EPISODE 261 A University education used to be a way that the elite could set themselves apart.  Universities were originally set up to help It would help one learn how to be a critical thinker and instill the values to be a good citizen. Preparing you for a job was never the intent of a University or College.  Now  that a college degree has become a sorting hat for employers, a way to weed out applicants, it is important to view the college experience differently.  In today’s podcast Dr. Bray shares some ways to think differently about the college/university experience, along with the tuition bill that goes with it!

 

EPISODE CONTENT
Research shows that when you go to college there is no significant improvement in cognitive skills. As technology, the economy, communication and the way we work has changed, universities have lost touch with how to prepare students for their first job. The career center at the university is a peripheral department that is not equipped to fulfill it’s job.  Universities and Colleges don’t feel it is their job to assist you in finding a career.

School didn’t used to be as expensive as it is now, graduating without debt is almost unheard of now. Where is all the money going?

  1. Real Estate
  2. Sports teams and complexes
  3. Research
  4. Rankings such as US News and World Report

A lot of universities have identified their lack of preparing their students for the workforce, but have not instituted the changes needed to prepare students for their first job.  Dr. Bray covers what to look for when choosing a school, as well as what may be missing from your undergraduate education.

Choosing Your School

  1. Choose your degree wisely.
  2. How will you pay for it?
  3. What do they have to offer?
  4. What scholarships are available?
  5. What will the school do to help you get your degree?
  6. How is the school preparing you to be successful at your first job?
  7. What education/skills do you need to gain (outside of the classroom) to be prepared for your first job?  How can the school help?
