2022 High Impact Career Practices Summit
Who should attend?
The High Impact Career Practices Summit is intended for college and university administrators, faculty, and career service staff teams who are intent on understanding, measuring, and strategically growing equitable career success on their campus.
Why High Impact Career Practices?
There was previously a large gap in the data related to which campus career practices lead to success, confusing decisions about strategic career development investments. With the rise of career success as a priority in campus strategic plans, the call from parents, prospective students, and alumni for clarity in return on investment, and the need to show equity in outcomes, a data-informed and strategic pursuit of campus career practices must be prioritized. Higher education leaders have long pursued the high impact practices which are most likely to assist in learning retention and student engagement, and are now in search of the big data to understand which campus practices significantly impact career and social mobility. When understood and pursued, there are clear associations with increased alumni belief in the value of their degree, career satisfaction, pathway preparation, and economic stability. Furthermore, prospective students primarily choose to attend higher education for career success, financial security, and a path to their career aspirations.
So what can your campus do? This summit is an investment in helping your campus understand, transform, and trumpet career success.
High Impact Career Practices
The NACM Research
The Career Leadership Collective developed the National Alumni Career Mobility (NACM) survey in order to assist higher education with understanding alumni career mobility and making more strategic decisions to prioritize career readiness. By the start of this high impact career practices summit, the NACM survey will have 3 consecutive years of survey administration yielding alumni data on over 30,000 alumni from 250+ campuses. The NACM research to date has created a Career Mobility Index to discover the most significant high impact career practices. They are listed below and demand discussion, debate, definition, pursuit, and practices. A deeper understanding can be found in the most recent NACM survey report from August 2021.
