Charting a Path: Career Services
for The Adult Student

Tuesday, April 10, 2 pm ET | 11 am PT

 

With some 80 million adults lacking any college degree and another 15 million without a bachelor’s, colleges are realizing the growing imperative to better serve older students. Surveys of adults who do attend college show that their greatest source of dissatisfaction revolves around career services and advising.  For any institution looking to serve this important population, that means career advising – attuned to the particular needs of adults – must be a strategic priority.
 
This hourlong webinar will discuss the key components of an effective, adult-focused  career-services operation and the role that university leadership plays in ensuring success for those programs. Drawing on the insights of experts from an established adult-serving university, an innovative community college, and a newer, online institution, participants will learn:

  • Techniques for adapting career services programs into the lives of time-pressed students
  • How to develop and nurture relationships with employers
  • Emerging ideas for using individualized “career maps” and other tools that can students plan their educational path
  • Ways to evaluate the effectiveness of career-services operations
