College still matters. We have to mend it, don’t end it.
It’s crucial to cultivate a mix of broad and targeted skills.
On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast Tom Vander Ark is joined by Ben Wildavsky to discuss his new book The Career Arts: Answering Big Questions About College and Career. This book makes the case for building career success through broad education, targeted skills, and social capital.
Ben is also a visiting scholar at UVA and hosts the Higher Ed Spotlight podcast.
