This hour-long webinar will highlight the skills employers are looking for in the workplace and how colleges can help students develop those skills. It will also discuss some key findings from a recent survey and report conducted by The Chronicle of Higher Education and Maguire Associates, focusing on “what graduates need to succeed” in the labor market.

Participants will learn:

  • The fields where employers believe colleges are doing a good job training students, and where they think colleges are falling short — and why
  • The skills that employers value most
  • How colleges can leverage on-campus experiences to help train hard skills and soft skills among students

The two other webinar speakers are Scott Carlson, a senior writer at The Chronicle of Higher Education, and Sean Gallagher, a professor from Northeastern University.
