Alors en quelques points, voici comment rendre votre profil plus attrayant et faire en sorte qu’il retienne l’attention du recruteur et suscite son intérêt.
Conseil n°1 : un profil à jour, c’est le B.A-BA

Le recruteur cherche à connaître votre situation actuelle et vos expériences passées, qu’il s’agisse de votre formation ou de vos expériences professionnelles. Soyez clair, faites apparaître les dates, les lieux, les intitulés de diplômes et de postes et surtout, soyez honnête. S’il y a des réussites, des distinctions, faites-les apparaître, de manière factuelle. Suite de l'article...

Sciences-Po ParisAfin de mettre un terme à la crise que traverse l'Institut d'études politiques de Paris, Geneviève Fioraso a décidé de confier l'administration provisoire de Sciences Po à Jean Gaeremynck, Conseiller d'Etat, président adjoint de la section des finances du Conseil d'Etat.
Après la publication du rapport définitif de la Cour des comptes sur Sciences Po le 22 novembre, j'ai indiqué que les conditions n'étaient pas réunies pour donner suite aux délibérations des instances dirigeantes en vue de désigner le nouveau directeur. J'ai aussi précisé que je procèderai sous peu à la nomination d'un nouvel administrateur provisoire.
Après avoir consulté les présidents des deux conseils, j'ai décidé de confier cette responsabilité à Jean Gaeremynck, Conseiller d'Etat, président adjoint de la section des finances du Conseil d'Etat.
Les grandes compétences et l'expérience confirmée de M. Gaeremynck lui confèrent toute l'autorité pour atteindre les objectifs qui seront confirmés par une lettre de mission:
  • assurer la continuité de direction à la tête de l'I.E.P. de Paris;
  • engager la mise en œuvre des recommandations de la Cour des comptes pour mettre fin aux dysfonctionnements relevés par celle-ci et améliorer la gouvernance;
  • préparer avec les conseils dirigeants les conditions de nomination du futur directeur, dans les meilleurs délais;
  • proposer, en lien avec la Fondation nationale des sciences politiques (F.N.S.P.), l'adaptation des statuts de Sciences Po.

Je remercie les présidents des deux instances qui m'ont assurée de leur plein soutien à la mission de l'administrateur provisoire, laquelle prendra fin dès qu'un nouveau directeur aura été sélectionné et désigné au terme d'une procédure ouverte, transparente et incontestable.
Je remercie aussi l'ensemble des personnels et des étudiants de Sciences Po pour l'esprit de responsabilité dont ils ont fait preuve tout au long des derniers mois, et pour l'assistance qu'ils apporteront à M. Gaeremynck dans son travail.
Toutes les conditions sont désormais réunies pour que tous, étudiants, enseignants, chercheurs, personnels administratifs, retrouvent rapidement un cadre de travail apaisé et serein, au service d'une institution reconnue qui mérite sa place au cœur de notre enseignement supérieur.

Higher education becomes Australia’s biggest service export

http://img.australiaforum.com/nav/images/new_logo.pngBy Ray Clancy. Australia’s bid to attract more students from overseas is succeeding with a new report showing that higher Education is contributing significantly to the country’s economic prosperity.
It is the country’s largest service export and plays a leading role in the economies of Australia’s most populous states of Victoria and New South Wales. Education is Victoria’s largest export and it is the second biggest in New South Wales, a report by consultant Alan Olsen shows. Universities Australia’s chief executive Belinda Robinson said the report highlights the contribution of international education to Australia’s economic prosperity as it finds education exports have doubled in value every five years from 1990 to 2010, overtaking tourism as the top service export in 2007/2008.

Americans believe higher education should be reformed

BannerBy Jordan Bower. Survey finds 83 percent of those polled think U.S. institutions must change to remain globally competitive.
A recent survey commissioned by Northeastern University showed most Americans believe U.S. colleges need to undergo reforms to remain competitive in an international education system, even though they value the current system.
The survey, released Tuesday, found 83 percent of Americans believe “the U.S. higher education system needs to change to remain competitive with other countries around the world,” even while 75 percent ranked the United States’ college system ahead of other countries’.
The survey, conducted last October by the global business advisory firm FTI Consulting, interviewed 1,001 American adults by phone and 250 Americans under the age of 30 via the Internet. It has an error rate of 3.1 percent. More...

Partnerships in tertiary education hold tremendous potential

By Vandana Ramnani. In a freewheeling interview, minister for education and skills in the Welsh Government, Leighton Andrews, talks about issues such as the withdrawal of the post-work visa options for students, future plans of Welsh universities and comments on recent media reports that university professors in the UK are often pressurised to accept sub-standard work by overseas students for financial reasons.
How have tough visa rules and withdrawal of the post-work visa option impacted the number of Indian students planning to pursue their higher studies in the UK, especially Wales. What corrective measures/alternative options have been worked out to check the likelihood of the numbers going down?
While immigration is not a devolved matter, the Welsh Government is aware of the potential impact of the UK Government's immigration policy on the ability of Welsh higher education institutions to attract international students. 
The introduction of tighter controls is aimed at identifying bogus institutions and students and this is welcomed by me and the higher education sector. More...

In Global Education Rankings, Asian Tigers Nip At Finland’s Heels

http://s1.ibtimes.com/sites/www.ibtimes.com/themes/us_ibtimes/logo.pngBy Jacey Fortin. A new report has ranked Finland as the best educational performer on Earth. At first glance, the findings are a bit odd. You might expect the best performers – or the worst, for that matter – to come from the same general region.
Finland in first place? That’s no surprise -- those northern European countries always seem to do well on lists like these. But the next four countries are worlds away; No. 2 is South Korea. Then comes Hong Kong-China, then Japan, and then Singapore.
With a gang of Asian powerhouses in ascendancy, Finland is looking pretty lonely at the top. As for global superpowers, the United Kingdom comes in 6th. The United States is in 17th place. Russia snagged 20th; France, 25th. And of the 40 ranked, the three worst countries were Mexico, Brazil and Indonesia. The report, called “The Learning Curve,” was produced by the Economist Intelligence Unit, or EIU, and published by Pearson, an educational firm. It ranks countries according to various criteria, including standardized test scores, matriculation and literacy rates. More...

Education ministry warns UAE students of unaccredited online degrees

The NationalBy . The Ministry of Higher Education has warned students to check with it before starting internet courses, after complaints about unaccredited degrees from an online university actively recruiting in the UAE.
Dr Bader Aboul-Ela, director of the commission for academic accreditation at the ministry, said Must University is granting degrees to students who later found difficulty in having them attested.
"We tell them they should have consulted us first," Dr Aboul-Ela said. "For any Emirati to get their online degree attested they have to get a no-objection from us before they commence. It’s for their own protection." More...

Japan's university education crisis

The Japan Times OnlineBy GREGORY CLARK. Education minister Makiko Tanaka has apologized for trying to cancel approvals given by her ministry bureaucrats for three institutions seeking to operate as fully fledged four-year universities providing undergraduate degrees. But should she have apologized?
There is a crisis in Japanese tertiary education. Student numbers decline while the number of approved universities increases relentlessly — by almost 100 in the last 10 years. Some 45 percent of private universities cannot fill the student number quotas set by Education Ministry (MEXT); this year 18 of them could not even reach half their quota. In desperation many will accept almost anyone who applies, provided they have a pulse as the saying goes. Some have already gone bankrupt. More will follow. More...
