YOU Need to Prepare Graduates for a Competitive Job Market!
Learn 10 techniques that will help you get more resources!
Remember the good old days?
As recently as 2007, the percent of grads that had jobs by the time their president or dean handed their diploma to them was over 50%. Since then, the number has plummeted to approximately 20%.
This creates a positive, and negative effect for your organization.
On the positive side:
- More students will enroll for advanced degrees, hoping it, as well as an improved job market, would be their best option.
- At the same time, laid off employees, high school students, and those who had some college, will enroll in college in order to increase the likelihood they’d get a job.
This increases enrollment and generates more revenue. Ah, but eventually, it creates more work for you and your department!
On the negative side:
- Graduates and their parents are questioning the value of their degree, and their investment in it. You see it every day in news articles, blogs, and discussions at the water cooler, "Is college worth the $100,000 investment?"
- We are entering an era where political, government, and customer demands, will require you to post job placement information in more prominent locations. Imagine a student having to sign a document (similiar to closing on a house) where they acknowledge they have seen the employment stats of your college.
Congress is already requiring for- profit colleges to prove their students are getting "gainful employment" so they can pay back their loans. And, just recently the American Bar Association announced that law schools will provide employment information to the U.S News & World Report. Spokespersons for U.S. News & World Report indicate this will change college rankings.
What's the point?
- Is your upper management looking at the long term effects of this on admissions, student retention and contributions?
- While the number of students securing a job by the time they graduated plummeted, did your management invest more money and resources in your department?
If you are like most organizations – they haven't!
