A major American private research university located in the Northeast came to us because it needed help increasing the impact of its career services department. Specifically, it was looking for innovative ways to better prepare students to meet the workforce of the future.
The career services department was able to secure additional resources from the university. It built a new career center that led to an increase in student application and graduate employment rates.
Entangled Solutions designed and facilitated a Future State Design workshop and then built a future of career education plan to expand career agility.
This private research university offers a rigorous academic community for nearly 7,000 students. The university was known for its small size, ideal student-to-faculty ratio, and vibrant campus, but it wanted to increase its preparation of students for the workforce.
The university came to us to help it integrate career education in students’ curricula in order to prepare them for the workforce of the future. We designed and facilitated a Future State Design workshop with more than 40 senior leaders. From that work, we built a future of career education plan to expand career agility for all students by integrating “work” skills into every discipline.
Armed with a new plan, the career services department was able to secure additional resources from the university. It built a new career center program that improved the graduate employment rate and the university’s reputation as a leader in career service.
