Event Description

In this webinar, Hanover Research will present our newly released asset, "Top Career Skills for New Grads in 2024," as well as proven best practices in higher education in order to think strategically about aligning to workforce needs. Additionally, during this webinar, higher education leaders highly skilled in working with workforce alignment strategies will present on their own institution’s goals and plans; and provide insight into how other institutions are thinking about the topic. Federal, state, and provincial governments around the world are increasingly demanding that colleges and universities demonstrate workforce outcomes from their students. Meanwhile, employers often report a misalignment between the skills needed in their employees and what graduates possess. To promote the success of graduates, many institutions are eager to improve their workforce alignment strategies. You won’t want to miss this all of the good stuff that will be presented during this webinar.
