  2. Students also have strong desire to design their own courses for future career – “That is, it either requires more skill or can be done by more people around the world or is being buried — made obsolete — faster than ever.” (Friedman, 2013)

Customize majors to suit students’ passions:

  1. Most of the majors that are offered in our universities are already predetermined.
  2. Students lacks opportunity to pursue their inner passion because these majors were designed without their passions in mind and becoming time wasting. (Kowarski, 2010)
  3. This can be solved by customizing majors to suit the passions of students.

Encourage critical thinking:

  1. Our education systems concentrate on equipping students with theoretical knowledge rather than preparation for employment.
  2. Schools should focus more on teaching students to become critical thinker so that they can become more of job creators than job seekers. (Khan, 2014)

Tech communication:

  1. Communication is a vital skill for employment but is less taught in schools.
  2. No matter how good one is in their area of expertise, they must have good communication skills because they can’t work in isolatiation. (Walsh, 2017)
  3. Learning about how to communicate and interact with colleagues and other professionals is therefore a requirement in order to excel.

Conclusion:

  1. The ultimate goal of education should be to prepare students ripe for employment and innovation such that they can become job creators on their own.
  2. There are three ways discussed in the article to help universities prepare their students for employment: Customizing majors to suit students’ passion, encouraging critical thinking and improving communication skills
