More about the presentation: 

Industry and recruitment trends and the increasing pressure on the ROI of a college education call for the entire university to be engaged in preparing students for work. Old Career Services’ approaches to working with faculty and staff no longer apply to this new landscape. Career Services must leverage their unique position straddling between industry and higher education to serve as consultants to the campus community. This presentation will share the outcomes of the MPACE 3i grant that served to educate faculty and administrators about industry and recruitment trends through targeted programs and communication strategies. We will share what we learned along the way in “bringing industry to campus” and involving the entire community in preparing our students for work.
