The evolving role of career services
An article in The Wall Street Journal (Mar. 6) noted that the process of matching business school graduates to jobs is becoming more personalized. Frederick Staudmyer, director of the Career Management Center, noted that companies are not hiring en masse as they used to do and are often more interested in finding business school graduates with highly specific skills. Essentially, the process of matchmaking is becoming more specialized, and career services organizations such as those at Johnson are evolving in order to ensure better fits between graduates and their future employers. Staudmyer’s comments suggest that this is a good time for students to keep honing their specialized skills.
