Revolution in Career Services - Curran Consulting Group

curranconsultinggroup.com [cached]

In this article, Sheila Curran, President of Curran Career Consulting, and Steve Goldenberg, CEO of Interfolio, share a candid and provocative discussion on the future of career services in colleges and universities.
Sheila: That's an interesting question, because in all the articles I've read about the impact of the economy on graduate hiring, I have only once seen reference to worried students flocking to career services. Sheila: Probably the first reason is that many fall career fairs-and even some held in the winter-were full. To students, employers at career fairs means available jobs. Sheila: Absolutely, but they'll need a completely different approach. Sheila: Actually, I'm calling for a revolution in the way business is done in career services. Sheila: Absolutely. Here's why. Sheila: It's possible, but it's not easy. Sheila: You're absolutely right. Sheila: You probably provide the best example, Steve. Sheila: In my new model, the careers office would still have just as many staff; they'd just be working on different tasks. So I'd say this to the career director: If your credentials person is a great performer, re-train her for one of the new roles. Sheila: Any good public relations firm will advise that when you have bad news, you need to talk about it before it hits the media. Sheila: No, although it's certainly essential to address the current needs of the class of 2009. Sheila: Yes, but the proactive approach must go way beyond setting expectations about how a student can get from college to a career they love. Sheila: Absolutely. Sheila: It means we recognize that the careers world is constantly changing, and that we need to adapt with it. Sheila: You're right. Sheila: The connection between a liberal arts degree and a career is definitely much less obvious when the subject matter of that degree is not the content of a person's career. Sheila: I start from a very strong viewpoint that most Careers offices can't get there from here. Sheila: I'm talking about mission "scope creep". Sheila: Absolutely, but the reality is that's not going to happen in this economy-unless, of course, you happen to be in a business school that wants to increase its standing in the rankings. Sheila: The key is that the Career Community would be made up of individuals with whom Careers staff already have, or are prepared to build, a relationship. Sheila: You're right, but it's worth shifting some staff responsibilities, or eliminating less useful programs, in order to facilitate relationships with volunteers and expand Careers staff knowledge. Sheila: Since the Career Community members would be volunteers, the only financial outlay would be for training and appreciation events. Sheila: You're right, but in a recent poll I conducted, almost two thirds of Alumni and Careers offices claimed to collaborate only occasionally or rarely. Sheila: The Careers office of the future needs to be a key player on the institutional stage. Sheila: The short answer is "no". Over the past thirty years, careers have changed out of all recognition and parental demands for an economic value to their tuition investment have increased to a fever pitch.
