Title: #NowTrending: Gen Z & Microcredentialing
Lead Presenter: Lauren Daly
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Room: 206, DECC
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 who no longer require college degrees from their applicants, instead citing "candidates who have hands-on experience via a coding boot camp or an industry-related vocational class" as potentially 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.
