    Chronicle of Higher Education - 09/09/2013

    Unless they plan to go directly to graduate school, recent graduates need more exposure to the real world of work, short-term opportunities to exercise their knowledge and talents and explore their interests before going on the job market. Some get that through internships or attend the few colleges, such as Northeastern University or Drexel University, where cooperative-education programs place students in jobs as part of the formal curriculum. But more colleges need to create additional pathways to the workplace, modeled on apprenticeships or programs like Teach for America, the National College Advising Corps, and Venture for America, which place recent college graduates in schools or start-ups for a couple of years as a bridge to a career.
