Career service as a measure to support employability: a comparison between the University of Florence and the University of Lagos
No Thumbnail Available
The paper examines models and activities of career services as a measure to support students’ employability in higher education. It presents a comparative study between the University of Florence (Italy) and the University of Lagos (Nigeria). It starts from a meso-level analysis of service models and data based on institutional university reports. In fact, the literature at international level illustrates the relevance of career service organisations in supporting the educational process. The analysis of the models and structures of career service in both institutions has proven that they will help to implement measures to support employability. The common trend, from a future perspective, can be traced in close cooperation with stakeholders. The integration of employers’ points of view as well as the co-planning of training and matching activities represent some of the key elements for creating connections at the higher education level. We can thus state that career services are expanding in scope and method in response to global employment trends and socio-economic, political and technological development.
