The world of work is rapidly changing. Over the past decade, the average U.S. job has seen 30 percent of its skills change — and colleges are charged with rapidly evolving their teachings to prepare students for the workforce. No longer able to rely on graduation rates, institutions must demonstrate that graduates are finding jobs in their chosen fields with the skills they learned at the institution. If they don't, enrollments will fall, public skepticism about higher education will grow, and lawmakers will take note.
What do colleges need to do to make sure their graduates can successfully make the transition from classroom to career?
Purchase this set of The Chronicle’s best-selling reports to ensure your students are prepped with the skills they need to succeed in the changing work force. The set includes Building Tomorrow's Work Force and New Pathways from College to Career, and together they provide a comprehensive toolkit for campus leaders.
Building Tomorrow's Work Force 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.
New Pathways from College to Career provides insights into employers' views on those questions and more. Rich with data and examples of colleges successfully placing their graduates, it also examines several growing job sectors and the emerging skills needed to work in them.
