Just as we have re-imagined every aspect of the educational experience, Minerva’s Professional Development Agency takes what universities call Career Services to a whole new level. The goal of the Agency is to improve the career trajectory for those who are and have been students, both while in school and for the rest of their lives. This chapter focuses on the initial vision and strategy for the agency model, and then explains how the Agency is structured into three distinct areas: coaching and advising, employer network and job placement, and ongoing professional development support by providing opportunities and training for exposure on public platforms.
