  Ask Deb: Preparing Recent Grads For The Workforce
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2016
I recently interviewed four candidates for an entry-level position on my team. One thing that is absolutely clear at the end of this experience is that college career centers are giving their students bad, outdated advice!
