Undergraduates and postgraduates are disillusioned and disenchanted because the work opportunities they thought would materialize as the natural consequence of their completing their studies haven’t. Their stories and their plight have been featured in articles in the print, electronic and mass media and the prognosis is less than rosy. (Please see my post dated January 24th.)
If you teach students in their senior year and are involved in the decision-making processes that precede those decisions, we’d very much like to hear from you about what you’ve seen and heard and what you think about what you’ve seen and heard. You might even want to share your thoughts and impressions with our audience—anonymously if necessary.
My colleagues and I at Personal Due Diligence think we may have some of the answers. But having them and communicating them to a receptive audience are two different things. The better we understand what that audience is thinking, why and under what circumstances, the better and more fulfilling their decision-making will be.
If you’re not a secondary school teacher but know someone who is, please let them know about us. All expressions of interest will be acknowledged and held in strictest confidence.
