Good Grades Are Not Enough
by Bob Roth - Nov, 2013
College students should be aware that employers look for much more than just good grades. Employers believe that well-rounded students who have had a broad range of on-campus and off-campus work and learning experiences tend to perform at a higher level than students whose experiences and performance were limited to classroom. The best employers seek students who have proved that they can excel in more than one environment....
A Letter to My 20-Year-Old Careerist Self About What Really Matters
by Karen Vitale - Mar, 2013
It’s a classic Catch-22—with a careerist twist. When facing big decisions early in your career, you don’t have tons of real-world experience to draw upon. And by the time you’ve actually racked up a decent supply of workplace wisdom, you may feel like you no longer need career advice. If only career tracks came with fast-forward and rewind buttons. (Or a blue police call box, for those who like to time travel in style.) Wh...
Why English Majors Don’t Have to Finish Last
by Jay Cross - Feb, 2013
What if my degree isn’t marketable?” I have always been fascinated by the assumptions behind this question. They get echoed back to us in remarks like: “Ugh, what are you going to do with philosophy?” “You majored in psych? Enjoy grad school for the rest of your life.” “Hell of a job market out there for that English degree!” Someone has apparently decided that math, science and engineering are the only majors th...
Is Your College Committed
by Bob Roth - Jan, 2013
What does it look like when your college is fully committed to student employment success? As they say, “You will know it when you see it.” When your college is fully committed to student employment success, everyone in the entire college community (not just the Career Services Office) is both responsible for and accountable for helping students learn about, prepare for, find and land good jobs. Therefore, if you are...

by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jan, 2013
Yesterday I received a call from a community college out east. They may want to hire me to provide a motivational presentation to their undecided female students sharing the benefits of nontraditional careers, i.e., male-dominated. What a great idea! Many female students enter college undecided about what major to pursue, and ultimately, what career path to choose. These students range from 18-year olds to those in their 40Œs...
Choosing a Career Training Program? Evaluate These 3 Key Support Services
by Marcia Robinson - Nov, 2012
As a new immigrant to the United States in the mid 1980's I searched for a career training program that would augment my job skills. My goal was to transition quickly into the job market. As I evaluated programs I learned that choosing a career training program was not just about the academics. Choosing a program was also about key support services the school offered. After looking at both 4-year and 2-year programs, I chose a...
If the Job Doesn’t Fit, You Must … Well … Quit
by Hallie Crawford - Nov, 2012
I had a great conversation with Jamie Harrison at Black Enterprise magazine recently. She wrote a very interesting article, If the Job Doesn’t Fit, You Must … Well … Quit, about knowing how to evaluate job opportunities and whether they’re a fit for you! This is a process that’s different for every individual, so keep that in mind. Here are some additional thoughts I wanted to share with you… 1) GET A JOB: As a college stu...
Seven Reasons Why College Students Become Unemployed or Underemployed
by Bob Roth - Nov, 2012
In recent years, the sad fact is that fifty percent of all college grads have been unable to land good jobs. The reasons for this statistic can be traced to a variety of reasons including the economy and a poor understanding of the employment process. Too many students fail to follow the steps that are most likely to lead to employment success. They prefer to ignore their employment goals until the senior year. Since gat...

In a market where clients are used to measuring your worthiness based on a college degree, opportunities can feel slim for those without that traditional seal of approval.

College Career Centers Are Challenged in Preparing Students for Work
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2012
The skills gap is getting wider. According to the Job Preparedness Indicator research conducted by the Career Advisory Board in late 2011, only 14 percent of hiring managers felt that job candidates had the requisite skills to fill open positions. At the Career Advisory Board, which is presented by DeVry University, our mission is to help job seekers and careerists advance, so we decided to go to the front lines and as...
