I agree there is a definite increase in awareness of the need to consider the linkage between obtaining a degree and the employability of graduates. This linkage is easier to realize where there are student affairs personnel on campuses whose job it is to develop employer relationships and mediate that space between the student and employer while they are in college - and to some degree - afterwards. Career service offices do not exist in most developing nations. However, as my recent workshops with all university deans in Zimbabwe demonstrated, the interest in providing more effective career development support for students does exist.
