Employability in the Curriculum

Karen DiGiacomo · September 1, 2020

As tuition expenses continue to rise at colleges and universities, many students are looking for degrees and credentials that can provide the practical knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their careers. Yet the skills gap between what employers need and what job candidates have is widening. In order to ensure graduates have the knowledge and skills that are needed in today’s workforce, colleges and universities must understand what employers are looking for and integrate job-relevant competencies into the curriculum. This course provides information about where to find employability information as well as how to ensure that the knowledge and abilities employers are seeking are incorporated into the curriculum.

This course will take you approximately 7 hours to complete. A learner who explores the material in more depth will take approximately 9 hours and a learner who skims the course content will take 4 hours.
