[Webinar] The College Career Office That Local Employers Love

Presenters:

Searching for ways to improve career outcomes for its students, Denison University reached out to alumni regarding their own professional experiences. What could be done to give students an edge?

To answer this question, the college began a discovery process involving employers, advanced online course tools and student interest. In a “design thinking,”’ empathy-driven style, the university laid out criteria for a solution, then decided to offer micro-programming courses through its career center – but only between semesters.  

Find out how Denison achieved its goal and became a college of choice for talent recruiters.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to find the intersection of the students’, employers’ and college’s goals
  • Questions to consider when sourcing course content
  • How to help students with professional exploration and readiness
  • How to build relationships with employers
