HOW IT WORKS / HOW TO WIN
Participants will submit a text and video description of their innovation. In both the text description and the video, please explain: the problem you were solving, the actual innovation, how you implemented the idea, the results your effort, the number and populations of students or employers or other stakeholders that you served, and how you hope to iterate more on your innovation.
The Collective is interested in submissions related to unique connections for career service within the campus ecosystem, scaling career services to reach more, career in the classroom initiatives, data visualization and story telling efforts, new models of career on campus, innovation in diversity and inclusion with career development, successful change efforts, and other novel ideas.
