Creating a Culture of Value in Your Organization
Wednesday, November 7, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (EST)
Career services are the unsung heroes of the university community. You are the ones responsible for ensuring that students’ learning experiences come to a satisfactory conclusion, yet sometimes it seems like you don’t get any respect. Budgets are continually being cut, and you have to struggle to get both students and staff to recognize the importance of your work.
The truth is that your job has never been more critical, as huge percentages of college students are graduating into the real-world without the necessary preparation, contacts, and skills, and unemployment rates among this group are sky high. The days of resting on your laurels and waiting for the university to fund you and students to knock on your door are over. It is time for you to step in and showcase your solutions.
This straight-talking webinar for the Career Services Leader will cover how to create a culture of value in your organization, including how to determine and communicate your value succinctly, how to increase your visibility in the university community, how to gain support and backing for your programs, and how to motivate your staff to do their best work.
