Unlike College, Work Won’t Have a Syllabus


A few months after graduation, in my first real-world job, I received a piece of feedback from my boss on my performance. It seems although I was out of school, I was still in college mode.

This is an important lesson for all new, or soon to be, graduates. When you get to work the first week, there will be no printed sheet of deadlines and expectations.

Now don’t panic. All the information you need to make a stellar work syllabus for yourself exists in your organization; you just have to find it.

It’s a good question, but if you imagine college-to-career transition as a seamless and low-friction extension of a gamified curriculum you’re probably not too far off.

What do you think the future of college-to-career looks like?
