What type of skills will young graduates need when they enter the workforce in the coming years?
Young graduates should be critically skilled with regard to the (quick) adaptability of effective digital media applications, communications in-the-know, and communication (content) packaging and dissemination - both for office dynamics and engagement publics (consumers, audiences, etc.). Graphic design students especially should be willing to become "citizen designers", using their skills to address social issues and to advance social change in helping to solve problems of the community or of society, in general, locally, nationally, or globally. Graduates should work on developing good oral communication, time management, digital literacy, and telecommuting skills. And, don't forget empathy.
