In 2016, Penn State's Smeal College Career Center decided that they needed to overhaul how they were presenting digital resources and communicating with students. Knowing that career is a primary student motivator, they needed to find a way to deliver a more engaging and personalized experience. While Smeal had plenty of student resources, they were all in different buckets - making them difficult to manage and hard for students to find.
In our second #CareerEverywhere Webinar, Ashley Rippey, Director of Smeal's Business Career Center, discussed how her team was able to use technology to create one communication hub that delivers a better experience for students, makes it easier to curate and present digital resources, and ensures that their digital identity doesn't look like it was created in the 90’s!
