Empathizing with employers - how to recruit graduates Empathizing with employers - how to recruit graduates Presentation Transcript

  • Empathizing with employers – how to recruit graduates Prototyping two solutions Carsten Weerth, Bremen/Germany Stanford University – Design Thinking Action Lab
  • Empathizing with an Employer The task was to look at the transition from a student to graduate which is entering the workforce. I chose to empathize with an employer and created the following statement: Employers need a way to recruit flexible, well educated graduates because the job is difficult and [it] needs adaptable and flexible workforce.

  • Ideate and creating 50 solution During the next phase I created 50 possible solutions in a brain storm process. This resulted in three favorable solutions: • 40. • • Create combined sponsorship/trainee programmes in which you pay tuition and receive a graduate 41. Create a lifelong learning environment which inspires graduates (and employees) 46. Encourage common research projects between colleges/universities and your business View slide
  • Prototyping and Testing I The final phase is about prototyping and testing. The fist step is to create two prototypes, the second is to test them and get feedback. Two solutions were choosen: • 40. • Create combined sponsorship/trainee programmes in which you pay tuition and receive a graduate, and 46. Encourage common research projects between colleges/universities and your business View slide
  • Prototyping and Testing II • 40. • • • Create combined sponsorship/trainee programmes in which you pay tuition and receive a graduate Highly qualified graduates are in demand for your business They are difficult to recruit Considering the high tuition fees in the US for high quality education you decide to seek your future employees before they enter college / university
  • Prototyping and Testing III • Details: • A high class education is very expensive. So you • • should pay tuition for a student which is by contract required to work for your business for the following 10 years. No tuition and debts for the student and you receive a well educated and highly motivated graduate... The graduate will have the security of a career The business is able to train the student on the job in an approach in which he/she can have early internships and phases in the business
  • Prototyping and Testing IV • 46. • • Encourage common research projects between colleges / universities and your business This is a unique way to create collaborations between the universities and your labs or businesses. It will create many spin-offs and generate many top graduates which will want to join your (research related) business... The colleges/universities will be glad to get in touch for research and applications of their research
  • Prototyping and Testing V • Details: • Students might get interested in your business • Internships can be offered • Funding for research and publications could be • • made Funding for internships or the tuition fees of desired students could be arranged Spin-off from the research might be beneficial to your labs and business and create new opportunities
  • Acknowledgements... This presentation was made for ‘Prototype and Test‘ - the seventh assignment of Leticia Britos Cavagnaro‘s MOOC Design Thinking Action Lab, Stanford University. This assignment builds on the fifth assignment ‘Empathize and Define‘ and the sixth assignment ‘Ideate‘.
