Emsi will be hosting a panel at the Close It Summit: Using Data to Get Employers, Higher Ed, and Regional Developers on the Same Page. Time: 10:40am – 11:55am on Tuesday, 26th (Palmer House, Chicago)
Yesterday, Emsi launched the Career Coach Resumé Challenge: a new initiative to thank our higher ed clients and celebrate the release of our all-new version of Career Coach. During the challenge, CareerBuilder will donate $1 to a college’s foundation for every unique resumé uploaded to CareerBuilder by students, alumni, and friends. It’s a win for colleges who fundraise by connecting students to the workforce. It’s a win for students who get exposure to employers while giving back to their alma mater.
A new study by the National Bureau of Economic Research reveals that by and large, community college students don’t know which majors are more likely to lead to successful careers. They also overestimate and underestimate certain things like salaries and employment probabilities (respectively) in ways we might not expect.
