5th Year: Post Higher Ed Work Within College (Build on this)
Once you graduate college, you're ready for the real world and ready to start at any job. It can be hard, I know, to find relevant work after college and sometimes hard to get your first big start.
Instead of hoping for jobs, interviews and connections, what if a year after college students got experience within their college by using their skills to create Start ups.
This idea is something we joked about with our professors. We had a lot of great ideas and tallent, and a lot of us weren't finding jobs close to graduation.
These projects could be started from a "senior thesis" in the end of your fourth year and could be granted funding after submitting proposals to the college.
