Preparing students for a rapidly changing work force
The world of work is rapidly changing, buffeted by automation, artificial intelligence, globalization, and, most recently, the pandemic. Over the past decade, the average U.S. job has seen 30 percent of its skills change — and the pace of change has only accelerated since Covid-19 began. What do colleges need to do to make sure their graduates can successfully make the transition from classroom to career?
This report examines the pressing challenges that colleges face — a shifting recruitment landscape, the rise of remote work, and persistent inequities in employment outcomes for underrepresented and first-generation students, among them.
