In a Teen Vogue story by Heather Schwedel, Wake Forest’s Office of Personal and Career Development was featured as offering creative ways to integrate career education into classes. “Wake Forest asked professors in traditional academic areas like history to be creative about adding real-world applications to their courses. Some responded by tweaking their lesson plans to explicitly include skills companies look for in employees, like communication and collaboration, so students can draw on their classroom experience in job interviews. Wake Forest also introduced “College-To-Career” courses which allow students to earn credit for career planning and job searching.”
