Preparing the Next Generation

In a scarce job market for emerging professionals- experience is the key to putting new graduates ahead of their competitors. "You have to be an active participant in this educational process" says Brian Howard, Professor at Brigham Young University Idaho. Brian hosts the television show Latter-day Profiles, a program produced completely by students. The purpose of the program is to run a professional students oriented agency to prepare students at the university to compete for employment in the work force. Learn more about what Brian has to say on American Dreams.
