Event Description

Prepare Graduates for a Workplace That Prioritizes Competency over Degree

“Competency-based hiring” is the buzzword in the “new workplace”—today’ recruiting environment where having a college degree (or multiple!) is not enough to wow employers. Job candidates must demonstrate they can deliver results and successfully contribute to a company’s bottom line. This means universities and colleges must also shift their thinking to competency-based curricula to prepare students for life after graduation. Has your institution made the change?

Join higher education consultant Charlene Talbot-Paul as she provides you with strategies to prepare students for the realities of today’s workplace. You’ll learn why employers have shifted to aligning their recruitment efforts around business results, how you can evolve your programs towards classroom-to-career pathways, and what you can do to close the skills gap—the disparity between employer needs and the tools post-secondary education provides.

After attending this audio event, you will be able to immediately put into practice solutions that will equip graduates for their professional futures. You’ll also learn the benefits of evolving your practices to meet the demands of the new workplace—as well as how to address and counteract the challenges of making this significant and important change.
