Learn how you can transform the way your students identify their ideal career based on their interests and passions.
Most career services offices assign students to advisors based on the students’ majors. But a small handful of institutions, including Rutgers University and DePaul University, have restructured into a small number of career industry clusters — which help students think more broadly about career options and mirror more closely the future world of work.
Join us online to learn how both Rutgers and DePaul have implemented this new career clusters model. Rutgers has six years of experience utilizing the model and can share success stories (including a spike in student engagement), while DePaul is new to the model and can speak to transition challenges. You’ll leave with ideas for cluster-specific programming, marketing, technology, and employer relations.
The co-presenters will showcase the successes and challenges of the career industry cluster model at each of their campuses with a focus on the following:
- The key drivers necessary to implement the model and the types of support you may need to start a similar model on your campus
- The building blocks of the model itself and how the model works once implemented
- Advice on how to get started on your own campus
