A Roadmap for Transforming the College-to-Career Experience. Rethinking Success from the Liberal Arts to Careers in the 21st Century
Andy Chan and Tommy Derry
The authors developed a “Roadmap for Transforming the College-To-Career Experience.” National thought leaders from a variety of disciplines, employers, 74 premier higher education institutions and others gathered at a conference to discuss the importance of enhancing the college-to-career transition. Many ideas were examined, but everyone agreed on one point: schools must reexamine their existing models and construct new methods to help students successfully enter the world of work. This paper has been populated with ideas, opinions, innovations and advice by the conference attendees on how to improve the college-to-career experience on campus.
