Title: #NowTrending: Gen Z & Microcredentialing
Lead Presenter: Lauren Daly
Date: October 08, 2020    Time: 1:10 pm - 1:55 pm
Room: Semi-Live
Abstract: Gen Z students are increasingly concerned about whether the completion of a costly college degree will ensure them a job after graduation. IBM is one of a growing number of companies that no longer require college degrees from their applicants, instead citing 'candidates who have hands-on experience' as being just as qualified for posted jobs. A national research survey by Northeasten University found that 55% of HR leaders agree that microcredentials are likely to diminish the emphasis on degrees in hiring over the next 5-10 years. Learn how microcredentials, nano degrees, and digital badges are emerging as job qualifications of the future, and discover how to advise students of their growing importance while encouraging them to complete their formal degree programs in the face of a global pandemic.
