The State of Graduate Career Preparation and University Recruiting in the United States

Brought to you by: The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE)

In this session, we will explore the latest trends in career readiness and employment outcomes for U.S. graduates, including what it means for students to prepare successfully for the world of work. Using data NACE has obtained over the past two years from employers, students, and colleges to glean key insights, we will delve into the employment landscape, the importance of internship experiences, how virtual recruiting and virtual work and work modality are impacting the marketplace, the employer’s view of how higher ed is addressing career readiness, and how outcomes vary by race and gender.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the labor market in the US for recent college graduates, what employers are seeking, and actual reported outcomes of recent graduates.
  • Understand how experiential and career readiness experiences in undergraduate education impact employment outcomes.
  • Be able to identify how internship experiences and employment outcomes vary by gender and race and how colleges can impact on this.
  • Gain insight into how virtual recruiting, virtual internship experiences, work modality, and the social justice movement have disrupted the recruitment and preparation of graduates.
