Hendrix College, in Arkansas, just created a free three-day Career Term that sophomores can attend during winter break, when the dorms are otherwise empty and the facilities unused. Participants take self-assessments, learn interview skills and email etiquette, and practice dressing professionally. Hendrix plans to make the course a requirement for all sophomores in 2020.
"The dorms are just sitting there. The RAs are cheap, and a lot of the alumni are local," says Hendrix’s president, Bill Tsutsui. "This is a five-digit program, not a six."
