The business of employability
To sum up, I am arguing that making a student employable is a slow, local and personal affair, best achieved through the years in college rather than outside it. It's too granular for the person from the air-ship to grant the grateful recipients; there is no magic formula or secret sauce. Instead, it's groundedness that is key to employability; iteration, experimentation and approximation being the mantra. To be employable, the students require confidence but not a certainty, but rather the flexibility; they are not to see employability as a fixed thing taught in a class, but engagement that needs to be continuously honed. The education for employability is often predicated on the opposite - and hence it does more harm than good.
