Opening Plenary Session
9:00 - 10:15 am
Employability and Career Readiness Fireside Chat
Employability is a buzz word that seems to have a myriad of meanings and connotations but what does it really mean? Why should higher-ed professionals care?
National Student Success Conference attendees should join Troy Markowitz, vice president of partnerships at Portfolium and Michael Preston Ed. D., executive director of the Florida Consortium of Metropolitan Research Universities for a “fireside chat” on employability.
During this session, the importance of hiring trends, higher-ed’s role in employability, and ways to connect students to potential employers will be explored.
