First Best Idea
Intern or Apprentice at the Beginning of the College Career
By Starting with the internship instead of ending with it, students would be in a better position to assess what course content is important and even if they like and want to pursue a career in the field. Since most internships are with entry level jobs, and a student's depth of knowledge on theoretical content is mostly irrelevant, hiring an intern at the beginning of their college career would not adversely impact the business, nor would it have to spend additional time in training. Students would have a longer time to network within their fields, providing them with a deeper list of contacts upon their graduation and when they seek their jobs.. As students progress in their studies, they hone their critical thinking skills that will help them adapt to changes in the feild of study and types of jobs they will pursue.
Second Best Idea
Prepare Students to Develop Their Own Jobs.
With the number of graduates always increasing, automation shrinking the number of jobs, and mergers producing fewer employers, the best hope for a new job seeker might be to create their own job. Globalization has not only opened up markets, it has spread the competition to once local jobs to candidates around the world. The every increasing population along with the proportional increase in college graduates means there simply may not be enough jobs to go around. Many jobs are falling victim to automation as artificial intelligence replaces more and more complex jobs with computers. Global mergers have meant fewer active employers further reducing the number of jobs. Creating one's own job might be the best option as a part of a novel start-up or simply a small business. Crowd sourcing, angel investors, family support are all ways that even those with low budgets can aspire to be the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg.
Third Best Idea
Use the Internet to Access Skill Needs
The Internet has democratized learning. As the MOOC movement becomes more prominent and global Internet more ubiquitous, the high tuition demanded by universities will fall away. The current difficulty with online course is that there is no way to absolutely verify who did the work and deserves the certification. But if employers start interns at the beginning of their academic career and do most of the training, they will be able to vet the students. The degree will be more of an esoteric exercise in acquiring critical thinking skills that again the employer can vet as they train the student in newly developed tools, products and services. This class is evidence of the validity of this idea.
