What Are Your Classes Worth?

diceLogo.gifmonsterLogo.gifWhat Are Your Classes Worth? Jeremy Alford is graduating soon, and yesterday he made this suggestion, “Have your students go out to monster.com and do a job search with the skills they will be learning at South Central College to see how valuable these classes are.”

Later, I spoke with my brother who has just landed an excellent job with Verizon in the Twin Cities. He recommended both monster.com and dice.com and suggested that the students put their current resume on-line to help them find internship positions while they go to school. (Monster covers many different fields and Dice focuses just on technical careers.)
