‘With Renewed Focus On Outcomes, Colleges Expand Career Centers’

Vermont Public Radio

January 9th, 2014 by 

With employment rates dropping and nearly half of recent graduates either unemployed or underemployed, career planning services at colleges are becoming a vital component to the academic experience.

In a recent radio broadcast by WGBH, Amy Murphy, director of career planning at the College of the Holy Cross, says career planning is designed “to round out [student]  academic experience, and support them in finding opportunities to try out the skills they develop in the classroom in a work environment.”  She adds that institutions now see career planning as an obligation to their students, rather than the value add-on it was for previous generations.
