Event Details

Get More Staff and Resources to Increase Visits to the Career Center!

Presented by: Don Philabaum, CEO - TalentMarks

December 18, 2012 at 1:00pm ET


A new study by NACE for the Career Advisory Board surveyed 593 career services professionals to learn among other things, how prepared they thought grads were for their first professional job search.

And the verdict?

Those surveyed overwhelmingly felt graduates were “academically prepared, but not marketplace ready.”  

  • 56% cited students’ lack of interest in formal career preparation and professional development as barriers to grads successfully finding a job.
  • 55.7% said students resumes were not ready to be presented to potential employers.
  • 48.1% said students were not "job search ready".

The survey also asked career services professionals what they would need to help students better prepare for their first professional job search:

  • 26.3% suggested an increase in one to one conseling of students.
  • 38.8 suggested more time to follow up with students.
  • 7.7% suggested they needed more time to find quality jobs to list.
  • 24.3% suggested they needed more time to build relationships with employers.

Based on the current situation for your career center, do you see any of this happening?

Join us for this one-of-a-kind distance learning event to learn 10 ways you can appeal to your management to get more resources for your career center in order to better prepare your graduates for their first professional job search.

In this critically vital web presentation you will learn how to:

  1. Use stats to show a need.
  2. Start a discussion comparing your piece of the budget pie to what other campus departments receive.
  3. Show you can improve retention.
  4. Show you can help recruiting.
  5. Develop a student four-year plan.
  6. Deliver services more cost-effectively.
  7. Rebrand your Career Services Office
  8. Generate your own revenue.
  9. Reach out to volunteers.
  10. Identify the ‘Cadillac’ example.

We are now going into the fifth graduating class since the economy tanked.  If you are like most career professionals you are dealing with staffing cuts, budget cuts and students less prepared for a job search market that has drastically changed by the use of social media, competition and decades high unemployment.

Find out which of these ten ideas will help you get more resources for your department. 


unemployedgradYou will also receive a copy of the white paper, 10 Ways to Get More Resources for Your Career Center, and a copy of Don's new book, The Unemployed Grad, And What Parents Can Do About It!  The book was written to encourage parents to require students to take ownership of their career the minute their son or daughter gets on campus.
