Designing Career Services for the Future

Of first-year college students, 85% say their main priority upon graduation is to get a good job, yet 72% of recent college grads are struggling to find entry-level work. How can colleges rethink their career services offerings to help bridge the college-to-career gap?

Join The Chronicle and the University Innovation Alliance to explore how students, college leaders, and employers view the gap and what needs to be done to fix it. During the Virtual Forum, “Designing Career Services for the Future,” a panel will discuss:

  • How should career services evolve to better equip students for the real world?
  • What skills and qualifications are employers seeking now?
  • How are innovative career services helping students find success?


  • Bridget Burns, chief executive officer, University Innovation Alliance
  • Ian Wilhelm, assistant managing editor, The Chronicle Of Higher Education


  • Brenna Gomez, director of career integration, Oregon State University
  • Amir Badr, chief executive officer, Upkey
  • Andy Chan, vice president, Innovation & career development, Wake Forest University

With Support From Ascendium.
