Preparing Students for the World of Work Transition

Companies want to help new grads transition into the world of work, but few managers have the resources, knowledge, and time to meaningfully help them adapt and grow. Whereas, as educators and professionals in the higher education space, you have the opportunity to guide students as they build the foundational skills that employers are looking for.

The transition from acadamia to the dynamic world of work

What if through early and consistent foundational skill building, your students could enter the workforce fully prepared and confident? Now more than ever it is important for college graduates to be career-ready as they transition from academia to the dynamic world of work.

While foundational skills such as critical thinking, communication, and teamwork are called out as essential skills by employers, they are often inconsistently developed and measured in higher ed.

Empowering Students to Begin Their Career with Confidence

The unfortunate reality is that young professionals are entering the world of work unprepared. Less than 1/3 of new grads feel prepared to enter the world of work."

Developing Versatile Young Professionals Prepared for the
World of Work

Education has evolved over the years to incorporate digital learning, mico learning, performance support and more we want to help your institution be on the cutting edge of that transformation. In a recent World Economic Forum Meeting they discussed that “human” skills, these foundational skills we’re teaching, are just as important as digital competencies for future success in the world of work. This is why we’ve developed this program to inspire and grow versatile young professionals who are ready for a fast-paced future.

Through developing these foundational skills, we address the following key competencies subtly, which
young professionals commonly struggle with:

Through tackling independent challenges relating to these competencies and more, students will learn
how to empower themselves without relying on others. They’ll gain confidence in their abilities and thrive
in the world of work.Through NimblyWise solutions, students will learn each and every one of these skills
for success.

Communication, teamwork, leadership, problem solving and complex thinking, sales and customer service are the most in demand competencies in today’s world of work."

Why Now?

It’s time to look at how we can continue this education evolution to provide greater support for our
greatest assets—the next generation. We believe these issues must be addressed in the future of learning
and education, to build a stronger workforce for the future:

Overwhelm From the College to Career Transition

American college students are increasingly overwhelmed by the college to career transition. 60% of students felt "overwhelming" anxiety, while 40% experienced depression so severe they had difficulty functioning. If we provide students with the skills needed to thrive, it may help alleviate some of the anxiety and stress causing these mental health struggles.

Inevitable Remote-Work Shift

COVID-19 has altered the landscape of the working world with hybrid and remote work structures that make it more difficult for students to find work they enjoy. These educational opportunities will allow them to be more flexible, marketable, and confident in their search.

Urgent Need for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

It’s time we level the playing field in terms of opportunity and advancement in the world of work. Accessible learning and development opportunities earlier in a student’s education are key.

The 4th Industrial Revolution

Due to automation, artificial intelligence and outsourcing, continuous learning will be required to remain competitive and relevant. If students are able to embrace foundational skills and real-time learning early on, they can apply it to any pivot needed in their career journey.

It’s time to look at how we can continue this education evolution to provide greater support for our greatest assets—the next generation. We believe these issues must be addressed in the future of learning and education, to build a stronger workforce for the future:
