  • The Gig Economy: Preparing High School Students for Careers in 2020

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 04/11/2017

    This webinar will focus on how early career discovery during the college planning process can better prepare students for this new career reality, including tools for developing expertise in project settings aligned to the student’s aptitudes and interests.

    By 2020, approximately 40% of the US workforce will be engaged in quick “gigs” and project-based work. The reality for many students when they graduate will be, “My grandfather had one job during his lifetime, my mom had six—and I will have six gigs all at the same time.” Most college seniors in 2020 will enter the workforce managing a series of projects rather than dedicating years of service to any particular organization. This webinar will focus on how early career discovery during the college planning process can better prepare students for this new career reality, including tools for developing expertise in project settings aligned to the student’s aptitudes and interests.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

    • Understand the ways in which careers are changing for college graduates, including a greater focus on project-based work
    • Develop a plan for using tools to develop expertise in project settings aligned to the student’s aptitudes and interests

  • "Test Optional" with Strings Attached

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/11/2016

    This webinar will highlight examples of "test optional" colleges that penalize students for not submitting scores, require additional essays, or evaluate students using different measures and explore strategies for advising students.

    Fair Test now lists more than 850 test optional schools. As independent educational consultants, how do we advise students to submit scores or not? Do we ask them to prep for the SAT and ACT and invest both time and money because we feel that they will be hurt in the admissions process if they don't provide any score at all? It has become apparent that “test optional" no longer always means that non-submitters will be treated equally in the admissions process to those who submit scores. Colleges have jumped on the “test optional" bandwagon at once declaring that scores don't define an applicant, at the same time adding caveats to those who don't supply those scores. Test optional colleges can exclude students from merit scholarships, ask students for numerous additional admissions essays, or require students to provide scores upon admission. One liberal arts college, for example, gives an automatic score of 20 on the ACT for any student who doesn't provide their own score.

    This webinar will highlight examples of "test optional" colleges that penalize students for not submitting scores, require additional essays, or evaluate students using different measures and explore strategies for advising students.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand the historical context of the use of admissions exams in colleges
    2. Understand the differences between test-free colleges, test-flexible, test-optional colleges, and post-admission test requirements.
    3. Using case examples, learn how institutions evaluate applicants differently for admissions and scholarships (for example, Temple University, Lake Forest College, University of Delaware, Mount Holyoke, Smith, DePaul, Wake Forest, and others)
    4. Gain strategies for advising students on submitting scores, or even taking tests.
