Rachael in MIC
In a recent article in MIC, our founder and CEO, Rachael Nemeth was interviewed by Rainesford Stauffer in a piece titled "Is college worth it? How the gig economy is reshaping higher education."
For Nemeth, there’s a direct connection between the rise of alternative learning credentials, like certificates, and real-world economic demands. [...] “Let’s say you work 50 hours a week, sleep 55 hours and week, commute 15 hours a week, and get personal time the other 48. Why not use work as a training ground?” It makes sense, especially when you factor in the gap in traditional undergrad students who believe they are prepared for the workforce, and employers who disagree.
