Podcast: Good Jobs in Bad Times

The pandemic has dramatically changed the outlook for new college graduates. Matt Sigelman, CEO of Burning Glass Technologies, a labor-market analytics firm, talks with FutureU podcast hosts Jeff Selingo and Michael B. Horn about what higher education can do to help students prepare for life after college.

“If you sort of think about skills as a decoding ring and start to translate our curricula at the course level to a language of skills it empowers a range of things that will be transformative for us in higher education,” Sigelman said.
