Employers indicate many new graduates lack career readiness to enter the workforce due to a skills gap. It is more likely a skills awareness gap, with graduates unaware/unable to articulate the skills gained from various experiences. With funding from RBC Future Launch, Memorial University redesigned on-campus employment to increase skills awareness. Presenters will share changes and findings from the pilot.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will examine on-campus employment as a high-impact practice
  • Participants will identify actions to increase students' skills awareness
  • Participants will examine data related to the skills debate
