San Diego, CA, April 09, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Business Review USA, the top digital media source for American business news, speaks with Henry DeVries, Assistant Dean for External Affairs for Continuing Education at University of California San Diego and co-author of the new book “Closing America’s Job Gap” about the growing industries offering expansion and employment.
DeVries has been the Assistant Dean at UCSD since 2007 and part of his responsibilities is to get the message out to students and beyond about job trends research. “We conduct research regularly for the federal government, private foundations, and for our own students about where new job trends are going,” he says. “We meet with over 1,000 advisors and find out where they see the job trends going; that helps us to shape the 5,000 courses we offer at UCSD to enrollees.”
“We have about 100 advisory boards broken down by different industry segments,” DeVries says. “We use them as sounding boards and also to share information with us. For instance, people in the gaming industry tell us we need certain programmers for mobile game applications and they need certain training to fill those jobs. We take that information back and create courses at UCSD, create internships, and practicums, which are like paid internships, so that students are working in industry they want to be in, while also with the university. So what people are doing there is actually practical for future professional experience.”
