​COVID-19 is reshaping the U.S. economy in real time impacting millions of Americans. In the coming months, new college graduates will be entering this transformed labor market defined by new workplace, recruiting, and work practices.

  • What can higher education leaders do to prepare students for the new landscape?
  • How does career readiness look different than it did even a few months ago for students planning to enter the job market in the coming year?
  • Will students seeking to advance in their careers be forced to seek different types of opportunities because of economic disruption?
  • Do new competencies become central? Even after the COVID-19 crisis, for example, will it continue to be more important than ever to demonstrate an ability to work remotely?
  • Do these changes require new approaches to instruction, assessment, and student support?
Watch the recording of our expert panel to learn how to adapt practices at your institution to help your graduates succeed.
