Providing career opportunities is the major goal of many a college and university. Institutions which offer these programsrequire an efficient and timely method for determining which skills to teach in their programs. In addition, the job searchprocess itself requires additional skills such as interviewing and networking. This research postulates that the skill set andmethods of looking for new employees differ for the hiring manager versus the non-hiring manager. Specifically, hiringmanagers may place more emphasis on networking as a way to find employees and may require a different set ofcommunication and technical skills. A research design is discussed.
