Innovation in Career Development: Helping Higher Ed Students Broaden Their Horizons by Looking Beyond Job Titles

Presented by JP Michel

Tuesday, January 17, 2023
6:30 - 7:30 pm (Eastern Time)

The old paradigm of matching students to job titles is no longer serving us. The realities of our changing world of work demand that we help students look beyond job titles. Instead, we can help them to find inspiring challenges to work on. This new approach to career exploration is called the Challenge mindset. During this presentation, participants will learn about how career services leaders are using a Challenge mindset to promote equity. When students are asked “What do you want to do?” their answers reflect what they already know, thus reinforcing their status quo. By helping students explore through the lens of job titles, they broaden their horizons and discover new possibilities. For the last 5 years, more than 50,000 students have used the Challenge mindset to explore challenges to solve, the companies working on them, the people who work there, and what they need to learn to be able to do that. Join this session to explore how higher education institutions are using this approach to get results with their students, and how you can experiment with this approach on your campus.
