This 'Gutenberg-scale Moment': Career Services Featured in 'Prepared U'

Jeanne-Marie Ryan, executive director of the Center for Career Development

How you go to school can be as important as where you go to school in a rapidly changing, challenging world, says Bentley University president Gloria Cordes Larson in her new book, "Prepared U: How Innovative Colleges Drive Student Success." Cordes Larson recognizes Davidson's Center for Career Development (CCD) for making career education a centerpiece of the college experience.

Cordes Larson argues that colleges and universities must change the way education is provided to address this "Gutenberg-scale moment" in history, and career development efforts figure prominently into her recommended approach. Davidson CCD Executive Director Jeanne-Marie Ryan is quoted, outlining Davidson's four-year engagement plan that begins with freshmen taking the Myers-Briggs test and ends with seniors focusing on "day-one professional readiness so that when they arrive in the workplace or graduate school, they are ready to hit the ground running."

"Prepared U" is available in bookstores everywhere, including Amazon.
