How to Prepare College Graduates to Succeed in a Tough Economy

Emsi Chief Innovation Officer, Rob Sentz, joins EAB’s Carla Hickman to talk about challenges facing today’s college graduates and to encourage schools to refocus degree offerings and learning modalities to better prepare their students for the new economy.

They discuss ways to help students acquire a stronger blend of hard and soft skills and then articulate their grasp of those skills to prospective employers. Carla and Rob also share the importance of building a strong foundation during the undergraduate years and then continuing to pick up skills and credentials that align with one’s interests and career goals.
