Increase employability of graduates with impactful strategies
Technological advancements in recent years mean that the workplace has changed dramatically and will continue to change into the foreseeable future. Universities have the challenge of not only educating their students but also preparing them for employment. The most challenging aspect in all this is the huge discrepancy between education and the corporate world. In order to boost employability rates for their students, universities are now moving away from traditional strategies to more innovative methods to suit the new generations.
What questions do your students have about their preferred employers? Are they familiar with the day to day takes involved in their desired job function? Are they aware of the changes happening across industries due to technological advances? These conversations between students and companies is essential to bridge the gap between university and employment.
How a university approaches employability is extremely attractive for students. How many opportunities does your institute provide for students to interact with employers throughout the year? Universities who create opportunities for career growth and advancement boost their ratings, their students employability, and successfully attract new students to the curriculum.
