Solutions for Change in Education
The Economic Achievement Gap | No End in Site
“Being a recent graduate working closely with higher education institutions in the field of employment has given me the opportunity to examine the current state of the education system from a unique perspective. My peers are recent graduates struggling to secure jobs in our weakened economy. Unfortunately, the universities from which we just left, after accumulating substantial student loan debt, are not doing their part. This series of white papers, Solutions for Change in Education, hopes to shed light on the shortcomings of career services departments and highlight potential solutions. This is a call to action for the education system in America.”
Vizibility’s innovative approach, called PreSearch™, is a proactive strategy where users pre-select the information they want displayed in search results. Through a simple wizard, the Vizibility service makes it a snap for users to quickly create and share the optimal Google search for themselves and their companies. Vizibility’s patent-pending service provides users with a free, permanent SeachMe link and button which return just these results. This PreSearch can be added easily to online profiles, websites, resumes, email signatures, business cards and anywhere else they have to be visible.
