The Student Side
You simply cannot achieve high employment success
in all your programs unless your students are putting
in as much effort into their job search as you are in
securing recruitment from potential employers! The
problem is most career schools and colleges provide
their students only with opportunities to learn how to
write résumés, answer interview questions, and dress
for success. These are individual skills useful at some
stage of the process, but are simply not enough to be
successful in a 21st century technology-driven job
A 21st century job search requires self-directed job
search and personal marketing skills that are rarely
included in school curricula or taught at career and
placement centers. So instead of designing an
effective job search campaign, the typical graduate
begins looking for work by exploring postings on
Internet job boards or reading ads in the newspaper,
or worse yet, simply waits for calls from the career
center office; a prescription for extended
unemployment and marginal employment success rates.
