How important are the right global competencies and mindsets for your institution’s candidates, students and graduates? How high of a priority is the employability of your alumni? How can HEIs shift their mindset from job seeking upon graduation to lifelong learning for employability? In this campfire session, we will discuss how employability is evolving and increasingly connected to the full student lifecycle, including marketing to attract candidates and internationalisation.
