Preparing Our Students for the Global Marketplace
By Stacie Nevadomski Berdan
I’m on college campuses a lot talking up the importance of preparing our students for the global marketplace. I have met so many campus counselors eager to help their students in this area because they know globalization is here, but have a hard time helping students package their skills. Even though they know in their gut that students need to do it, many counselors don’t have significant international experience to help them. Moreover, students (and their parents) don’t necessarily think they need to look for global jobs and so counselors seek out a credible outsider to make a difference.
