Diplomas Don’t Prepare Students for the World. ePortfolios Do

I recently spoke to a frustrated young man who at 25 years old was graduating college in May with a degree in advertising and marketing but he was having a difficult time finding a job. As we spoke a little longer, he shared the degree wasn’t enough. Without experience, doors were being slammed in his face. I was shocked. He was pursuing a career in a field designed to market, advertise, showcase, yet no time or energy had been placed by the school in helping this student do the same for himself. A true example of the College Myth that leaves so many young graduates disappointed. Years and money down the toilet all in turn for a piece of paper heralded as preparation for life, but it is no longer enough!
