Making sure grads are more prepared for jobs than interviews - Lisa Malat, eCampus News

Reevaluating the college-to-career roadmap to help students achieve career success. According to a recent study, surveyed students may be more prepared for an initial interview than for the skills required for the job—a trend that could ultimately affect recruitment and retention efforts at colleges and universities. As seniors prepare to graduate in May, job hunting has officially commenced, with students beefing up their resumes, attending networking events, honing interview skills and sending out applications. However, a study conducted by Barnes & Noble College and Why Millennials Matter found that many students today are falling behind on the college-to-career roadmap. This should be concerning not only for students, but colleges and universities as well. http://www.ecampusnews.com/top-news/students-career-skills-478/
