What must higher education deliver to students who are intent on finding the right career—in a time of huge shifts in the job market and tangible uncertainties about what lies ahead? Lakeisha Mathews, director of the Career and Internship Center at the University of Baltimore, tells The Chronicle of Higher Education that every student should know that his or her career development is the job of the entire campus.
"We have faculty who we sit down with and we create career-related projects or career-related assignments," Mathews says in a Chronicle video, "How 3 Experts Say Colleges Can Prepare Students for 21st-Century Careers."
Mathews says it's of vital importance that students understand and appreciate the connections between what they learn in class and what they'll discover in their chosen careers. That's a process that shouldn't take place in isolation.
"Career development is the job of the entire campus," she says.
