Students Don't Do Optional

  1. 1.  Institutional accreditors have requirements that colleges must meet.  Colleges have requirements for each student who wants to receive a diploma.  College Departments have requirements for their majors that must be met in order to graduate.  Could it be because students don’t do optional? What do the majority of graduates want after they receive their diplomas—to get a full-time job and start life “post-school” (16+ years of school, so they are ready . . . but we know they aren’t “ready”), correct? Yes, some will go to graduate school; however, what will they want after that? A job. Is a degree(s) alone sufficient? Certainly not. Relevant experience and key skills/qualities are critical* (gained both inside and outside the classroom—much learning takes place outside via employment, internships, volunteering, networking, career-preparation, etc.). *Employers’ requirements (except now, instead of a grade or diploma, students either do/don’t get an interview or they do/don’t get hired). Guess what? The vast majority of Career Services in higher education are optional for students. So, isn’t higher education doing a true disservice to its graduates, and the employer sector (not to mention--parents, families, communities, and future generations) by not requiring students to utilize Career Services? Remember, students don’t do optional. ~ Darren L. Noble, M.A.; 4.4.14 Career Development Professional https://twitter.com/DarrenLNoble
