This year’s program, fueled by community input, showed a high interest in enhancing employability skills, which is a core focus of the collective work being done by educators, administrators, policy makers, and business leaders in order to successfully prepare students for the workforce.
With a job market that is increasingly competitive and constantly changing, explore this year’s sessions that will shine a light on the current landscape and the need for more equitable employability strategies for anyone in or joining the workforce.
At SXSW EDU 2023, speakers will share how to implement the takeaways you learn at conferences, the importance of micro internships, how to leverage technology to learn new skills, and more to help prepare students for future employment or even help you advance your own career.
