How to Thrive in College & Beyond: Student Workshop Series

What does it take to thrive in college and beyond? How can students set themselves up for a successful career?

In McGraw-Hill's 2018 Future Workforce study, over only 41% of the 1,000 students surveyed felt extremely or very prepared for their careers. Many of the participants citing that more internships, career preparation, networking, career preparation tools, and more access to college career centers would have helped them feel more prepared.

To help bridging this gap, McGraw-Hill Higher Education is proud to sponsor and share a student-centric, on-demand workshop series called “How to Thrive in College & Your Career”. Drawing on experts from around the academic and business community, the How to Thrive series offers practical, real-world preparation and advice on how to succeed in college and ways in which students can get a jump start on their career.
