Prof. Prasanna Tambe discusses a new survey on entry-level employment
— April 24, 2014
Excerpt from USA Today -- "One of the take-away messages of the survey is that employers are expecting more of their employees in entry-level jobs, says Prasanna Tambe, an assistant professor at the New York University Stern School of Business, and one of the authors of The Talent Equation. Those first jobs are more complex than they used to be, requiring more industry acumen and technical skills, he says. In fact, for many jobs today, it's important to have a blend of interpersonal and technical skills, Tambe says. It's hard to get all that from classes in college. A lot comes from hands-on work experience."
