The entire notion of career is shifting and so are requirements for students entering the workforce. What are the core competencies the upcoming generation needs for success? Does creativity matter? Explore the results of a recent survey conducted with 1,000 hiring managers nationwide, focused on two key questions for educators: which competencies are important and how job seekers can best demonstrate their skills and knowledge? In this webinar, we’ll discuss gaps that exist in preparing the next generation and see what innovative institutions are doing to close them.
