Abstract

Student development is an amazing progression, but many students are ill-prepared when they enter post-graduate life, particularly in the realm of their career, where the industry of business has a mission that is clearly dualistic. The transition for recent graduates often creates feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt because the campus culture is significantly different from that of corporate America. Businesses want students who are able to fill into positions quickly and easily: this means people who can think critically, work well with teams, and have defined self-vision. Corporate America typically values the same ideals of student development, but somewhere between the campus and the career, students realize they are the product of two fundamentally different systems.
